Started with a base of two coats of Sally Hansen Hearts on Fire. I found this old beauty a couple weeks ago at one of my local discount supply places...they randomly stock the old square bottle Sally Hansen's and I keep on going back in the hopes of stumbling across Project Runway. This is two coats with no topcoat and while you can see just a hint of VNL, I didn't add a third as I knew I'd be layering and stamping on top of it.
Added a coat of Oopsie Daisies With A Cherry on Top,** which is an assortment of red glitters in a slightly tinted base.
Bottle shot of With a Cherry on Top, which can be layered on its own but can also be applied over your favourite red base.
I don't think I've shown the bottom of the Oopsie Daisies polishes in other posts, but I adore how they are labeled on the bottom like the large retail brands. I thought this was a great idea!
Because I chose to layer With a Cherry on Top on a solid base, I thought there may be some interest in seeing how the polish layers. Starting at the left, the first swatch is one coat, the middle is two and the end right one is three.
For stamping, I wanted a stamp that the base layering could be seen, and wanted to do do something stylish and sophisticated, versus a themed or cutesy mani. Chose A44, stamped with black Konad special polish.
I can't wait to use this same combination of red base, layered With A Cherry on Top with holiday appropriate images at Christmas and Valentine's. But because its fall now, on the other hand, and just to show you how versatile With a Cherry on Top is, I layered it with Oopsie Daisies Apple Picking. I loved this combination too! My apologies for such poor clean up and cuticles on my right hand, but I couldn't help but share!
Have I mentioned that Apple Pickings is one of my favourite fall polishes? I just think its an interesting combination of glitter colours and sizes in the clear base that just goes perfectly with so many different polishes as shown here, that if I wasn't such a nail fanatic and have an inner need to change my polishes and stamped images so often, that I'm sure it would be on my nails straight through September to November! I think I've worn it at least four times since I got it over the last few weeks which I think is some type of record for me as I simply don't wear a polish that often.
Hope you're having a great weekend....and thanks for looking!
