Hey There Polished People!
The polish that I used today is one that I got quite a while ago when the ChG Hunger Games/Colors From The Capitol came out. When I got it I remembered thinking it was really pretty and even though it wasn’t a color that maybe I would run out and get just based on the color alone, I was really happy to have it as part of that collection and I just thought it looked pretty nice on my skin tone. Here is my initial review of Dress Me Up. Well, I used it again recently because I thought it would be a nice neutral to wear for a few days and guess what? It looks like a bruised albino turd!!! Yuck. For whatever reason it is just, like, NOT doing anything for me now. Instead of removing it and trying something else, I really wanted it to work so I stamped over it. Well, that was kind of a disasticure. Ready to see?
Copper And Mauve Stamped Nails
How To Get These Nails:
- Paint your nails with ChG Dress Me Up.
- Apply a coat of Jessica Brilliance and allow your nails to dry thoroughly.
- When your nails are dry and hardened (we don’t want any squishing!) use Essie Penny Talk and CH50 to stamp whichever flower pattern your prefer on your nails. I think I like the first one the best…?
- Apply a final coat of Jessica Brilliance and call it macaroni! Hopefully you like your nails more than I like mine.
I kinda hated these, now that I’m looking at them again. The color was puke-tacular, the stamping didn’t cooperate very well and I just was not a fan. However, they can’t all be winners so I didn’t want to hide them away. I have had some trouble using my Essie Mirror Metallics when stamping with my Cheeky plates. I’m not sure whose fault it is (mine?) but it’s annoying. You can see that my stamping doesn’t look that great. Eh.. whatever. You win some, you lose some, right? 🙂
Let me know if you have had the same thing happen to you where you like something in the beginning and then upon second/third use you’re like, “EW!!! What was I thinking?!” I don’t know what changed but I don’t think I’ll be using this color again… we’ll see. As always, thank you all for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing!! 😀
