So I'm still rocking the Shellac/Gelish combo but I removed the stamping. I added one coat of China Glaze Ruby Pumps and although I couldn't quite capture it here, it looks amazing! The green sparkle underneath adds crazy depth to it and I love it. What I don't love is that this solitary coat of Ruby Pumps ate top coat like you wouldn't believe!
So I added a stamp to it. I used image plate BM209. I also tried 4 different black polishes with this image and the only one that actually picked up the whole image properly was my good old Konad Black. I guess sometimes there is really no substitute. I was having a love/hate relationship with this mani. Sometimes when I looked at it I was reminded of Spiderman and then I didn't love it so much.
So just to avoid any confusion I figured a heart shaped stamp would confirm that this was definitely NOT a Spiderman manicure. I used Color Club's Antiquated from the new Foiled collection and konad plate m18. Maybe I should have saved this one for Valentine's Day?
