Green with Envy over the Budda-Ful Silver Mercedes

Today I want to show you a manicure that I have been wearing all weekend long. I created it to match an emerald green taffeta dress which I wore to my cousin's birthday party. I tried quite a few of the dark green polishes in my stash, but none of them matched the iridescent look of taffeta. Instead of using as single polish, I ended up layering Barielle Budda-Ful* over Ulta Green With Envy. The combination of the two polishes was the perfect fit for what I wanted, mimicking the iridescent look.


I stamped with silver to match the silver accessories that I chose to wear with my dress. The stamping was done using Pure Ice Silver Mercedes and the new Mash plate Mash-46. Just to mention, Silver Mercedes is my new favorite silver stamping polish. It has blown all previous competition out of the water and I wouldn't reach for anything else at this point.


I'm also incredibly impressed with the new Mash plates. The quality is fantastic and every little detail is transferred to the stamper and nail....


I stamped the images right off the plates on my left and and reversed them (mirror image) on my right. As soon as I have some time, I will make a tutorial to show how I do that, since the stamping plates obviously do not come in a mirror image...


I'd love to know what you think of this!
What do you think of the post title?... I was feeling a bit creative :D

Thanks for looking!

  12. Thank you so much girls!!
    It looks a lot more complicated than it really is so I encourage all to try it and keep trying (to those who said you are new to stamping).

    I will work on a tutorial for how I flip the stamps as soon as I can :D

  16. Thank you Steffy! I'm glad you like the manicure. I know it can be hard seeing polishes from the US and vise versa for me. I'm always eyeing European brands I can't get here...
