Sunday's Stamping NOTD

Currently listening to: Joshua Radin

Good morning girls!

Sorry for the lack of posts last week, this week will be better! Here's what I'm wearing on my nails today:

The base is Graphic Berry by Dior

The butterflies weere stamped with Accessorize Magical Mocha

and I used plate 36 by Konad

Despite being impressed with Sally Hansen's Insta-Dry top coat in terms of drying time, its lasting power is ridiculously short; chips being to appear within 24 hours of applying the top coat.

Of course I'm going to stick with this top coat until I reach the end of the polish but does anyone have any recommendations for a fast-drying top coat which also lasts well??

Bye for now,


  1. It´s such a beautiful red! Gorgeous :) And I´m searching for a good quick dry TC myself, I didn´t find anything good yet. But I´m using Revlon Liquid Quick Dry, it´s like water, so it doesn´t stick to the nail like a normal TC, but it dries the polish really fast :) And as far as I can tell, there was no chipping for at least 3 days..maybe it lasts longer, but I don´t wear my polish that long :P

  2. I love this, it looks so elegant :)

  3. Ahh I love Joshua Radin! (: I also love that red- so pretty. For top coats I use the famed Seche Vite and it works very well for me (:

  4. @Theodora, thanks :-) It's a sneaky red that sometimes looks pink, sometimes red. I'm intrigued by your Revlon Liquid Quick Dry, I've never heard of anything like that. I might investigate it :-)

    @Liz, thank you!

    @Sandra, thanks :-)

    @thenailaholic, thank you!

    @Brittney, thanks! I found SV worked well for me at the beginning but then half-way through the bottle, the liquid became really stringy :-( Don't know if that was just my bottle though.

  5. Well, I was planning on doing a review on it anyways :) Maybe I will do it this week then :)

  6. Such a gorgeous polish!

  7. @Theodora, I'll look forward to reading your review

    @imfeelingnail-venturous, thanks!

  8. I use Orly Sec 'N' Dry and it's the best quick drying top coat I ever tried. First time I used it was on top of two coats of Essie Bordeaux and I kid you not, a week later and all I had was the tiniest bit of tip wear and no chips at all! It dries fast, isn't gloopy, and it's very, VERY glossy. Perfect!


Reading your comments makes my day, leave me one to have your say :-)
