#31dc2017weekly – Week 04 (Green)

I’ve been so busy this past week and a half that I completely forgot to post my green nails for #31dc2017weekly! So I’ll be posting them now (better so, so late than never, right?) and then Week 05 won’t be too far behind.

Omgoodness would you just look at that. This is I Need Vitamin Sea by Powder Perfect and she’s a beautiful sea foam green polish filled with purple to pink iridescent glass fleck shimmer, holographic shimmer, and holographic and sterling silver flake.  Just writing that out is making my mouth water. Now I kinda get why Dianna wants to lick every third polish she swatches. 

That’s some nice shit right there. 

No nail art this time because I’m in the middle of some serious swatching and I took this off to continue before I even knew what I was doing. 

Thanks for stopping by! ‘Till next time 💋

#31dc2017weekly – Week 03 (Yellow)

It’s been such a gorgeous week! The sun hasn’t missed a day yet, so what better timing than to show off a nice yellow polish, eh?


Fuzzy Sweater from Pretty and Polished:

This is from their 2016 fall collection. It’s not exactly a sunny yellow – it would best fall under the “leprechaun undies” category, probably  – but it’s stunning regardless of what you want to call it. 

And. Those. FLAKIES. Mmm, girl. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ll be back soon!

In the meantime, gimme a follow on Instagram

#31dc2017weekly – Week 02 (Orange)

Orange has never been a favorite color of mine. Growing up (in my teens) with a 70’s-style bathroom in the 21st century might’ve had something to do with it. My sink was orange and my toilet was green. There was carpet. Rainbow shag carpet. It sounds pretty cool, and maybe the carpet was, but the rest of it was definitely not. Add in the brown panelled walls you couldn’t paint and normal teenage angst and you’ve got yourself a fine recipe for depression. I only just climbed out of it in late 2016.

I do, however, have an orange polish in my collection of hardly any orange that gives me a bit of life. It was the only orange I could see myself using for this prompt. 

Go-Around by By-K

Go-Around is a vibrant bronze-y burnt orange that is completely opaque in one coat. I did a little nail art, as well. I think I’m getting the hang of this stamping thing. 

The inspiration for this nail art was A Clockwork Orange, even though I tried watching the movie two years ago and I don’t think cogs and wheels had anything to do with it. But it might have. 

That’s it for this week! Keep your eyes peeled for Week 03 (next Sunday)! I hope to also have a review up for Nailed It! Nail Polish’s newest collection NYASP (Not Your Average St. Patty) in the next day or two. 

#31dc2017weekly – Week 01 (Red Nails)

Evening, lovelies! I never did finish the original 31 Day (nail art) Challenge back in September. I believe I made it to day 10 on Instagram, but I’m not entirely sure without looking. I know I only made blog posts up to day 06. 

Last night I came across the challenge again, only this time it was presented as a weekly challenge instead of a daily challenge – though it is still called the 31 Day Challenge. I thought to myself, “if I can’t manage one nail art a week, I’m a loser”. Also, it will promise a blog post a week, and this blog needs a little help in that department. Challenge accepted!

The prompt for the first week is ‘red nails’. I picked an untried bought from an Instagram user I’d been wanting to swatch for forever now – Sticky Sweet Candy Apples by Heather’s Hues. It’s my first and only HH polish. I’ve just now found out that Heather sells minis, too, (in 7.5 ml no less!), so I feel a haul is in order in my near future. I need more Heather’s Hues!

Take a look at this beauty:

Sticky Sweet Candy Apples is a squishy red jelly sprinkled with red, gold, and bronze multichrome flakes and clear holo microglitters. I used three coats for this swatch. There wasn’t any gooey build-up between layers; each coat dried relatively fast for a jelly and the next coat went on like buttah. I’m a fan!

Some macros for ya:

Okay, I really want to eat that. 

I tried a little nail art next, and while it isn’t my favorite nail art (I swear I’m colorblind), it’ll do. I’m not a fan of starting over.

People make vinyls look so easy. Vinyls are not easy. 

So that’s it for week 01 of the 31 Day Challenge (Weekly!)! I’ll see you guys again for week 02 unless I see you before that. I have a 3-day weekend so there really isn’t any excuses. But I’m sure I’ll come up with one.

If you love the look of Sticky Sweet Candy Apples and want a bottle for yourself, you can find it right HERE. A full-size bottle at 15mL is $9.00 and the mini-size (7.5mL) is $5.75.

