I bring you a Color Club polish, one of my favorites, Pure Energy. It’s a vibrant bright blue that is just beautiful on its own, but I think it’s really an incredible base for stamping. I used two coats, of Pure Energy and then one layer of Poshe as the top coat. I think it could have used a third coat, but I don’t like to do three coats as there’s more chance I’ll ding it and mess up the manicure.
Now for the stamping, I used plates from the 3rd Bundle Monster set, BM317 for the hearts on my ring fingernails with Sinful Color’s Black on Black, and then plate BM315 for the cool fishnet looking mesh with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, in Silver Sweep. It’s not a perfect stamping by any means, but I’ve long since learned that there’s really no such thing as a perfect manicure. There’s always going to be a little room for improvement somewhere, but for what it is, I am really delighted by it. One of these days I’ll get around to stamping with that pretty bronze Insta-Dri I picked up from the Dollar Tree. Look for a new manicure soon and as always, I wish you happy polishing.
