Our penultimate challenge this month is Circus Day. I haven't been to a circus since I was a little kid. What I remember most vividly about it was going to the bathroom with my friend and she ditched me there. I couldn't remember how to get back to my seat, and I was pissed and a little scared, and an usher had to help me find my friend and her dad out of the thousands of people there.
Probably why I didn't go to the circus again...
Deep breath. Clean slate with Revlon Spirit, a lovely white. I topcoated it with Rica Glossy Glam, so it's shiny and hard, too. I was gifted with a bottle of Glossy Glam from Ricarda, and I must say, I really like it! It is a thin, smooth topcoat that flows effortlessly over the nail and dries fast and glossy. It makes a great surface to stamp on, too. The only thing I can't speak to is longevity, because I change my polish so often.
There probably isn't going to be a better time to use this Winstonia W209 stamping plate than a circus challenge! All circus/fair type images! I stamped with Finger Paints Black Expressionism.
I took a bunch of stripers and played Coloring Book. My husband said it was like a color-by-numbers!
I added SOPI Meet Me At The Disco for a sparkly finish.
Bottle shot: Revlon Spirit, Finger Paints Black Expressionism, stripers in red, metallic pink, and glitters in purple, gold, and green, and SOPI Meet Me At The Disco.
Do you have happy memories of going to a circus or fair?
