Philly Loves Lacquer recently listed some limited edition polishes in her online shop, that she made for various craft fairs in the area. I had to purchase The Porch! (In reference to The Porch at 30th Street). I have a huge weakness for aqua polishes. The Porch is a bright cream turquoise scattered holographic polish, with gold shimmer.
The formula was a bit sheer so I did 4 thin coats. You could probably stop at 3 coats though in real life. My lights are bright when I take photos. Four coats worked for me, so I didn't have any visible nail line showing. I used Seche Vite topcoat. I wish the sun had been out the day I swatched this, I wanted to get some holographic sun shots for you all! (Another time maybe.) The color is so divine though... *drools*
The Born Pretty Store recently sent me some products for review. A stamping plate [QA83], water decals, and lace nail stickers.
Check out the look I created with the lace nail stickers after the jump below!
I LOVE the Lace Nail Stickers. I actually want to order more of these. They were really easy to apply. You cut the lace off the plastic sheet into the size you want- then carefully scrape up the edge of the sticker with your nail or a dotting tool. I found touching the sticker to my skin first (to make it less tacky), helped it be more manageable. By doing that, I was able to quickly re-align the sticker if it wasn't quite lined up right (without messing my polish up). They give you the same look as stamping, without the mess. After I applied the stickers, I sealed them with Seche Vite topcoat. Love, love, love these!
Edited to add: How in the world did I not see I have the lace flipped the wrong way on my index nail until now? Oh well.... lol. I must have been sleeping! :-p
I also tried out the Water Decals, but it being my first time with application, it was a bit tricky. I want to cut the designs out better next time, so I'll have another post on these sometime. They are pretty much like temporary tattoos, just for your nails! Here's a macro of my pinky nail with the silver water decals.
