Guest Post: Marianne's Manhattan Stamped NOTD!

Good morning dear readers!

Today I have a fabulous guest post for you from the wonderful Marianne at Rainbowify Me.  Marianne always has great swatches of brands I've never heard of before and often adds pretty glitters and nail art to her manicures.  Let's see which polish she's going to reveal to us today!

Manhattan ~ 45N
Berry red packed with shimmer

When Laura asked me if I was interested in writing a guest post, I didn't hesitate to say yes.  In fact, I was super excited to be given the opportunity.  It is indeed my very first guest post, and I must say that I'm extremely happy to be writing it here on Laura's blog.

Anyway - the big question was:  What to do?

I decided to go for a polish that you don't see everywhere around the net.  I chose a Manhattan product with the number 45N.  It's a berry red polish packed with shimmer, and it's opaque in one coat.  I gave it two coats to be sure to show this polish from its best side, but one would easily have been enough.  I'm not wearing a top coat in the pic:

Manhattan is a German brand, and I bought this polish on vacation in Berlin.  If you ever get the chance to get your hands on some Manhattan polishes, you definitely should.  They're cheap, they're great quality and they come in a big range of colours!

Those of you who happen to read my blog know that I can never just leave a mani like that.  I wanted to stamp on it!

I chose a flower design from an Essence plate (they don't have numbers for some reason) and stamped one white flower and one silver flower on each nail.  The thumbs had two white flowers and one silver. :)  I used Konad's white stamping polish and Essence "Stamp me! Silver" stampy polish.

Here's what that looked like, all sealed up with a layer of Poshé top coat:

After that I found an iridescent glitter from Jesse's Girl called "Opal Glitter" and gave the whole thing a layer of that, just to shine it up a bit more!

So, what do you think?  I'm quite pleased with it myself.

Once again I want to thank Laura for this opportunity to write a guest post for her blog.  It's a real honour!! ;)

  Thank you Marianne!  I really enjoyed your first guest post and I'm sure everyone else did too  :-)  Your floral design is so pretty and I love the extra sparkle you added!

What did you think of Marianne's manicure girls?  Be sure to let her know when you visit her blog!

Bye for now,

    And for the rest of you: I really hope you like it. :)

  2. Super cute stamps. It's great to try something no one else has.

  3. It's really sweet and cute - well stamped :)
