A fairly new to me indie brand that I recently discovered thanks to review by Wondrously Polished, is Top Shelf Lacquer. When I had been browsing Pinterest looking for inspiration for the theme last week, I came across a picture that I thought I could use. I had more inspiration than nails for the theme but when I sat down to do my nails a couple nights ago, I remembered the pix I had seen on Pinterest and decided to do sweater nails, picking a perfect polish from Top Shelf Lacquer as the base. This is what I came up with!
Started with three coats of Top Shelf Lacquer Blue Lagoon, no top coat. Two coats gave good coverage except a little thin at tips probably from my application. As I'm not a fan of VNL on me, added a third thin coat to make sure opaque.
Added a layer of Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC before stamping.
Stamped using MoYou Festive Collection-06 with Funky Fingers Gesso.
Finished with another coat of Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC. I had visions that this was going to be another polish that the stamping polish changed colours from polish bleed through but was thrilled that the stamping stayed white as snow. I can also let you know that there was no nail or skin staining when this was removed which can be concerning with blues sometimes.
