How's your weekend going? Mine's off to a great start! I'm off to see my sister and her kids, my wonderful 6-yr-old nephew and 4-yr-old niece. I haven't seen them in a while, so I wanted to do something special for my little niece. She's going through the Hello Kitty stage... Now I could not be farther from understanding what Hello Kitty is all about, let alone really embracing it.. but just to make her happy I stamped it on my accent nails! I'm taking pink and purple polishes with me (her favorite colors) along with the plate containing "Hello Kitty" design. My sister said that she would let my little niece wear nail polish for a couple days, so I'm really excited to show her my 'goodies'!! I will let you guys know how she liked it!
For this mani I used my newest addition, Finger Paints "Plum Startled". It's a vampy plum colored polish with blue and purple shimmer. It looks as if it's glowing from the inside out!!! I wouldn't say the formula was necessarily great, it was rather thin. It's a first for Finger Paints for me, they usually come through with awesome colors and formula. Not to say that it was bad on this one, just a little different! I used two coats for this one, it was enough to cover up the whole nail.
I stamped my ring finger and thumb with Hello Kitty design from my newest Shany plates, SH08 (I got them just for this design too!!! That's how crazy I am about my little niece!!), and Orly Shine. I tried to make it a little less obvious than stamping it on bright pink, for example, because we're going to an adult party as well and I want to look somewhat of the age =))
Btw, I used new top coat than I haven't tried before, you can see it in the picture above. The Nail Life Speed Demon is really a speed demon!! (and it got that song by Michael Jackson stuck in my head too!!) Seriously though, I picked it up at Sally's yesterday per salesperson's recommendation, and I have to say that I can compare it to Seche Vite! It dries just as fast as Seche!
Anyway, Plum Startled is part of Finger Paints Fall of Surprises! newest 2012 collection. It's currently available for sale at Sally Beauty Supply stores and online. It's limited collection so if you like this color, go get it!
I hope you all liked this color and my little kiddy stamping!!! Have a wonderful Saturday!!
