After my last stamping effort I was determined to get it right! I got my Color Club Angel Kiss Holo in the mail yesterday and I knew it was my next polish. This color is stunning all by itself. It has a beautiful linear holo to it and the colors range from silver to a bright aqua blue. The pictures do not do the holo in this justice, but it is very hard to capture!
For the stamp I decided to pair it with something in its color range so once again I chose Mary Kay in Tempting Teal. This combo is nice since they share the same tonal range. Tempting Teal is almost completely opaque when stamped with just a few sparse spots.
I decided to cave and try the Seche Vite top coat everyone raves about. I am sold. It dried almost instantly to a rock hard shiny finish. I was able to use my hands with no nicks and take a shower within 10 minutes of painting my nails with no issues! I did experience a hair of shrinkage at the sides, but it is definitely tolerable when I need to keep moving after a mani. My cuticles are still a bit polishy since I used the shower method to clean up the excess instead of using acetone and my paint brush.
I am overall very pleased with house this turns out! I need to practice a bit on getting the stamp completely straight and from edge to edge, but this is something I'll wear for at least a few days until my 4th of July mani :)
