Doug bought me two of the polishes from the Essie Mirror Metallics collection as a Thank You gift for my help with his recital… and they’re fabulous! And really great for stamping. I may need to go to the store and try to find the gold, it may finally end my quest for a functional gold stamping polish! And just in time for the holidays, too.
I started with two thick coats/three thin coats (it varied) of Wet n Wild Cougar Attack from last year’s Halloween collection. I’m not sure why it took me almost a year to actually use this polish… it’s gorgeous, and looks much better on my skin tone than I expected! I stamped it with the leopard spots from Bundle Monster Image Plate BM-221… I’m not normally one for animal prints, but it seemed appropriate. I always love how stamped images look over glitter polishes, too… so multidimensional! The stamping polish was Essie Penny Talk, a really pretty peachy copper color, and just perfect for stamping. Top coat of NYC Grand Central Station, as usual.
