Featured on Chameleon Stampede Nail Blog!

I was totally excited when sweet Mandy from Chameleon Stampede Nail Blog said that she would feature me on her blog. I obviously said yes, and she asked me to send her a picture for the blog post. I considered for a couple of days what to make for her blog, and this is what I came up with: 

Orly ~ Here comes Trouble
Grass green glitter

Here comes trouble is from Orly’s Pin-Up collection from summer 2011.

This polish has been sitting in my stash for so long, that it’s almost embarrassing *hangs head in shame*. It’s such a beautiful glitter, and yet I didn’t let it shine until now.

But anyway! What it took to get this polish out of its drawer, was other blogger girls’ challenge. They reached the challenge “your oldest untried” and that made me remember this polish.

I used three easy coats for this mani; and had no problems with dragging or bald spots at all. I sealed the glitter with a layer of NYC Turbo Dry top coat, and here’s what that looks like:


And from another angle, just because this baby is so incredibly pretty:


Then I stamped on it. I chose to stamp flowers because this green is the perfect grass green. I used the stamping plate BM03 from Bundlemonster and just a plain no name white stamping polish. I made a dot of yellow in the middle of each flower with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri “Lightening”. An extra layer of the NYC top coat finished off the mani:


And one final shot of it:


I am really pleased with this, and so happy that Mandy offered to feature me. You can find her post here. A big thank you to Mandy! ♥


So, how do you like this? Isn’t this just the perfect green for flowers?
