Barry M Bright Purple stamped with Essie Nothing Else Metals
Stamping is a great way to use my untried polishes. This time I’ve stamped with Essie Nothing Else Metals, which I bought from a local branch of The Original Factory Shop for just £1. Bargain, eh? Especially as I knew that it – like the rest of the Essie Mirror Metallics collection – was supposed to be great for stamping.
I’ve stamped using one of the Gals plates, GA3, which is from the Princess set. The image is a touch too short for my nails and the half moon gap from the image is visible at my tips. I didn’t realise my nails were quite that long.
Nothing Else Metals is a lilac metallic polish that stamped beautifully. Unfortunately, my non-dominant hand (this one, the left one) isn’t usually my best with stamping. I seem to do far better on my right hand. But that hand just doesn’t want to play for photos; my fingers don’t align very well and it just looks awkward. So you’ll have to put up with my less than best efforts that show up stamped shadows (on the ring finger) and a missing bit that I hand to fill in by hand (on my little finger).
