Happy #manimonday everyone! Let’s get into this week’s flower nails.
Stamping plate: Lina Nail Art Supplies “All Mixed Up 01”
Stamping polish: Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy “Checkmate”
Base: Essie base coat, “Blanc” and W7 Nail Polish “85 Summer Fields”
Daisy colour: Essie “Blanc” and Covergirl XL Nail Gel “Haughty Lemon”
Top coat: Opi Australia “Rapid Dry Top Coat”
On Saturday I entered the Myer Fashions on the Field competition, so of course, my nails had to match my outfit. I’ll be posting my outfit with all the details later in the month, but it was a green dress with daisy trim, hence the green nails with a daisy feature nail.
I do my nails on a Wednesday, so on Tuesday, Mum went to the shops to find me the perfect green nail polish. She found this one from the W7 brand, which is one I’ve never heard of before. It is a cheaper polish, and this was obvious as it did bubble slightly on my nails, which is something that hasn’t happened to me before, despite applying a proper top coat (not stamped on). However, it did the job and for a cheaper polish it went on quite well.
My stamping polish colour range is still quite limited too, so we also had trouble finding a polish that served as a good outline that also picked up the daisies. The Relvon Colorstay Gel Envy series is actually quite good as it has an in-built base coat, which makes it that little bit thinker and opaque and, therefore, perfect for stamping. We did have to do a few pickups but that was mostly because the flower was difficult to colour in due to the Essie “Blanc” being thick/on its way out, making it hard to paint onto the stamper and the yellow was quite running meaning it went outside the lines.
However, I absolutely love how this design turned out, haha even if it took two and a half hours.
Bye for now!
