Most of us are familiar with the Julep Maven boxes (If not, click here). The typical polishes in the first "American Beauty" box is Julep Cameron and Julep Alfre. I decided not to swatch these since the polishes are already featured on many other blogs!
Instead I got creative--who knew Julep polishes were good for stamping! In addition to Cameron and Alfre, I ordered "Amy" separately-- only because my name is Amy (Yah, I am a dork, but thought it was awesome). Please note that Alfre is not featured in this post. So here is what I came up with!
I painted the tips free handed with Julep Cameron. Then I used the Konad m79 plate, Julep Amy, and Kleancolor Black to stamp on the design. In these photos, there is no top coat. I choose to add the top coat after the photos. (The lighting where I take my photos does not like top coat when the polish is stamped directly on the nail. For some reason the top coat/reflection blurs out the polishes and makes it looked smeared or nonexistent).
Just some quick photos to show you how I used multiple colors on a stamping plate at the same time!
