Champagne Bubbles Stamped

I was at Sally’s to pick up some facial wax and I just couldn’t resist, they had some great polishes on clearance so I picked up two more Orly’s, Shining Star and Twlight, two lovely glitters I picked up for $1.99 each! I also picked up FingerPaints Red Crackle for the same price and then they had Champagne Bubbles, Skyscraper, Poinsettia, and Iron Cross 360 which looks a lot like Riveting, so I had to give it a home in my collection. I also picked up Instant Artificials and it’s really working out nicely as a new base coat.

I want to try to stamp with Champagne Bubbles, but for now I used it as the base color for my current manicure. I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri’s in Pronto Purple which looked red on this gold base color, and Co-Bolt Blue, which turned green on this base color. I did okay on the stamping, still not as perfect as I would like it to be, but it’s still good. I seem to get better results when I stamp at night, it’s like the winds die down enough I can get it on my nails before it dries on the stamper.

I hope you like this manicure, I am not as pleased with it as I had hoped I would be, but then it’s just on for a little while, it’s not like I have to leave it on for longer then I want to. That’s the best part of having a nail polish hobby interest. You can change them as often as you like. I hope that you enjoy your polishes as much as I enjoy mine. I am pondering the purchase of either a helmer from Ikea, or a 3 drawer storage cube sometimes called a melmer, because you get it from Michael’s or Hobby Lobby. When I get one I’ll post stash pictures. We got the new camera, but I am still learning to get the settings right. Luckily this camcorder doesn’t do too bad in sunlight. That’s all for now, happy polishing!


  1. Have you used CG, 'Champagne Bubbles' to stamp, does it come out?

  2. Hi Rozae,

    Yes I did test it out on this manicure here:

    It's the one on the index finger nail. It wasn't too bad. I liked the Revlon in Golden better though, that was on the middle finger nail. I hope it lets me share that pic. If it doesn't make a link of it copy that URL and it will take you to the pic I snapped of it over Rapid Red. Thanks for commenting!


Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your feedback!
