Because I can't leave well enough alone, I decided to add a stamped design to my Barielle Date Night mani. As I had rediscovered my China Glaze Romantiques (again, lost in my previous polish mess. LOL), I figured I'd use one of them. But then came the "what design? question. I stared at my stamping plates without getting any inspiration, and then I remembered this stamped design I did a few years ago, and decided to copy myself. :P
I think I may like this one even more than the inspiration (which has been a favorite of mine since I did it). This is 2 coats of Date Night topped with ChG Cherish and Konad Special Polish in white and Konad plate m57 for the design. I love the contrast of the foily, light green against the deep emerald of Date Night.
Also, I know I used to say it often in the past and then stopped because I stopped stamping, but the polishes in China Glaze Romantique collection are the best polishes for stamping outside of the Konad Special Polishes. Lately, I've used only Konad Special Polishes, as I find that regular polish has a tendency to be too thin or doesn't adhere as well to the nail. However, the polishes in the Romantique collection are perfect for stamping, even though I really don't like them to use for a manicure. I still see the Romantiques on China Glazes website, so they still should be readily available if you are looking for some great polishes for stamping.
