Stamped Accent

Happppy Hump Day!

I did this mani last week I think, and ended up convincing myself that I needed some actual stamping polish because I was having a hard time achieving what I was picturing in my head in terms of stamping.  Every nail that I stamped had a different stamp colour because I was trying to find one that made me happy, ha.


I started off with OPI - Dutch Ya Just Love OPI? and left it plain because I ADORE this purple polish.  I just wish the copper shimmer would better translate onto the nail.  


For the accent nails I started off with Essense Grey-t To Be Here. This polish is gorgeous, a soft grey with TONS of pink shimmer throughout.  Stunning, really.  Then I sponged Essence Oh My Glitter on the tips, which is a soft lilac with the same pink shimmer throughout as Grey-t to be Here.


I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Grape Escape from the Fall 2011 Collection, to stamp the image (from the new BM set) on my ring finger.  This was the polish I was most pleased with to stamp, but I think that's true for most Insta Dri polishes.
