Mani Monday: Favorite Nude!
Hey guys! It's time again for Mani Monday and this week the theme is favorite Nude! Nude nail polish is something that I don't own a lot of, but I think it's important for everyone to have a good nude in their nail polish collection. I don't rock nude nails often, but it's great to have in the instance that I want something demure and neutral on the nail. It's also great as a base for nail art, which is how I used it today.
I don't have an all time favorite nude. I just haven't found that holy grail nude polish yet. So for my nails today I picked a nice looking nude-y polish that was untried in my collection. It's a great nude polish with just enough of a rose tone to it that it makes it totally wearable. It's the Rimmel 60 seconds polish in caramel cupcake. This polish applies like a dream. I love the brush on these! They are the flat sort of paddle brush style that I like (think Wet n Wild Megalast) but small enough that I can be really precise with them. Caramel Cupcake is a gorgeous color. It's sort of one of those grandma colors that I personally love so much. And the formula on this polish is great. It was opaque and even in two coats and dries in a flash!
I personally find nude nails a little boring, so I decided to do a little stamping on top to kick this mani up a notch. I wanted to keep with the neutral/nude look of the nails so I decided to stamp with one of my favorite fall time polishes. Sinful Colors Nirvana is one of those fantastic mushroom-y taupe colors that is just fantastic. The formula is fantastic and when paired with Caramel Cupcake this color just pops and looks amazing! The stamp I used is the Bundle Monster stamp # BM10 and I used the stone-like image.
I turned the stamp in different directions as I stamped each nail to give it a bit of a dimension and not have each nail look exactly the same. You can see from the photos that my stamping technique still needs some improvement, but while there are quite a few imperfections, these nails looks so nice at arm's length. I love the combination of the colors, and the pattern on this stamp is awesome. I just wish that this set I purchased from bundle monster didn't have that problem with the images being to small. It's most obvious that I encountered issues with this on my thumb.
Overall I really like this mani!!I really like this stunning nude. I highly reccomend it!
