Whats Up Nails Stamping Nail Polish Swatches

Press  Sample 

Hey there!  If you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen quite a few posts using Whats Up Nails stamping polishes.  I thought it might be good to properly swatch them as regular polish and as stamping polish over black and white in case folks want to get a look at them individually.  This really have become staples in my collection and I've already gone through whole bottles of some of them that I use most often (I'm looking at you, black and white...rose gold, you're almost there too).  They apply great as regular polish though I can't speak to whether or not they stain since I always use a base and rarely keep the same mani on for more than a day and most stamp really opaque, even over black.  At the end of the post, I'll also post some manis I've done where I used quite a few of them together, just for fun.

Hit The Bottle Jelly Shots Part 2 (and more) Swatches

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I'm back on the blog today to share some swatches of the second instalment (and more) of Hit The Bottle Jelly Shots.  The Jelly Shots are a collection of sheer polishes that are perfect for leadlighting (think of a colouring book but on your nails, when you paint your nails a light color, stamp with a dark color and then paint in your stamping image with the sheer polish) but can also be used for a lot of other nail art techniques.  Click here to see my swatches of the original set.  I've already used a lot of these newer ones  in some of my Instagram posts (along with the original Jelly Shots) so I'll include photos of some of those towards the end.  These were mostly sent to be by Lantern & Wren but since receiving these ages ago (when I disappeared from the blogging world) more have been released so I have purchased a few and included them here.  There is also a neon "Street Art" collection but I have not yet purchased those.  Now onto the swatches!
