This will be the first of two posts today, since I never got around to posting yesterday's mani >.< Yeah, time got away from me, and before I knew it, it was bedtime! /fail
So, over the weekend, I managed to make a Sally's run, and lo, I spotted the China Glaze neons. Even though they haven't been out long, the display was already picked over, BUT I found the one color I truly wanted from that collection: Ride the Waves. RTW is an interesting polish. First and foremost, it's a blue jelly. Second, even though it's a jelly, it dries to an almost matte finish, which brings me to third, it feels like plastic once it is dry. Let me tell, it's a royal bitch to take off with normal polish remover. I highly recommend using acetone to take this one off.
Just very recently, I joined a group on FaceBook for nail stamping. Very nice people in this group, and some very talented people! It had gotten me inspired to do some stamping for yesterday's mani.
I started with 3 coats of Ride the Waves and topped that with SV, which made it nice and shiny. I still had some VNL, but it was tolerable. For my stamping, I used my bornpretty plates, M04 and M11. I stamped the butterfly with Konad Special White and the flower with China Glaze Millennium. Because RTW is so vibrant, it made the butterfly look more blue than white, lol.
