The Subtle and the not so subtle

I thought before I changed my polish, I'd play some more with my new found love of nail stamping. The results came out so good I was shocked and pleased. So much so that I thought I would share it with you. Please ignore the tip wear- that's not part of the design!

The base is Essie Smooth Sailing. The first 4 pictures I used Essie Aruba Blue and Konad plate M21 for the subtle look. The last 4 pictures I used the Konad black polish with the same plate design. The not so subtle look.

I can't decide which look I like better! I am obviously starting to master this stamping stuff. The designs are almost lined up perfectly and all the lines are there. Score! I just ordered the Bundle Monster set of 25 plates and can't wait to create new funky things with that.

I also dug out my digital camera to use for my pictures. I think it takes better pictures and I can do more close up shots. I had thought I had ruined my camera by getting snowflakes in it that left waterspots on the pictures. I guess after a year of sitting, the water evaporated. Plus, this shows the real color of Smooth Sailing.

What do you think? Are the pictures better?

And are you subtle or not so much?
