Still attempting to use my untrieds, I wanted to stamp on yesterday’s manicure with my Barry M Nail Effects Lilac Foil. I’ve tried to use this before, but couldn’t get it to stamp well, and just put it down to perhaps a dodgy image. I’ve read so many blogs where people have posted that it’s great for stamping – and that’s why I bought it in the first place.
But, once again, I had real problems with it. I couldn’t get the whole image to transfer to the stamper at all. I don’t know if it was drying too quickly, but there wasn’t a problem with the image because I tried several different ones. I think I just have to give up on Lilac Foil as a stamping polish.
So, I removed my failed attempts with a lint roller and started again. I needed something light to stamp over yesterday’s dark manicure, and knew that H&M Wine And Dine has successfully stamped for me before.
I’ve never done an animal print either, so chose Bundle Monster plate BM-223 and have ended up with quite a subtle stamping effect. I really like this.
For this manicure I’ve used:
- Base: two coats of NYC Chinatown
- Intermediate top coat 1: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip
- Intermediate top coat 2: Seche Vite
- Stamping polish: H&M Wine And Dine
- Stamping plate: Bundle Monster BM-223
- Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip
