I recently learned how to stamp much better than you've seen here in the past. The secret was getting what is called a "squishy" stamper instead of my regular Konad one. I found one on Ninjapolish.com! The squish stamper molds to your nail eliminating the wiggle issues with a hard stamper you have to roll over the nail.
The idea for this nail design came out of a stamping group I'm in. Each Sunday they put out a challenge and this week it was to stamp over a black base. I took that a step further and picked a deep charcoal black holo. This is two coats of Hits Zeus stamped over with an unnamed silver holo from Urban Outfitters.
For the stamp, I picked a Halloween-esque set of fingerprints from Bundle Monster plate BM-414. These aren't as in your face as I wanted, but they still were very fun to look at IRL and I got several compliments on the sparkliness of my nails.

Hits polishes have a pretty wide brush and stiffer bristles than I am used to, however with some practice I was able to paint with minimal clean up much easier than I usually do with standard brushes. The color payoff was perfect in two coats and I am going to go back and wear this polish on its own at sometime.
