Here’s a textured polish for you today. This is Sand!Which? by Dance Legend:I applied two coats of Sand!Which? and stamped over it with No Place Like Chrome by Essie and MoYou Pro XL plate 04. And no top coat to enjoy the textured finish 🙂Are you over textured polishes yet? I still like them, not as much as when the trend began but I think they’re still amazing.
Stamping? I gave that up a long time ago. I’ve seen so many amazing new plates lately and even more amazing designs created with them I thought it was time to give it another try. But not before searching for a new stamper. I’ve found an XL stamper and scraper at Hypnotic Polish and went for it. This is my first attempt after a long time so please bear with me. For my base I used one (!) coat of Rendezvous With You by China Glaze. What a fantastic polish! Not only is the formula perfect but that color! Love!
For the design I used Essie‘s No Place Like Chrome and a Sci-Fi (5) plate from MoYou, which you can also find at Hypnotic Polish. What do you think of this stamping design?
Before we jump in to Essie’s No Place Like Chrome and an easy and fun way to turn it into a big eye catcher, I like to give all the girls that have participated in the 30 day challenge a big pat on the shoulder. Great job girls! I’ve seen so much amazing works of art. Very inspiring! Lovely!
Okay, on to today’s mani: No Place Like Chrome by Essie from their Mirror Metallic Collection is a silver metallic/chrome. It’s opaque in one (slightly thicker) easy and quick drying coat, but I used two thin coats here. I advice to use a good ridgefiller before applying this because without it -as with all metallics/chromes- you’ll see every imperfection on your nails. This polish screamed for an ‘out of space’ nail art. I chose to add three different colors of foil. This is the easiest way to turn a ‘regular’ mani in to a big eye catcher! I added some splots of foil glue with a small nail art brush. After that was dry I randomly ‘dabbed’ on the foil 😀
Have you used foil for a manicure already?
