New polish! This is the last of the group that I picked up from the Llarowe sale over a month ago. I have been in the market for a pastel green (not a pastel mint), and my eye caught on No Worries by Glitter Gal, so I had to get it! It was 75 cents.
No Worries is a beautiful shade of jade green. Which is to say, it is a slightly blue toned green (not exactly what I wanted but much closer than what I had) and is a stunning color. I think it turns just a hint more green with top coat, but that could just be me being strange. It covered in three thin coats and dries fast, but doesn’t self-level, so I needed to be a bit careful with application. Regardless, it is beautiful!
The bottle says the brands is “G gal” but I’m sure the brand is actually Glitter Gal. It’s a rather weird abbreviation and I’m glad I remembered the full brand name when I bought it! The Llarowe website made it look like a very light shade of pastel green (like a pistachio color) and it really isn’t but I think I like it better this way. It also made me feel less bad about ordering the pastel green from Zoya that I showed you on Monday! Oddly enough, No Worries is actually greener than Tiana, which is closer to mint but the same pastel brightness.
I knew I wanted to stamp over No Worries with a green gradient, but I couldn’t figure out what exactly. I started with a Born Pretty Store plate, but the design wasn’t dense enough for my tastes. Then I tried the ravenclaw hehe plate from Beauty Queen, but the design I liked had the plate number right in the middle of it, so I couldn’t stamp the pattern in the direction I wanted! I finally settled on an Emily de Molly plate, but I thought the lines would be too tiny for my non-stamping polishes…low and behold, they worked! The initial gradient was two shades of green, but it didn’t pop enough so I started over (again…I re-did every nail but my pinky by the time I was done. This is why it really helps to ADD TOP COAT before you stamp. I didn’t have to re-do the jade color, I could just remove the stamp with 100% acetone gently and try again). Finally…a dense stamps with tiny flowers with a teal-green-black gradient!

Voila! Sorry this post is so text-heavy, but I wanted to share the trials of stamping. I usually don’t have this much trouble picking a stamp! Hope you enjoyed 🙂
