Creative musings in bright colors

This manicure is a fail. I thought it only fair to warn you lovely readers in advance. I wanted to play with Brown Sugar (butterLONDON) because it had been a while. The color looked like it would match up well with a deep red or brown, so I grabbed my stamper and got to work.


Unfortunately, the stamp I chose is not very deeply etched. Which is to say it works, but you only get a veneer of polish…certainly not enough to stand up against Brown Sugar when it is so well color matched! So I tried again, using the same stamp in red. Then I gave up.


Basically, there is a brown/purple glittery base, a red stamp, a brown stamp, and a smattering of sadness. Moral: don’t stamp over complicated glitters with closely matching polishes!


– Gold glitter: butterLONDON – Brown Sugar
– Brown: Confetti – Masquerade Ball
– Red: OPI – Visions of Love


Sorry for the lack of awesome today! (In other news, WordPress recently changed the layout and setup of how to make posts, and I can’t stand it! Ugh)

  1. Not a fail for me. I just added Brown Sugar to my lemming list! I’ve never seen it before…gorgeous. Thanks!

  2. It might not look like you meant it to, but the colours do look beautiful like this!
    By the way, if you go to dashboard first and then to new post via the sidebar it gets you to the old layout for making a new post. The new one is pretty annoying indeed.