February Ipsy Review

I have to ask, not that y’all would know, but where in the world was my motivation yesterday?? I took off work and all I did was take two 4-5 hour long naps. I mean, I probably really needed them, but that doesn’t make me feel any better about it. I didn’t paint my nails even once!

This is my third month as an Ipsy subscriber and my first post regarding something other than nail polish. I hope it isn’t a concern for you guys that I plan on reviewing some makeup items as well…I figure that if you love nail polish, you probably love makeup, too. Is that ignorant of me? Prolly. 

If you don’t know what Ipsy is, it’s a beauty subscription service where each month you receive a “glam bag” containing four to five items ranging from sample to deluxe sample-sized (and sometimes even full-sized!). The service costs only $10 a month (an extra $5 if you ship to Canada), and that to me is an inexpensive way to try various products without having to shell out too much cash. 

Every month I receive both Ipsy and Play! by Sephora and in my opinion one is on par with the other when it comes to the products I get. Ipsy is more catered to the individual, I think, even though you have a profile for both services. Ipsy is supposed to continue to evolve over time to better fit your wants and/or needs the more you review the products you receive and as you update your profile as needed (say, if you want to receive less foundation samples, you can always deselect [and reselect] the foundation option in your profile). Play! by Sephora has a few by the box variations each month, but that’s about it as far as I know. 

For the month of February, four out of the five products were full-sized! February’s glam bag is denim with an orange trim and zipper tag in the shape of lips. I’m not a huge fan of denim (or the color orange for that matter) but I really like this bag! I’ve found ways to re-purpose all of my glam bags thus far, but I haven’t decided what I’ll do with this one yet. I may use it to store some of my planner/bullet journal bits and bobs. I just picked up a load of cute things from Burke’s the other day, and a haul post is in the works. BOLO. 



Anyway, onto the products themselves! I was happy with everything I got this month, and judging from the other Ipsy unboxing posts I’ve read, I wasn’t the only one! 

The Biobelle face masks and the Luxie brush were too big to fit inside the bag! Let us take a moment of awe-filled silence. Ipsy, this is the kind of bag we love to see. Keep up the fantastic work!


Biobelle™ Botanic Fiber Facial Mask in #iwokeuplikethis and #staygorgeous ($4.99)



I love facial masks! I tried my first mask around two months ago. I remember it being super wet and the serum leaking down my neck and pooling up in my cleavage, but hey, it was so easy to use. These Biobelle masks are no different (albeit not as wet, thankfully). I used the #iwokeuplikethis one last week, which claims to enhance the skin’s natural glow, and loved the way my skin looked and felt afterward. Tonight I am due for another face mask and I can’t wait! Biobelle masks are parabens, gluten and GMO free. 

NYX Butter Lipstick in Ripe Berry ($6)



I was excited to find a full-sized lipstick in this month’s glam bag! I own a couple of matte shades from NYX, and to be honest, I’m tired of matte lips, so I was thrilled this wasn’t matte! While I’ve received a lot of shades similar to this one this season, it’s still a gorgeous color. It’s very pigmented and very creamy (buttery?). You don’t need to put a lip balm on before you apply this, as it’s super moisturizing all by itself. It’s not anything-proof, though, so don’t forget to carry it with you for touch-ups. 


Luna Highlighter in Calypso ($23)



Another full-sized product! This highlighter is a little grey if you pack on too much, but with a light hand it provides a very sophisticated glow. I wear this highlighter every time I want a highlight. I apply it to my cheekbones, the bridge and tip of my nose, and my cupid’s bow with a small angled brush. It has a pretty outstanding glow, so I usually tone it down with a bit of setting powder. 




Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Blush Brush 514 ($18)


My first brush from Luxie Beauty! I did read that others believed this brush to be too small to be used for blush, but that’s what I’ve been using it for. I’m in love with it! The bristles are some of the softest I’ve ever felt. It doesn’t pick up too much product at once, which a girl can be thankful for. Because of the price tag, though, I wouldn’t purchase this with my own money (unless I found it super cheap at TJ Maxx, where I usually buy my makeup brushes). Luxie Beauty brushes are cruelty-free and vegan with synthetic bristles. 



Elizabeth Mott Whatup Beaches Matte Bronzer (Full Size: $25 – Sample Size: $2.18)



This bronzer/contour is a medium cool-toned matte brown shade. The formula is soft and extremely buildable, but what’s up with the size of that pan? You can’t even fit a brush in there (but you can fit a penny)! This sample was disappointing for me. It will probably be used as an eyeshadow. 



