Girly Bits Get Weaponized + A New 'Stamping' Polish

While I've had Girly Bits Get Weaponized for quite some time, it was still an untried.  I know, I don't know what is wrong with me either!  So shortly after New Years, it came out of untrieds and after I used it, I was disappointed in myself for not using it earlier!  It's gorgeous!  Definitely up there as one of my favourite polishes!

For base polishes, used two coats of Girly Bits Get Weaponized with an accent of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Grey Matters, no topcoat.  I see a sea foam green tint in Grey Matters, not grey at all, and thought it would be a nice accent to Get Weaponized.

You can see the holo from Girly Bits Get Weaponized better!

Top coated with KBShimmer Clearly on Top before stamping on all fingers except the accent; I used the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat on it.

New Pet'la plates arrived just before Christmas but I hadn't had a chance to use them because was heavily into holiday and New Year's themed nails.  But thought I would try them out now that the holidays were over.  So picked an image from Pet'la Golden Russian. 

I had picked up FunkyFingers Gesso and Black Knight for a friend when I was in the US last.  When I was there, thought I would pick them up to try out as well.  I hadn't used either one even thought I've had them for a while but she kept on telling me how well Gesso (the white one) stamps.  So I dug out the bottle I bought for myself and have to say, I was thoroughly impressed how well it stamps!  Especially for $1.67US a bottle!  I've since used FunkyFingers Gesso a few times for stamping and have had great results every time!

Pet'la Golden Russian (no names on the plates; I hope this changed in the future!)

For the accent finger, it was looking mighty bare but I didn't want to do the same stamping.  So decided to add a couple stones to it for interest.  After I had placed them, top coated all fingers with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.  But the Sally Hansen Gel Polish did not like this at all, it freaked out and went all stringy as you can see.  Way to wreak a mani!  I was so bummed!

So again added a coat of the Miracle Gel Topcoat on accent and it seemed to like it better.  This pix, you can see the holo a little better and the stringy lines behaved a little better.

Overall, I loved how this turned out! It seems that no matter what lighting I used, I had lobster hands; good thing I never let this bother me!

Thanks for looking!
