Saturday's Shooting Stars NOTD

Currently listening to: Video Games by Lana Del Ray

Good evening ladies!

Following the success of my previous manicure, I decided to do another one using Barry M Pink Irridescent :-) Here's what I started with:


I started with Essence Very Berry and layered Pink Irridescent over it.

I liked this so much I even decided it would be appropriate for work ;-)

The only problem was that I had a lot of tip wear after less than a day so I stamped a Bundle Monster star image over it using Barry M Foil Effects in silver:

The stamping worked better on some nails than on others but oh well. I find that unless I use a topcoat over my stamping, the stamping gradually rubs off during the day. When I stamped I couldn't be bothered with the smell of China Glaze Fast Forward so I simply layered another layer of glitter on top to protect the stamping :-)

What do you think girls?

Bye for now,
Laura

  1. I love it! Very pretty, and yes, stamps do rub off unless you add a coat of top coat or something on top :)

    1. Thank you :-) It's so annoying when stamps rub off and your nails just end up looking a mess!

  3. Essence and Barry M reminds me of a Color Club I have. Ultra Astral, from the Starry Temptress collection. I like it. :)

  4. Love the combo with stamping - I have the same problem with the stamping rubbing off but it means that if I stuff it up I can try to pick it off :)