That’s everything, guys! This month’s value came out to be $59.16, which means I received a little under $50 worth of absolutely free stuff!

Let me know if you enjoyed this post and would like to see more in the future! I’d be glad to share my Play! by Sephora boxes, too!


Until next time!

Nailed It! Nail Polish –  Conversation Hearts Collection 

Hiya! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m hoping to dive right back into blogging from here. While things haven’t exactly calmed down too much at work just yet, there is a possibility that in a good month from now I’ll be back on a more regular schedule. Fingers super-double crossed!

So what’s new with me? I started a bullet journal (bujo for short) at the beginning of January and I’m crazy in love with the system! I bought a Recollections planner from Michaels before the New Year and while I still have that and utilize it (somewhat), the bullet journal is where it’s at for me! I’m currently using a cheap grid composition notebook, but I’m looking forward to upgrading to a Leuchtturm notebook when this one is filled up! So while we wait patiently for that to happen and for my work schedule to take about twenty chill pills, let’s take a look at some pretty nail polish!

I’ll admit, at first I didn’t know what a “conversation heart” was. Did I skip childhood? Didn’t we all receive crazy amounts of Brach’s conversation hearts on Valentine’s Day back in elementary school? Yes, yes we did. And today I have the Conversation Hearts collection from Nailed It! Nail Polish to share with you. This collection (available now) consists of four polishes, all of which apply as smooth as a goat’s teet and are opaque in two coats. Now onto the swatches!

First up is XOXO, a red-leaning hot pink scattered holo. What a start to the collection, eh? The sparkle in this bad boy is unreal!

I did a thing:

Oooh, look who’s sexy! I’m not the happiest with my macros but we’ll work on that. 

This perfect baby pink is Let’s Kiss. Upon seeing the initial release photos, I thought XOXO and Let’s Kiss looked very similar to one another, but they’re actually shades apart.

And of course, the sub-par macro:

Did I mention these all apply in two smooth, buttery coats? Tia absolutely knocked it out of the park with the formula on these!

The next one is called Be Mine, and it’s probably my favorite one out of all of them. To me it seemed a little more chunky than the others, but it still applied completely opaque in two coats and only needed one coating of top coat to be smooth to the touch. So I don’t know, it might have been my imagination. Regardless, it’s formula is obviously just as perfect as the others’. 

Who’s never not ready for their close-up?

The last one is called Me & You and was hands-down the most popular swatch on my instagram. There were over 300 views on the #videoswatch whereas the others in the collection only received around 50! We love the classic silver holo, don’t we? This one is no exception to some of the best out there. This macro proves it:

You’d be lying if you said you didn’t want that. That’s classy stuff right there. 

If you love glitter polishes and want all the sparkle without the scratchy textures, 3 billion + coats (without the use of a makeup sponge), and difficult removal processes, this entire collection is just for you! I was super impressed with the formula and easy application of these, and would highly recommend them. Single polishes are $8.50 and the entire collection will only set you back $30. 

Thanks for stopping by, guys, and I’m sorry for stepping away for so long! I also want to thank you all for still being here when I came back. It means the world to me!

And if you haven’t done so yet, please give me a follow on Instagram! When I reach 1k I will have a pretty large giveaway (that I’m adding to all the time), so you don’t want to miss out on it!

Bye for now!

Christmas Nails

I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy Christmas! I hope you all had a joyous weekend spent with your friends and family – not at work. For those of us less fortunate, well, there’s always nails to paint lol

For this festive nail art I used a couple of my new Glam Polishes as well as an old goodie – Shores of Paradise by Aliquid Lacquer – for the “ornaments”. I loved how these turned out!

Anyone receive anything good this year for Christmas? I got a new planner I’m just dying to start using!

Indie, Indeed! Nailed It! Nail Polish – Eat. Shop. Love. Collection Swatch and Review

Disclaimer: I received these products at a discount and a review on my blog was not required. 

Hey, guys! You’ll be glad to know I’m not dead. I’m not gonna go into any boring details on why I’ve been absent from posting, just that there were some issues with WordPress (or my phone’s memory, whatev) that actually prevented me from doing so and as a result I lost my entire storage of inspiration for a while. Quite a while. 

