Hey There Polished People!
So I know parents aren’t supposed to have favorite kids, I mean, I know I’m my mom’s favorite but you know, OTHER parents can’t have favorites And teachers aren’t supposed to have favorite students. Let me tell you from first-hand experience- that’s a lie. I totally have my favorites, it’s just natural. You know what it’s totally okay to have favorites of though? NAIL POLISHES!! Their feelings aren’t going to get hurt and they don’t care who is “favorite.” They’re inanimate objects! They don’t have feelings! Just don’t try to convince me the same is true about stuffed animals cuz I used to give each of them a turn under the covers with me because I was SURE they got jealous and would be sad if I always favored Pinkie (my favorite, shhh). I think my favorite nail polish just might be Cult Nails Clairvoyant. I haven’t bought much from Cult recently, but the Superpowers Collection was one of my favorite purchases and I remember feeling just so SPECIAL when I got my hands on Clairvoyant. Do you know people are trying to sell it for $120 on eBay?? I’m sorry but if you spend $120 bucks on a nails polish, you better be contributing like $12,000+ to charity each year. Anyway, I was really excited to get it because it was one of the first “flaky” polishes when flakies were HUGE last year, and since I know people try to sell it for so much I feel special that I have it in my collection. I broke it out recently and put it to use. Ready to see what I did with it?
Stars Made Of Stars
- Use your base coat. I use SH Hard As Nails.
- Paint your nails with FP Black Expressionism.
- Apply one coat of Cult Nails Clairvoyant.
- Apply a coat of Seche Vite and allow your nails to dry thoroughly.
- Using plate CH 53 and Essie No Place Like Chrome stamp the star made out of stars design on each nail near the cuticle.
- When all of your nails are stamped, apply a final, careful coat of Seche Vite.
Can I just bring some attention to this awesome stamp??? I LOVE stars and this is stars… IN THE SHAPE OF A STAR!! I just love it. Something I really do need (okay, want really really really bad) is more star stamping plates. Surprisingly enough, I don’t have that many!! And stars are my FAVORITE!! Anyway, what is your favorite or most prized polish in your collection? Thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!!
*disclaimer- yes these pictures suck. I was busy all day and really wanted to change my polish that night, so I ended up taking the pictures as it got dark and… it was in my truck, if I’m remembering correctly, so… sorry
