Exotic Stamping Encounters

Can you believe I am still in Bali?! it seems like it's been ages!
But I am not complaining))) I even picked up some OPI's - addiction's hard to beat!

Here is a recent NOTD:
Natural Light

I started with a coat of CG Exotic Encounters, then added Konad M63 and BM 208
using Sportsgirl Love Potion and Face of Australia Gold.

This is the first time I tried layering stamps,
it came out a little too subtle - maybe I'll go bolder next time.

At this angle it's easier to see the layered stamps

What do you think? Maybe a matte top coat next time?
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I am reading all the lovely comments - will respond once I return - cheers!!!

  3. It looks awesome and I'm so jealous that you're in Bali right now! If are planning to go to the North of Bali, my uncle has some awesome bungalow facilities in Lovina http://www.kubulalang.com/

    1. Thanks!! Unfortunately the top coat idea only occurred to me after I took it off, but I'll make a note for next time LOL

  6. I'm so jealous that you're in Bali right now! Have you visited Angkor Wat? That site's tops on my 'places to see before I die' list! I really like the subtlety of your stamped look; it reminds me of water 'shadows' on the sand at a tropical beach.

    1. Angkor Wat is in Cambodia (I think), but we did visit many interesting places in Bali too)) Thanks for the lovely words about this design - that is a very poetic description!

  7. Hi Natalsie,
    Thanks for checking out my blog and following. This mani is very cool. This is a very nice shade of green, and with the stamp it's Christmassy without being over the top either. Very nice..I like over the top and subtle..depending on what I'm doing. I'll try this the next time I want a subtle look with a bit of glitz too :)