But I’m back today, and with a brand new collection from Nailed It! to share with you guys. Tia sent me a bloggers discount code and allowed me to choose whatever my polish lovin’ heart desired from her store. Naturally, I bought her newest collection (before the Christmas collections were released) – the Eat. Shop. Love. Collection – which consists of five polishes all full of shimmery, flakie goodness. I promise you’ll want to see these! 

This first one is “Shop Till You Drop”, which is described as. It was opaque in two coats and I added a glossy top coat for extra shine. 

None of these swatches would be complete without a macro:

See what I mean? Tia did such an amazing job with these colors! From a distance “Shop Till You Drop” appears more subdued and dainty, but then you get close and BAM. Magic. 


  
Next is “Family Affair”, which is described as. It was completely opaque for me in two coats. As with the previous swatch, “Family Affair” also appears pretty subdued until…

BAM again. More magic. I’m sorry, did I startle you? The flakies in these polishes are just so guhhh-inducing and they compliment their bases extremely well. I know you’re agreeing with me right now. 

This next one is called “Black Friday”, described as. The flakies in this one are a lot more subtle to the naked eye than I expected them to be – they’re sort of difficult to see, especially in lower lighting – but that doesn’t make this polish any less amazingcapturing all the colors of the rainbow before bed-time. 

Check this:

Rainbow over black has never been so darn fancy! 

Next up is “Cyber Monday”, described as. This one was probably my favorite of the whole collection. With the base being a lighter shade, all of those little shards of magic were fully exposed. It was more on the sheer side than the others, and took me three coats for full opacity. 

Mandatory Macro:

Uuuuunnghh. That’s all I got. 

The last polish in this collection is called “Bring the Bubbly”, described as. This is the perfect color for an evening of champagne-poppin’ at an intimate event or for martinis on New Years Eve in New York. Those are the repeating images in my head, anyway. I say pair it with a little black dress and some sling-backs and take the night by storm. Thank me later. 

Aaaand, the macro:

That does it for the Eat. Shop. Love. Collection! If any of these caught your fancy, they’re all still up for grabs in Tia’s shop. The entire collection is $36.00, or you can buy them individually for $8 a bottle. 

I hope you enjoyed this post! I’ll have more heading your way soon, along with a few not-nail-polish-related posts, but still beauty-related nonetheless. We’re all ladies, here (shoutout to any men reading this, too); we love anything beauty-related! So I hope that’s okay with everyone. 

Thanks again for dropping in! Until next time!

Pretty & Polished 2016 Fall Collection Swatch/Review

Hello, my pretties (I feel like I should just call all y’all “Clarice” while I’m at it – any ideas for a less creepy intro? Anything at all?). Anyway, today I have the entire 2016 Fall Collection from Pretty and Polished (P&P) to share with you guys. Let me just preface this whole thing by saying they’re all freakin’ ah-maz-ing. Seriously, you won’t feel like you’ve wasted your time looking at these fab swatches haha (toot, toot).

 

I actually won this collection through a giveaway on Instagram hosted by @killakays_nailadventures (if you’re not already following her you need to…she’s awesome! You can also find her blog here). I was so absolutely stoked when I saw I had won that I might’ve clapped and screamed and developed the shakes. It’s probably a good thing the inside of my truck doesn’t have the emotional capabilities to judge a person.

 

Let’s dive right into the swatches, shall we?

Patch by Pretty and Polished

Patch by Pretty and Polished

 

Isn’t she a beauty? This is Patch, already a fan favorite and it’s easy to see why! Patch is one of the newest additions to the Dusty Cremes P&P is well known for. I own a couple  Dusty Cremes from a previous purchase and I’m a huge fan of them! I was so excited to find out there were two new Dusty Cremes being released with this collection. They’re so wearable it’s almost a sham and Patch is no exception. This swatch shows two easy coats with glossy top coat and again with a matte top coat. You can buy Patch right here!

Creme de la Creme by Pretty and Polished

Creme de la Creme by Pretty and Polished

 

Next up is Creme De La Creme, the second and last Dusty Creme in the collection. This is a parchment-colored nude (the website describes it as off-white sandy dusty) that is wearable with anything and is 100% work approved! The fact that it’s a Dusty Creme gives it that extra pizzazz that makes it much more fun to wear than your average, every day nude. This swatch shows two easy coats with glossy top coat and again with a matte top coat. You can purchase Creme de la Creme right here!

