H & M ~ No Shrinking Violet


H & M ~ No Shrinking Violet
Blue to violet duochrome with shimmer

H & M makes great polishes! They have a big range of colours and finishes and the price is good. I bought four polishes last time I visited H & M. Today I'm wearing the first of them.

The formula is good and so is the coverage. I applied two coats for full opacity. The drying time is good.

The stamp is from the stamping plate "KADS Geometry 007". I stamped with a new matte stamping polish from El Corazón: "st-matte-106".

Here's the final result.

Born Pretty stamping plate Artist L007

Born Pretty Store has sent me some stamping plates to try out.

The first stamping plate is called “Artist L007” and it looks like this. Look at these great designs! I love them all!

Here is the link to the stamping plate:


I used the dotty design and the two sizes hearts for my design today. The blue and the green stamping polishes are oldies, also from Born Pretty Store. The baby blue base colour is "Take Me To Heaven" from Essence.

Let me show you the final result.

Depend ~ O2 Basic #577


Depend  ~ O2 Basic #577
Yellow shimmer

This little shimmer polish can be used both as an effect topper and on its own. I used it as a topper today. It may take three coats to make this opaque on its own. The drying time was good.

I layered it over an orange crème from H&M called "Orangeade".

The stamp is from the stamping plate "JR-79" and I stamped with "Neon Red" from El Corazón.

Here's the final result including a layer of topcoat.
