Sunshine Pop Stamped

I originally bought this polish to water marble with, but it wouldn’t spread in the water when I dropped some in, it sunk like a stone. I wasn’t sure if I would wear this color or not, but after picking up two of the Sally Hansen Color Quick polishing pens in Chrome Turquoise I thought it would look nice on this bright yellow. I tried to take photographs last night of Sunshine Pop on its own, but the flash kept firing so I had to give up since I don’t know how to disengage the auto-flash ‘feature.’

First the China Glaze polish was great to work with, I was surprised it wasn’t streaky and that two coats gave me opaque coverage. It has a slight shimmer to it but I know my new camera wouldn’t have been able to capture it even if the flash had allowed me to properly photograph it last night. I will definitely wear this one again. I topped it with Instant Artificials and then Seche Vite and it dried and set within one hour of application. I will report on this combination here, as I think that using the Instant Artificials as a second base coat was making my polish chip faster.

Now the Sally Hansen Color Quick polishing pen was really awesome to stamp with, however the ‘brush’ would be extremely difficult to use on nails. On nail plates for stamping it worked perfectly. I loved the shiny metallic turquoise over the bright yellow of Sunshine Pop and I hope you like the combination too. I used Bundle Monster plate 224, which I really do enjoy stamping with. I was pretty impressed with the Sally Hansen Color Quick polishing pen’s formula too. It dried fast and was a delight to stamp with.




I hope this manicure lasts until Monday, so we’ll see. If it doesn’t make it until then, I’ll be redoing my nails and reporting back here to let you know how long it did manage to last. I am still experimenting on finding the right combination of base coats and top coats that work together to make for a long lasting manicure. I wish you happy polishing and thank you for reading.
