When Stamping Goes Too Far
Guys, I think I went too far. I got my four A England polishes and decided I would do “Saint George” with Rimmel “Pure Silver” stamping and accent nail. Deep green sparkles with the very best silver I’ve ever bought? Sounds awesome!
Except then I picked a stamp that covers so much of the base that you can’t really see the awesomeness of Saint George. What the hell, me? I’ll keep it for a couple of days, but then I might need to do a couple of days of non-stamped Saint George. Because otherwise I waited 10 days for shipping for NO PAYOFF!
A couple of observations about the A England set I got: “Percival” is very nearly a clone of Butter London’s “Knees Up.” Percival is just a teensy bit deeper and has a bit of sparkle in the metallic sheen. It also applied more evenly. Knees Up is one of my favorite polishes so I’m impressed that I found a superior version. “Dragon” is nice but I think it needs to grow on me. Although I might just be annoyed because the brush was bunged up and had lots of shaggy long bristles that I had to tweeze out and trim. “The Order of the Garter” was the sheerest of the bunch, but with another coat it was quite lovely.
Anyway, here’s my over-the-top St George/Pure Silver mani that I’ll be distracted by all day tomorrow.