 

img_20160927_125525
Fuzzy Sweater by Pretty and Polished
img_20160927_163204
Fuzzy Sweater by Pretty and Polished

 

This next one is called Fuzzy Sweater and it’s my favorite out of the whole collection! The website described it as an offbeat mustard yellow creme packed with color shifting flakes. I knew when I first saw a swatch of this color that I was going to adore it. I mean. Look. At. Dem. Flakies. Mustard yellow has never looked so good, ya’ll. This swatch shows two easy coats with glossy top coat and again with a matte top coat. If you love Fuzzy Sweater as much as I do, buy it here!

I Done Plum Had It! by Pretty and Polished

I Done Plum Had It! by Pretty and Polished

 

I Done Plum Had It! is a bright purple/magenta creme with copper flakies. I can see this color worn with a grey pea coat and a nice pair of heeled boots! This swatch shows two easy coats with glossy top coat and again with a matte top coat. You can purchase I Done Plum Had It! here!

 

img_20160926_101338
Riverside Drive by Pretty and Polished

Riverside Drive by Pretty and Polished

 

Riverside Drive is a unique deep blue creme with blue and silver flakies (the same color as my lips on these 40 degree mornings that came from Outofnowhere…minus the flakies). This swatch shows two easy coats with glossy top coat and again with a matte top coat. Riverside Drive can be purchased here!

 

img_20160929_194505
Dark Magic by Pretty and Polished
picsart_09-30-01-31-17
Dark Magic by Pretty and Polished

 

This is Dark Magic – just look at that scattered holo! This is a dark grey/almost black crelly with holographic and metallic glitters. The purple glitter pops even more under a matte coat! This polish dries textured, so a glossy top coat is needed for a smooth, shiny surface. This swatch shows two easy coats with glossy top coat and again with a matte top coat. Buy a bottle of Dark Magic here!

 

img_20160926_165917
Taupe Me Off and Leaf! by Pretty and Polished

Taupe Me Off and Leaf! is a taupe crelly polish packed with metallic glitters in gold, brown, copper, bronze, and orange (from the website). I don’t have a picture with a matte top coat added (I don’t know why I don’t), but if you’re curious you can see the image on Killa Kay’s blog. This polish took three coats for full opacity. You can buy Taupe Me Off and Leaf! right here!

 

img_20160927_143756
Heavy Metal by Pretty and Polished

Heavy Metal, while pretty, is the oddball of the collection to me. The name doesn’t really fit the theme but I’m sure Chelsea had a good reason for this metallic beauty!  It has a silver metallic base and is packed with metallic glitters and color shifting flakes (from the website). There is a green shift hidden somewhere in this polish but I was never able to find it! Instagram user and blogger @dsetterfield74 (aka “Snacks On Rotation“) was able to capture it perfectly and you can view it either on her blog or on her insta. I didn’t include the photo with a matte top coat added, because my amateur lighting setup didn’t lend much of a difference between the two haha. Buy Heavy Metal here!

 

img_20160928_162108
Lavendarling by Pretty and Polished
img_20160928_162402
Lavendarling by Pretty and Polished

 

Lavendarling is a holographic lavender color changing nail polish that is pink when room temperature or warmer and will turn to a blue/purple when cold (from website). It has gorgeous pink and blue flakes in it. This polish was an absolute biatch to capture the color change it changed so fast. I even had my husband in on it to hold a cold rag to my nails while I had the camera ready, and this was the best I could manage! This swatch shows two coats. You can purchase Lavendarling here!

 

 

Fall in Love a Latte is a brown to cream color changing polish that changes colors when it gets warm. This one was a breeze to work with after the Lavendarling fiasco haha. The color transitioned very smoothly and I had ample time to take photos before it would change back. This swatch shows three coats. Buy Fall In Love a Latte right here!

Fall In Love a Latte by Pretty and Polished

That’s a wrap, guys! I hope you enjoyed these polishes as much as I enjoyed swatching them. Pretty and Polished is hands-down one of my favorite indie nail polish brands and I’m so grateful I was able to get my hands on a full collection of hers!

 

Which one of these was your favorite?

 

Thanks for reading! Until next time!

Born Pretty Store – Clear Silicone Jelly Stamper Review

Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post, however I did receive a sample free of charge for my honest review. All opinions herein are those of my own and were not influenced in any way.

