Hey there! Last week I shared my first impressions of the Delush polish brand with a review of a couple of polishes and the DP01 stamping plate. In case you didn't read it, I had nothing but good things to say about this brand and that's going to continue on. Today I have two more polishes and the second of her new stamping plates, DP02 also known as Dazed & Enthused. I think of the three stamping plates I have/will be reviewing, this one could be my favourite. I love how today's looks turned out using it.
Dazed & Enthused (DP02) is a 6 x 12 cm engraved stamping plate with 12 16 x 20 mm images. I have no complaints about the etching of the plate as all the images I tried stamped beautifully.
My first swatch is of Bitchcraft, a black jelly polish filled with purple-pink and holographic glitters of all shapes and sizes. At first I didn't think I was going to really like this polish but, once I got it onto my nail, I realized how wrong I was. I absolutely liked it, especially with the stamping below. This is three coats plus top coat.
I was so hesitant to use this first stamping image because @lylynails had already done the most amazing mani ever using it. But I pushed away my insecurities and used it anyways and I'm so thankful I did. I loved this Mundo de Unas Bronze stamping over the jelly/glitter polish.
See, this is why I love stamping images with lots of negative space. You gotta let those pretty polishes shine through!
The second polish today is Amazemint, a mint green crelly with mint and white glitters, a lovely color for spring. This is three coats plus top coat.
For the stamping, I did some advanced stamping on a clear stamper and applied it directly to my nail. I stamped with Mundo de Unas white and filled in the with Trust Fund Beauty I'm Kind of a Big Deal. After not quite entering the image on my middle finger perfectly, I stamped a bit extra in the corner to make it look like it was on purpose...maybe I shouldn't have told you that, haha!
For my third and final mani today, I did this gradient-type stamping. I don't know whether or not to call it a gradient since I just tried to get different shades of black/white/grey blended together in a random pattern. The base is KBShimmer How You Dune?. The end result was made matte with Essie Matte About You.
That's all for today. I hope you like these swatches/stamping manis as much as I do. If you're interested in any of these products, the links to Delush Polish can be found below.
