National Nail Polish Day

Hello and welcome!  For national nail polish day, I would have loved to do some detailed, multiple polish design, but life & time said ‘no’. 

Since I didn’t have all the time in the world, this design had to be quick and painless.  So I grabbed another one of my brand new polishes from the Indie Shop, and a cute stamping plate that I hadn’t used before.  Stamping has really become my go-to for quick designs.  If you add all sorts of colors and layers it could take up a lot of time.  But if you just use one color, and don’t choose a design that needs to be exact, something you can be slightly sloppy with, then it can be pretty quick.

What I Used:

  • Base Coat:  Cuticula – Frooty Pebbles Silk Base Coat
  • 1st Color:  Nvr Enuff – Stormborn
  • 2nd Color:  Painted Polish – Stamped in Blush
  • Top Coat:  Essie – Speed Setter Top Coat
  • Maniology BM-S188 stamping plate
  • silicone stamper & scraper
  • lint roller sheet
  • Twinkled T clean up brush, size #2
  • acetone nail polish remover

I started with base coat, and then two coats of Nvr Enuff – Stormborn.  And I have to give a shoutout to the Nvr Enuff team at the Indie Shop.  They’re the reason I chose this polish for national nail polish day, and were just really kind while I was being indecisive, and trying to avoid the crowd.  Not to mention the polish itself is a fun silvery pink, and I have nothing else like it.

After that dried, I simply took a pink creme (Painted Polish – Stamped in Blush) and stamped the fun floral print on top.  And since it was such a large, looping design, I just randomly stamped without worrying about what went where.

 

And that was it!  Something so quick, easy, subtle and beautiful, how can you not love them?  And the photos may not do it justice.  But since the base is a silvery pink, and the stamp in pink, there are angles where it’s hard to see the floral pattern.  Which is just so fun to have a slight “now you see me, now you don’t” kind of design.

 

Hope everyone enjoyed their week!

Update:

Well, I don’t remember how exactly, but my ring finger chipped.  Which made me file it down a bit to keep me from destroying the actual nail.  So it’s now just a little shorter.  My thumbs chipped too, but those are always chipping, and I’m pretty used to it by now.  Sometimes I wish I could just stop myself from picking, but it’s such a bad habit that’s hard to break.
