My Lame Attempt to Dupe A England Saint George



Another mani from the archives...I haven't done my nails in three days now...and there's no stamping on my fingers either to be honest....I'll explain that soon....anyway, when A England released their The Legends collex, I thought, hmm.... I don't need to BUY them...I'll just attempt some layering to re-create them. So this is my lame attempt of Saint George after I stamped it.


Started with a base of two coats of Essie Going Incognito.


Layered with a coat of OPI Standing Room Only.....but it was way too much holo.  Not that I'm complaining.  LOVE holo!  But unfortunately it wasn't even close in my attempt to recreate A England Saint George, which was the whole intent of doing this mani. If you have Saint George, you'll know this.  (After I did this mani, I  bought Saint George...if you don't have it, just take my word its not even close! lol!)


Then I thought I couldn't let all those rainbows go to waste..so stamped some rainbows using Konad black special polish with Big SdP I.

Then topped with a coat of SV.  Unfortunately, SV killed the holo a bit if you compare it to the first pix which was with SV, but it sharpened the black stamping.      



Hope you're having a great weekend!  Thanks for looking!

  1. It's too bad the dupe didn't work out... It still looks fab though. Have you considered trying spectraflair to create dupes of holo polishes?

  14. Well the final look is just awesome! I'm glad you didn't let this mani go to waste. I do that all the time, stamp over something that I wasn't sure about, but you never know what final result you'll end up with, like yours here, it's awesome!
