Another awesome PINK WEDNESDAY!!! And on Wednesday’s We Wear Pink! I will confess however, that I wore this manicure last Wednesday when I went to pick up my cousin Kamil at the airport. He is visiting my family and I for a month Now onto the pinkness…
… A while back during a routine stop at Suzy Shier (I really like this store for the affordable and really neat costume jewellery), I stumbled upon a display of L.A Girl nailpolishes. Each shade retails for $5.00 or you can buy two for $8.00. Having never tried this brand I asked the sales Ladies if they had a chance to play with the polishes and they both said that they were very surprised with the quality of this brand… well I wasn’t just going to take their word for it, I had to test it out myself. I decided to bring Dainty home with me.
Dainty is a peachy cream that required three easy coats to achieve full opacity. While I did notice a bit longer drying time, I was able to excuse that for the finish which contains silver miniscule micro-shimmer. Indoors this shade looks like a muted milky pink; outdoors, in sunlight, it picks up a bit more on the peachy-orange. I don’t know why I didn’t have a shade like this before!? I will also add that I wore this manicure for over three days and the polish lasted with only one minor ding (for me this is really good); which speaks well for a cream polish IMO; I will definitely pick up a few more shades from this collection.
I first stamped all of my nails with BundleMonster plate #209 and Revlon Espresso. Espresso is a deep brown thick cream polish with silver macroshimmer. I’m not sure whether it was the stamp, the TopSpeed Revlon polish, or a combination of the two but my stamper didn’t want to pick up the whole image… I really struggled with this one, and in trying to rush the spread-scrape-stamp-transfer process I didn’t stop to allign the stamp properly on my nails; the result being very close to a FAIL. I tried to save the ‘ooops-spots’ by using Konad plate m57 (selecting only two of the three flowers on the image); and then fishing for glitter in SOPI Traffic Stopper Copper. I wish that the stamping didn’t have so many flaws because it really was a pretty manicure combo IMO… from far away it looked nice …

And lastly I want to share a photo of my oldest, Olivia, that Peter took while we were at the cottage… this is one of my favourites from their daddy-daughter photo shoot, but you can see more on Peter’s blog by clicking here.