Born Pretty Store Clear Silicone Jelly Stamper and Mini Scrapers

 

Hey, guys! First is first – I know I’ve been M.I.A. for about a month! If you’ve read my blog update then you know why, but if you haven’t and you want to, you may read it here. I hate to call the Support Team of WordPress out, but this last experience I had with them was horrible and disappointing. My “happiness engineer” had went dark all of a sudden (she wasn’t responding to my messages asking for an update on the sich) and I had to find out about their three week “support break” the hard way by googling an email address so I could contact the developers directly, where I learned that nobody would be in contact with me until said “break” was over. Now that they’re back in action, I’ve learned there is no way of fixing my issue – my phone will not allow it, I guess! So, until I buy a new device on the 15th, I’ll be posting from my laptop. It’ll be fine. Now, onto the review!

 

Today I’m here to talk about my new Clear Silicone Jelly Stamper sent to me by Born Pretty Store for review. I’ve only owned one other stamper from Bundle Monster (BM) – the Semi Squishy Silicone Mega Stamper – and its effectiveness has always been a hit or miss. For the price of it (less than $10) and for a beginner I would say it’s a fair product, but there are certainly better options out there, much like the stamper I’m here to review today (and it’s cheaper than the one from BM, too)!

 

For my first collaboration with Born Pretty Store (BPS), I was allowed to choose the items I wanted to review with a max cap of $10. This was fairly easy, as most of you may know, BPS is an affordable site and very budget friendly. I knew I wanted a stamper since the luck I was having with the one from BM had me only reaching for it only when needed, and I knew the stamping experience could be much better. The price of the stamper I received from BPS is a fraction of the price for the stamper from BM; in fact, I was able to get three other items on top of the BPS stamper for the price of the BM stamper. Nice, right? I mean, it can’t really get much better than that!

 

My package took all of four weeks to reach me but that was expected. My items came in a plain white envelope and each item was in its own plastic wrapping. Everything was in perfect condition! I wasn’t expecting there to be damage as I didn’t order anything particularly fragile, but it was a good feeling to see everything I’d chosen laid out on my bed in pristine condition.

 

The stamper came with two mini scrapers – they’re so cute! I was skeptical of their size at first, but they performed flawlessly. There were a few times I used the shorter end of the card when I should have used the lengthier end and nail polish would pool up at the sides, making it difficult to transfer the image to the stamper without getting nail polish everywhere, but it was simply a learning curve. I compared them to the scrapers I received with my stamper from BM and they’re roughly half the size.

 

img_20160909_083434
Bundle Monster Semi Squishy Silicone Mega Stamper Scraper VS. Born Pretty Store Clear Silicone Jelly Stamper Scraper

 

The stamper itself is clear from top to bottom and resembles a monocle (though ineffective as one). It stands at only a few inches, which makes it even easier to position the image exactly where you want it with the most control. It was the greatest feeling in the world being able to transfer a symmetrical image onto my nail from this stamper; I was never able to get it positioned just right with the other stamper. I like easy. Don’t you like easy? Most people like easy.

 

Below are a few samples I made using this stamper and a simple black nail polish I bought from Dollar General – Broadway Nails in Black Out – it stamps perfectly and it’s only a dollar so seriously, WHY AREN’T YOU AT DOLLAR GENERAL RIGHT NOW BUYING THE WHOLE LOT OF THEM? Achem. Sorry about that. I get really passionate when it comes to perfect black polishes that are cheaper than your daily soda. Did I mention that it’s deathly black and opaque in only one coat? OMG WHY ARE YOU STILL SAT IN FRONT OF THE COMPUTER RIGHT NOW?

 

 

That’s beautiful, right? Not in the way that Mona Lisa is beautiful, or even the screaming man (my non-educated deduction of “The Scream” is that the man is actually an alien – face it, he looks like an alien – who’s just landed on our planet probably right on the outskirts of New York City and is woefully regretting his decision to visit), but beautiful in a way only nail fanatics can understand. Look at that little robot? He’s sofa-king adorable I can’t even stand it.

 

Here is the mani I completed using my clear silicone jelly stamper and the stamping plate “Robot Design” Harunouta (Haru No Uta?) L004 (ID=30335):

“Metal Me This” by Promise Polish stamped with “Black Out” by Broadway Nails – Stamping Plate “Robot Design” Harunouta (Haru No Uta?) L004 (ID=30335)

 

I’m VERY happy with the Clear Silicone Jelly Stamper from BPS and would strongly recommend it to anyone looking for their first (or fifth!) stamper. I was able to use this stamper right out of its packaging (it didn’t require any priming or anything) and I’ve been extremely pleased with my results!
