Simple mani and an awesome find
This is 2 coats of Essie's Sand Tropez which I picked up for half price during my last trip to the US. Not my usual type of colour but I don't mind it. I like Essie's formula but I don't know how they justify the $9 price tag.
I stamped it with Sally Hansen Salon Manicure in Bittersweet and konad plate m31. Finished off with an orange gem on the ring finger. Simple and classy, just the way I like it.
So a couple weeks ago when I was polish hunting in a nearby city I went to 3 different Winners and came up empty handed! Ugh I hate how Winners is like that. But I stopped at my local Winners last week and found these awesome Kleancolor sets:
Top set is a metallic set containing: Metallic Pink, Metallic Yellow, Metallic Purple, Metallic Jungle, Metallic Navy, Metallic Brown.
I swatched them as soon as I got home over my existing mani:
This was one coat of each over an almost black polish so you can see how amazing these are for stamping.
The second kit contained glitters: Black Out, VIP, Kiss Goodbye, Grand Finale, Karat and Peaceful Heart.
I didn't swatch Peaceful Heart since I already have the full size bottle but the thumb is Black Out and the rest (L-R) are: VIP, Kiss Goodbye, Carat and Grand Finale. I don't like the strip glitter at all but I love that Carat has large diamond glitter in it.
These sets were $5 at Winners and I think I'm going back to grab another metallic set. Also I need to find somewhere that sells Kleancolor here in Canada because I really need a full size bottle of Black Out!
