Makeup Savvy 15 Day Nail Challenge Day 11: Metallic

Hi!

Today, I definitely wanted to try stamping again. It's something I love looking at and I love experimenting with different polishes to see which ones work best. I came across a tip on a blog the other day that said Barry M Foil polishes were amazing stamping polishes. I can't remember which blog I saw it on, but THANK YOU!

I've had the Silver Foil polish for ages and I really didn't like it, but after seeing how well it stamps, I'm going to get the Gold one too. I used the Silver Foil polish and Catrice Heavy Metallilac:


For the stamping, I used the stamper from the Essence Stampy Set, an old loyalty card as a scraper, and this Essence plate (I don't think they have names or numbers, I couldn't find one anyway).


And here's the finished look! I added three silver rhinestones on the accent nail.




It's super metallic in reality, I love how it turned out. I couldn't get over how good the Barry M was for stamping, it's better than some of the silver special stamping polish I've tried! I really love how this turned out, it reminds me of really bling argyle socks.
