I bring you a color I’ve worn before, but this time I stamped over it. It’s Color Club’s Beyond the Mistletoe, a gorgeous blue glitter that my old camera failed to capture as did my new camera. It’s so sparkly it’s hard to capture. On my previous entry on this polish I applied it over Color Club Pure Energy, this time I just did two coats on its own. I think it worked out fine. However, I had to really, really thin it, I must have added 2 ml’s of thinner, seriously! And it was still rather thick, but not to the point it was unworkable. I was just careful to not overload the brush.
I used BM318 and two Sally Hansen Insta-Dri’s, one in Rapid Red, and the other in Mint Sprint. I did originally plan on only stamping the ring finger, which is why it’s the only one that’s off centered. But that’s how it goes, like I’ve said before and say to myself at times like that, “There’s no such thing as a perfect manicure,” which makes it easier to swallow having an imperfection or two in one. I will definitely be redoing this manicure, but over a different color, the Adventures In Stamping group on Facebook has a challenge this Sunday for Stamping over Glitter, and I can’t stamp on weekends with my son home.
I hope you like it, I really do, it sparkles in the sunshine like no one’s business and I now know the combo of the two Insta-Dri’s work great together! So mission accomplished! I want to thank all of you who have recently started following Nail Soup, I really appreciate it, I know I don’t have the best or biggest blog around, but I really do enjoy bringing different nail art and manicures to you, so a big huge “Thank you” to all the new followers and to all of you still following the blog, I don’t have any house news right now, but I’ll definitely post when I do. Thanks for checking out the blog and I wish you all happy polishing!
