10.1 Polish Icing Collection Stamping

Hey there!  I am home from my lovely 4 day weekend at the lake where I got to do some fishing, wakeboarding and waterskiing so I'm a happy girl :-)  I do love the water...too bad I can't actually swim!  Completely unrelated to my love of water, I have a quick mani that I did awhile ago after seeing one of the amazing mani's done by Beaching Nails.  Her flower stamping made me immediately email 10.1 Polish and order the entire Icing collection.  Here's what I came up with the first time I used them... 



The Icing polishes are a collection of sheer, but really brightly coloured, polishes that I thought I would use mostly for leadlighting.  Instead I came up with this easy mani by starting with 1 coat of Coconut Bliss (the sheer white) and then adding the other colours (except for Black Licorice) randomly.  This might be my favourite style entirely because it's so quick and simple!  Then I stamped with Mundo de Unas Black using MoYou London Sailor -03.  A coat of HK Girl and done!



Except then, because Beaching Nails mattified hers, I added Essie Matte About You and ruined it *sad face*  Hers looks fantastic matte but I definitely preferred mine glossy.



And, in case you were curious, I have since tested these for leadlighting and they seem like they'll work wonderfully.  It's nice to have some brighter colours instead of just the more pastel sheers that seem to be more common.

'Til next time...
