Polish My Life Muscat Martini and double stamping

Hi loves! Today I am showing you another lovely Polish My Life shade, I recently ordered 4 more but am waiting for those to arrive, so in the meantime I grabbed Polish My Life Muscat Martini to have some fun with ^^. I also couldn't resist another double stamping mani so I hope you enjoy ;-).

There are more pictures after the jump!

I have raved before about the cremes that Polish My Life creates. Shaneka somehow manages to make pastel creams that cover easily in 2 coats. For darker colors 2 coats isn't that odd but these light, white based shades aren't always the easiest! Also, the formula is good to work with. Even though Polish My Life Muscat Martini had some slight streaking going on at the first coat, the second one completely smoothed the surface.

For this particular look I used topcoat after putting on Muscat Martini and grabbed the MoYou London Pro XL 06 plate (yeah I know, I am getting boring...) and Konad white along with A-England Crown of Thistles to do the stamping. This double stamped look is so much fun and really adds some dimension to the look! To achieve it, simple do your first round of stamping, then rotate the plate 180° and do your second round of stamping. Also, if anyone has a recommendation of plates that qualify for this same technique, I'd love to hear! I need some versatility ;-).

After I was done with the stamping I used another layer of topcoat to seal in the design - the double coat of topcoat also made the wear of this a lot better for me. Since I type a lot I almost always have tipwear within a day, this was put for 2 days straight without any sign of tipwear!

  7. I like the 'pow!' of the purple stamping against the subtlety of the white.
