Hello everyone!  Hope everyone is doing well!  I am on to the next mani of the laid back challenge.  Today is silver.  I am really having fun with the challenge so far.  I am also challenging myself to use some of the hundreds of stamping plates I own and have never used and also untried nail polishes.  I have so many pretty colors and beautiful images on my plates but I am not getting to them on a normal basis.  I tend to gravitate to the same polishes instead of trying my new ones.  Do you ever do that??

I started out with my base coat and added two coats of China Glaze Icicle.  On my ring finger and thumb I painted two coats of OPI Servin' Up Sparkle.  I then used Kleancolor Metallic Fuchsia and Shany stamping plate SH 218 on my pinkie, middle finger and index finger.  I topped the entire mani off with the NYC Grand Central Station quick dry top coat.  I am really loving this top coat!!  It does not smear, it is super thick (I do not like to feel the gritty glitter) and it drys so fast!!  Where has this top coat been all my life??  This is the results...

I guess this could still somewhat pass as a Valentine's mani.  What do you think?  I was going to put a single set of lips on my ring finger and thumb but I did not want to stamp over the glitter.  I would have put more glitter on each nail but I thought it was perfect the way it was.  What are your thoughts on this mani??


  1. I always do that, I use same polishes over and over and never try out newer ones lol :)

    Very pretty btw, the lips look great.

    1. Why do we do that?? LOL! Thanks for stopping by!!


I love feedback, requests and comments. Please take the time to let me know your thoughts!
