O.P.I Push and Shove Duet Pack Experiment

Hello All!
Happy Sunday! 
I was at Ulta the other day and saw the Gwen Stefani  Duet Pack to create a metallic chrome effect that would have a mirror it claims.
I wondered....Do you HAVE to use the O.P.I  Lay Down the Base base coat?

I found the answer to be no in one instance!

These are the other base coats I used for the experiment.

Pinky Finger: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Ring Finger: Nail Life Gripper Basecoat
Middle Finger: Seche Vite Clear Base Coat
Pointer Finger: Beauty Secrets Base Coat

I used the O.P.I Lay Down the Base on the Thumb.

Here is what happened:
Ok so I put a thin coat of all the base coats and let them completely dry.
I then applied two thin coats of the Push and Shove chrome color.

You can definitely see how the color just streak all over the place on my pinky, ring and pointer fingers but check out that ring finger!!

I was shocked to see that the Nail Life Gripper actually allowed the color to be applied evenly.
Here is a side by side of them both

Except for me not catching the actual nails in the focus....they look pretty much the same.
I picked up my bottle of Nail Life Gripper at Sally Beauty Supply.

Above is a close up of the Push and Shove and Lay Down the Base.

They do say on the package that it is intended for one night only wear since you are not supposed to put a top coat on it. 

I hope you enjoyed this experiment and I will catch you all next time!

Fuzzy Strawberry

Welcome back guys!
Sorry it has been a while but my work schedule has gotten the better of me. Hopefully I can get back into keeping up with the posts here from now on. I'll promises.

I needed something bright and summery.
I always reach for one of the China Glaze neons.
 They really do come out with great variety of colors

 This strawberry stamp is just too cute.
You know I gotta do a accent nail and black and white goes goes great with hot pink.

Skittle Stamping

Hey Guys!
Hope you are having a great Friday!

I had some of my Julep polishes on my desk and just loved the combo
 that I had to do a look with them.

It is weird cause I used the same Konad white stamping polish but when I stamped it on the green one, it came out slightly yellow.
Oh well..I still like it.

Polka Dots and Fishtail

Hey Guys,
Happy Sunday!! 
I was playing with this Sally Hansen Lilac color and the stamp and jsut needed to liven it up with another color and then boom this Sally Hansen green spoke to me

I have not done a fishtail in a while and I really l like how the colors play together in it.

I also wanted to get a glitter as a accent and China Glaze Techno is just such a pretty chunky holo.

Holographic Wave

Hey Guys!
Happy Monday! 

Today's design was just me playing with the China Glaze Hologlam Collection.

I decided to do a sponged gradient with this coral pink and light baby blue color.
I dont know what it is but I just love stamping over gradients.
I love how something that is so simple to do can come out so fancy. Lol
