Snakes aren't holographic, are they?

Hi loves! How are you today? Almost Friday, do you have plans for the weekend? I am visiting a good friend and her boyfriend, she bought a house a while ago and we are checking it out! Also having dinner with them so that should be nice :).

Today I got a manicure I planned for a while now, but never actually wore before. I had seen manicures with holographic stamping and the minute I received Urban Outfitters Green Holo from Angie ♥, I knew I had to try it for stamping. It worked great!

I used Essence That's What I Mint! as my base as it seemed like the perfect pairing for the holo. I needed 2 coats. I've now worn this color twice and the formula is great to apply, but it wears so BAD. It chips within a day on me. Bummer! After it dried I used Bundle Monster plate 215 and Urban Outfitters Green Holo for the stamping. The result? Gorgeous ♥. At least that's what I think of it haha!

What do YOU think of this manicure?

    It turned out gorgeous!! *-*
    Unfortunatelly, I've been reading really bad things about the wear time of Essence's new formula...I only bought Miss Universe since they changed the bottles, and that chipped in less of a day, I didn't even have time to take some pictures. :S
    Not Good, Essence... -.-'

  11. Love this! I feel like I've stamped with this color too....but I can't remember, lol. Anyways, I love the look of stamping with holo's and this goes so well with That's What I Mint.....I think I've actually worn Green Holo and TWIM together now that I think about it. :)

  15. Essence chips within a day on me too. I love the colors and it's worth it for a $1 mani but I do wish it lasted longer. Such a pretty combo!
