QRS ~ Snapdrag & Glittering Rainbow

QRS ~ Snapdrag & Glittering Rainbow
Neon purple & holo glitter – with Marianne stamp on top

I got some Marianne stamping plates from my sweet friend Carolyn and I wanted to try them out!

I picked a couple of polishes I bought in New York a couple of years ago for the purpose.

Snapdrag is neon purple and it’s a true diva to work with. I used three difficult coats for my mani and there were still dragging and bald spots going on. I decided to leave it like that, and added a layer of Glittering Rainbow; A holo glitter topper. I absolutely love the name and glitter makes everything better. It’s not very easy to work with either though, the glitter places itself exactly where it wants to and no necessarily where I want it.

Anyway, enough nagging for now – this is the final mani:

The stamping plate is called Marianne Nails No. 67. Perfectly etched, great motifs, I love it! I picked three different heart motifs for my mani, as you can see. I stamped with a stamping polish from El Corazón called Bisque.

Here are the two divas and the nice sister.

I thought I would sell the two QRS-polishes right away, but I changed my mind about it. The neon purple is such a cool colour and it might work for water marbling. The holo glitter obviously has to stay too :D

Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Okay
Finish: Crème / holo glitter
Overall impression: Good colour but it acts like a diva
Buy again: I don’t think so, but they still get to stay


  1. I love my Marianne Nails plates - and they are a must for you of all people :D
    You created a nice and bold mani!

  2. Nice stamping, it`s a shame that these polishes are so difficult...

    1. Thank you, and yes, they didn't behave very well at all!

  3. I'm in love with this manicure! So pretty!
