In addition to being Father's Day, it is also Sunday Stamping in Adventures in Stamping with the challenge today being a stamped manicure with glitter. I wanted to create something that both fit the challenge as well as Father's Day. Picking out the glitter polish took more thought than usual since we all know that most dads love
I finally settled on a glitter polish purely for the name. Sinful Colors Daddy's Girl was the winner for this daddy's girl. I stamped using Bundle Monster plate BM-203 and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Presto Pewter, a very manly dark metallic gray. The pattern itself reminds me of men's ties, so I thought it was quite appropriate for the occasion...
It is hard to capture in photos, but the fine glitter of Daddy's Girl looks amazing as it sparkles under lights from underneath the gray...
Sinful Colors Daddy's Girl is a sheer purple jelly with a fine purple fleck/glitter. It is best layered over a more opaque color. The swatches here are four coats and the nail line is still visible much to my frustration. The brush was a bit stiff making it difficult to apply even layers. Aside from the frustration of application, the color is just gorgeous. I will definitely be trying layering combinations with this polish. Swatches are with a top coat...
I'm such a fan of these fleck glitters...
