Hey Everyone!!! Ok I think blogger is finally cooperating with me and I can get this posted. I always have a problem moving my pictures around once uploaded when I try and blog at work. I was so tired last night I just uploaded the pictures but didn't make sure they were in the right order. I just spent way too long and had two different browers shut down on my when I was trying to get them arranged. Sometimes computers and I do not get along well. I am so excited to finally have finished that blanket I was working on. I forgot to upload a picture of it so I will have to show you that tomorrow.
Today I have an amazing polish from Smitten Polish. This is one of the Shipwrecked! polishes and it is amazing! I just recently was able to get this baby and I am so excited. I don't know why I didn't get it sooner and I am amazed that Noelie still has stock of this gorgeous polish.
A close up of the two stamping designs. I used three coats of The Isabella Emerald.
The application was great and I had no issues with the consistency. Toward the end of the mani I did realize that next time I will probably want to add some thinner as it got a little thicker. I also like my polishes pretty thin so it would probably be fine for a normal person.
I really love how much depth the glitter gives this polish. It makes me think of a faceted gemstone with the way the glitter reacts to the lighting.
This one was way shinier in person but the weather didn't cooperate and it was very very overcast. It has been raining all week which of course makes taking good pictures fun.
Such a pretty shade of green. I usually don't like gold but I thought it went perfectly with the color. I have stamped with gold two manis in a row now. I might need my temperature checked.
Next I want to try layering The Isabella Emerald over a darker green so I can preserve the pretty and see how a dark green base brings out that glitter.
I am so glad I was able to get this polish before it was gone. There is still some stock left but this one is so pretty I can't imagine it staying around too long.
I kept this on for two days and still didn't want to take it off. I probably wouldn't have if I had more manis in reserve to blog about. Since I didn't I had to take it off so I had stuff to post.
This is a shot with flash against part of the blanket.
I love how glitters look mattified. I would have worn this one mattified for an extra day.
