For the manicure I started out with a base of El Corazon Poly Chrome 358, a gorgeous olive green shade that I fell head over heels in love with. Swatches of this beauty by itself are further down in the post.
I stamped my manicure using two Lily Anna stamping plates which are available from the Messy Mansion website. For the ring finger I used the Lily Anna 04 plate and for the rest of the nails I used the Lily Anna 03 plate. I thought it was fun that they both had the same water lily pattern, only in reverse.
The plates themselves measure 6 cm x 12 cm. This is the same size as MoYou London plates. The Lily Anna plates come with a blue protective plastic on the front of the plate which needs to be removed prior to use. In my excitement to play with the plates, I forgot to get a shot of them with the plastic, but I'm pretty sure by now you know what it looks like. The plates are bare metal on the back and do not have a paper or vinyl backing to them.
The full size images measure 15x20mm which is a great size. The images themselves are detailed enough to work for both shorter and longer nails. The plates are very well etched and stamp beautifully. I had no problems getting the images to pick up.
I used Essie Good as Gold from the Mirror Metallics collection for stamping. I recently purchased this collection for stamping and I have to say they all work as perfectly as I had hoped...
El Corazon Poly Chrome 358
An olive green shimmer. The formula on this is perfect, it applies easily and provides full coverage in just two coats. I was seriously mesmerized by this color. I just love the depth of the shimmer and the color itself. I know this beauty is definitely one I'll be wearing again! Swatches are with no top coat...
Ahh, just look at this beauty! The camera loved it too!...
