Sunday Stamping - Leafy
It must be coming on Fall, because the stamping challenge is 'leafy'. Not that Fall is about falling leaves in Central Florida - not really. I think we get about a week or two of cooler weather that could be either fall or winter, and the few trees that aren't pine or palm seem to dump their leaves all at once. I still love it, though - it's a break from all this heat, and it's the end of hurricane season!
Hard to believe that this beautiful duochrome is a $2 bottle of Essence. I wore it all day without anything on top, I loved it that much. So easy to see the shift from purple to green, even teal. This color is called Chic Reloaded, and I bought it online at Ulta because my local store never seems to have them in stock.
I broke out two new polishes for today's stamping, and I give them both an A+.
Both are part of the new Sinful Colors Metallics collection, and are also $2 a piece. This is quite the budget-friendly mani, if I do say so myself. Moss Have is a Must Have for stamping. I don't have any greens that stamp so easily and so brightly. Gone Platinum is the purple - and, unlike the Essie Nothing Else Metals, this one actually looks purple on the nail, not silver.
I just swiped or dabbed both colors on the plate, swiped with a bank card, and stamped. Duo-colored leaves over a duo-chrome base!
The stamp is from DRK-A, if you were curious. I just bought it in a blog sale, and couldn't wait to use it. Are you stamping today?
