The weekend before last, I talked Matt into taking me to Claire's because I hadn't been there in some time. It worked out in my favor because he wanted to go buy some new shoes for a 10 K he ran in this just this last weekend. I only anticipated finding polish but I found something much better for me.
Claire's now has stamping nail art kits and they are part of the usual BOGO deal. I didn't take photos of the kits because I'm lame like that. You can check the one I'm going to show a design from HERE though.
I got two kits. The aforementioned and another that had alphabet, numerical and catchphrase themed plates. I will scan all the plates to show the designs but it ain't happening today.
The plates themselves are nice quality and the kits also come with stamper, scraper and polish. The polish isn't bad, I did not have high expectations so this was a nice surprise. The stamper that came with the alphabet plate was a little stiffer but works great. The stamper in the other kit is crazy squishy and I found works okay. It's good for a really large and detailed design but I much prefer the other stamper.

So here's what I did with the Signs of Spirit kit:
