31DC2013 - Day 8: Metallic Nails

I'll start by saying I don't like metallic nail polish. I own a lot of it because I love using it for stamping, but I almost never wear it on it's own. I thought I'd do a stamping manicure for today using some of my metallic nail polishes but I felt like it would be cheating, and I've already cheated enough during the first week of this challenge...

A few weeks ago my friend got back from Barcelona and got me 5 amazing nail polishes from Kiko's Mirror Metallic collection. I asked her to get them for me because I've herd they were great for stamping, but today I decided to wear them on their own. The formula was really great. Some were streakier than others, but that is to be expected in metallic polishes, and they dried very quickly.

I felt like they needed a little something extra so I stamped the zebra print fro my m57 fauxnad plate using wow #393 (black cream).

I took some pictures of the bottles and swatches of the colors. they are all opaque in 1 coat but some of them are a bit streaky so I applied 2 coats and no topcoat.

  2. מורידה בפנייך את הכובע :) לא יודעת איך יש לך זמן וסבלנות להתמיד באתגר, ועוד לעשות דברים מטריפים :)

    1. תודה!
      בינתיים עבר רק שבוע, אני מקווה להחזיק מעמד ולעמוד בקצב עד הסוף כי בינתיים ממש כיף לי :)))

  3. Huh, I could have sworn I commented on this! Well, they look amazing and I want all of those polishes :)
