Some Santa Stamping

Hey everyone!
It's been a long time since i'd done any stamping
(mainly because i'm no good at it),
but I thought i'd try my hand at some festive Christmas stamping the other day.
I used a stamp from the Konad stamping plate I had in my most recent giveaway.

Here's Santa over 2 coats of Color Club's 'Berry and Bright'.
** Let me go ahead and ask you to forgive my middle finger. The darn thing chipped right before I took these pictures & I didn't have time to fix it ://

'Berry and Bright' is a vivacious red shimmer with blue/purple flecks that can be seen in sunlight. You can kind of see it here, but not as clearly as it looks in real life. 'Berry and Bright' is part of CC's Winter Affair collection. So far I have tried 3 different polishes from this collection, and loved them ALL.

The Santa & Merry Christmas stamp are from Konad stamping plate m12 using white Konad polish.
I attempted the 'merry christmas' stamp a dozen times- and this was the best out of them all. Sad. But my stamping skills are going to be lackluster until I practice with them more, which I never seem to have time to do :/

I liked this mani okay. It was fun and gave me a chance to use my new stamping plate,
but I'm not crazy about it. The plate and the polish are great, I just don't like how I've used them together here.
What do you guys think?
