The Neverending Pile: Drugstore Polish


Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Neverending Pile Challenge is a drugstore-available polish. For me, that’s almost all I own, since most other polishes are out of my price range. I used polishes from a few different brands, including 3 untrieds, and I decided to try creating some stamping decals again. essence-colour-&-go-hello-spring!-revlon-whimsical-stamping-decals-sinful-colors-fig-catrice-keep-pool-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-bm-321-m64-stamping-platesI have tried to make decals once before, but this time around I managed a lot better to get the decals to adhere to my nail without wrinkles or bubbles. I watched this video by Lucy’s Stash to help improve my technique and it definitely helped. essence-colour-&-go-hello-spring!-revlon-whimsical-stamping-decals-sinful-colors-fig-catrice-keep-pool-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-bm-321-m64-stamping-platesI started with two coats of Essence’s Hello, Spring! on all my nails. On my index, middle and pinkie fingers, I added two coats of my first untried – Revlon Whimsical. It consists of blue and rose pink glitters in a greenish base, however it is extremely sheer so I definitely recommend layering it over another polish. essence-colour-&-go-hello-spring!-revlon-whimsical-stamping-decals-sinful-colors-fig-catrice-keep-pool-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-bm-321-m64-stamping-platesFor the decals, I used plate BM-321 for my thumb nail and m64 for my ring finger. I filled in the patterns using Charlie Revlon Lady in Red along with two more untrieds, Sinful Colors Fig and Catrice Keep Pool. It definitely worked better with the image on my thumb, with larger areas to fill in. I managed a lot better using the method of creating the decal on the stamper itself, so I’ll definitely be giving this some more tries!essence-colour-&-go-hello-spring!-revlon-whimsical-stamping-decals-sinful-colors-fig-catrice-keep-pool-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-bm-321-m64-stamping-platesHere’s how it looked in the sun. In the autumn/winter months, the sun shines into my room, so hopefully I’ll manage to show you some more sunlight pictures when I get a chance to photograph during the day. essence-colour-&-go-hello-spring!-revlon-whimsical-stamping-decals-sinful-colors-fig-catrice-keep-pool-charlie-revlon-lady-in-red-bm-321-m64-stamping-platesWhat do you think of my attempt at stamping decals?npc-graphic
