I picked up a silver metallic polish on sale at ULTA, and I wanted to see if it would stamp well! My favorite silver polish (Excalibur by A England…the older one) is a tad bit expensive, so I was looking for an alternative when stamping.
I started with a purple gradient, because purple totally goes well with silver. Also, I have a bunch of purples and I have been using too much blue recently. When that was dry, I added my stamp using my new silver, South Kensington by Nails Inc.
Although the silver worked ok, I still like Excalibur better…it is basically perfect. I’ll likely keep trying to use this (maybe when I paint my nails silver, and leave Excalibur for stamping? It’s just such a perfect polish…). I’ll figure it out!
~ Light purple: Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac

~ Medium dark purple: L’oreal – Paparazzi Pleaser
~ Dark purple: Zoya – Monica
~ Silver: Nails Inc – South Kensington

Little rhinestones were added because little rhinestones are fun! This is also Day 1 of what I have dubbed ‘chrome/metallic week’, Today is silver, tomorrow is teal, and Friday is multi chromes! They are all pretty awesome. Enjoy!
