Pupa ~ 051 stamped with Sally Hansen ~ Lightning


Pupa ~ 051  
Berry coloured crème

I’ve been dying to try Pupa polishes for ages, so I was thrilled to receive this polish from Anastasia who lives in the Little World of Coloured Nails.

It’s a berry coloured crème, and the colour is right up my alley. I applied two coats, and the polish applies easily. If I should wear this polish on its own, I’d probably add a third coat to cover up imperfections. But you know that I am not going to leave a crème polish on its own, don’t you! ;)

The colour is a gorgeous autumn colour; I really like this. Here’s a pic of two coats, without top coat:


And from another angle:



Isn’t this just a great colour?!

Then I stamped on it. I used my XL stamping plate DRK-A, and stamped with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri “Lightening”, which is a great yellow crème. I like using the Insta-Dri polishes for stamping, because they generally stamp pretty well!



Then I applied a layer of Orly’s “Shine on Crazy Diamond”, which is a topper: Clear base with holographic glitter. I love the glitter, that can spice up almost every mani!  
 
Et voilá! The mani is done!


I’m glad that there were two Pupa polishes in the swap, so I have one more to try. I’m sure it’s just as nice as this one.

Opacity: 7/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Durability: 8/10
Value for money: 8/10
Overall: 8/10
Buy again: Yes 



Happy new year to all of you, 
and thanks for being the coolest followers ever!
