Super glittery purple polish. :) I painted two coats of A-England Avalon and then two coats of Girly Bits Purple Potion…

Purple Glitter with Winstonia W108 Silver Tips

February 16, 2013

EDITED TO ADD: I forgot to mention that you can get 10% off your order at winstoniastore.com through April 30, 2013, by using the code DAILYSOMETHING. Thanks, Winstonia!

Winstonia sent me their stamping plates to review and they arrived yesterday. Couldn’t wait to try them out! I’ll have a more thorough review later after I’ve tried a few more designs out, but for now here’s some polish and stamping. As for a short review, I had no problems stamping this one design. I used a regular Konad scraper and stamper.

NOTE: The plates are available for purchase straight from Winstonia HERE, or they’re also available through Amazon HERE.

Base Color: A-England Avalon & Smitten Hocus Pocus
Stamping Color: Essie No Place Like Chrome
Stamping Plate: Winstonia W108

I think this almost looks like a Halloween nail design! LOL!

From start to finish… First, I painted two coats of A-England Avalon (it’s the perfect purple under the glitter polish I wanted to use)…

Then I added one coat of Smitten Hocus Pocus. I don’t want to run out of this glitter polish so that’s why I layered it over the A-England Avalon. The purples are perfectly matched. :)

For the stamping, I used Winstonia plate W108 and Essie No Place Like Chrome (silver) to stamp a “paint dripping” tip. There were a couple nails that I didn’t get the design on the complete tip of the nail, so I went over the tip with the silver polish.

Cirque Fascination Street

September 14, 2012

Cirque Fascination Street is a tad bit sheer (you definitely need 3 coats), so I decided to layer it over one coat of A-Englad Avalon. Purple over purple. Perfect! I love the holographic sparkle in this polish. The photos do not do it justice! In person it’s just gorgeous!

You can get Fascination Street from Cirque HERE. They ship fairly quickly. I received my order about a week after I placed it.

BTW, I took these photos 3 days after I painted my nails. Like most polishes with glitter or holographic specks in them, it wears well and resists chipping. :)

Deborah Lippman Happy Birthday

August 24, 2012

Speaking of very popular nail polishes, Deborah Lippman’s Happy Birthday is one of the most popular glitter polishes. I bought it a few months back and just now am trying it out. There’s a part of me that’s wondering why I ever bought it because I’m usually not one for multicolor glitter. In fact, as I look down at my nails right now I don’t particularly like it.

However, in pictures I love it. Weird. :)

Base Color: A-England Camelot (black cream)
Glitter Polish: Deborah Lippman Happy Birthday
Top Coat: Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat
