Barielle Swizzle Stix Stamped

I had a crazy three day swatching marathon of a weekend. Thrity polishes swatched to be exact, in between babysitting, cleaning, and a birthday dinner. I'm beat and drained with no energy to process any of the photos and facing daunting fact that I have to go to work today. Instead of waving the white flag and collapsing, I would like to share with you a manicure I wore a little while ago...

For the manicure I started out with a base of Barielle Swizzle Stix and stamped it using Bundle Monster plate BM-317 in white. The stamp has a lot of fine detail which created a very delicate pattern. I often prefer a subtle pattern such as this when I will be wearing the manicure to work...

This manicure might remind you of this one I created about two weeks ago. To be honest, the manicure I'm showing today was actually created first. I just have not had the opportunity to post it until now...

Just take a look at those tiny hearts. Each one stamped perfectly. I'm so impressed with the quality of this Bundle Monster plate...

Barielle Swizzle Stix is a soft baby blue cream. It is actually from the Summer 2009 release, but new to my  collection. The formula is very easy to work with and has smooth application. Two coats for full opacity as you see here. Interestingly enough, this looks completely different from other swatches I have seen online. Not sure if the color/formulation changed at some point...

  1. I love having swatchfests, I feel so productive and it's great to know I get to enjoy a certain mani for a while since I don't have to worry about making posts.

    However, I absolutely loathe the ensuing madness of 100+ pictures to sort through and edit. I feel your pain, and I consider you brave.

    Flawless mani, as always :)

    Love this manicure though, it's a cute colour combination and design :-)
