Stamping with Carbonite
This is 2 coats of OPI's Stranger Tides. I found this one in a clearance basket a few weeks ago. This is one reason why I usually refuse to buy new OPI collections when they first come out. The shades I want always end up in the clearance bin eventually. It's awesome that I love the unpopular colours!
Sorry this is a really shitty photo but it's a small US haul I had a few weeks ago. I found Revlon Carbonite at Meijer but I didn't realize at the time that it's a dupe for Chanel Graphite. It was $4 in a display on its own and I thought it looked pretty unique. Also I'm probably the last blogger on the planet to buy Revlon's Royal. I eye it up every time I'm out shopping but I've never seen it cheaper than $6 here in Canada. Next up is Studio M's Sweet Dreams - I was on a hunt for purple cremes and picked up Sinful's Verbena on the far right as well. The LA Colors polish is Aqua Crystals (glitter) found at the Dollar Tree. Lastly, I finally found Sinful's San Francisco at Walgreens. I've been looking for that colour forever. Pretty small haul overall.
So as soon as I got home I broke out Revlon Carbonite because I knew the colour would look awesome with Stranger Tides. I used plate BM207 and aligned the stripes straight across instead of diagonally as the image was intended. I thought it was decent. I don't mind the loud patterns when the colours are subtle.
