Stamping Plate: QA52

This stamping plate is pretty much Psy of Gangnam Style and Korean pop sensation. I thought it made for a comical bit of stamping personally.

Base Polish: Barry M - Matt White
Glitter Polish: Kleancolor - Kiss Goodnight 171
Stamping Polish: W7 - Black
Stamping Plate: QA52 and Cheeky 031

The stamping plate itself came with a protective peel off sticker on both sides of the plate.


The images stamped relatively well, and even on the deeper images you don't need to use any difficult techniques. As you can see below the images stamped well, the only concern I have is with the whole body Psy, and Psy with arms crossed his face seems to look odd.

Swatch: Kleancolor - Metallic Pink (158)

Originally bought this polish for stamping with, which is does work perfectly for.

Colour: Bright pink
Finish: Metallic
Opacity: One coater
How Much? 15ml


Something I did notice about this polish is it changes colour when you apply a clear top coat, similar to the Barry M Chameleon polishes and the China Glaze Tranzitions.

Swatch: Kleancolor - Blue Satin 37

This polish is quite different, I imagine it would be quite like marmite. As in some people will like it and others will not. This is because of the pieces of 'flitter' the strands of glitter. I managed to get this to work and only needed one coat of topcoat.

Opacity: Two Coats
Colour: Denim blue with holographic flitter
Finish: Glitter in the form of strands
Brush Type: Normal
Anything Else?  0.5fl oz

Nail Polish: Battle of the Pinks

For someone who isn't a fan of pink I sure seem to have a lot of them!

ELF - Gum Pink, ELF - Fluorescent Pink, ELF - Hot Pink,  Barry M - Buzz, ELF - Punk Purple, Kleancolor - Metallic Pink, ELF -  Mod Mauve, ELF - Fuschia, ELF - Purple Pleaser, Kleancolor - Metallic Fuschia, Max Factor - Plum, ELF - Rosy Raisin, Sally Hansen - Royal Romance

First round was easy, whittling down to three polishes. Hot pink is vibrant and out there, Mod Mauve is understated and bland but works as a good base polish.

And the winner is... Max Factor's Plum. While the other two are great base polishes, Plum you can wear alone. Gorgeous cream polish.

Nail Polish: Battle of the Blues

Battle of the blues, so many blues to choose from!

Barry M - Blueberry Ice Cream, Collection 2000 - Electric Dreams, Essence - Let's Get Lost, MUA - Smurf Blue, Barry M - Chameleon Blue, Stargazer - Blue Chrome, Miss Sporty - Pop Fiction, Models Own - True Blue, Barry M - Retro Blue, Barry M - Blue Plum Gelly, Max Factor - Odyssey  Kleancolor - Metallic Blue, Sleek - Oxford, Sinful Colors - Hot Spot, OPI - Road House Blues, Eyeko - Cosmic, No.7 - Betty Blues, ELF - Navy, MUA - Navy

Cutting down all of those polishes to just four wasn't too difficult, Barry M - Blueberry Ice Cream is such a nice cream base polish perfect for nail art. Miss Sporty - Pop Fiction is quite a unique periwinkle blue, shame it smells really weird.

Making the final two are Barry M and OPI. The Blue Plum is just so rich of a colour and covers in just one coat.

And the winner is... Road House Blues! It's just more of a colder navy compared to the Barry M. Something very wearable, plenty of polish in there (15ml) and the brush makes application so easy.
