I really really want a zig a zig ahh..

Am I showing my 90's childhood by going with a Spice Girls Song lyric as the title? I challenge anyone from that era to a song off, I still know all the lyrics and I'm not ashamed to admit it. And also, that I might have that song in my iTunes library. Just saying...

Annnywhoo...so I have a super fun look to show you today. I really Spiced these girls up (see what I did there?) {FYI, I think I'm hilarious, you don't have too} with some stamping. Stamping is one of the easiest and quickest ways to add interest to a plain old manicure. I started off with a base coat of OPI's Japanese Rose Garden. This is a really pretty pink, although I have heard it described as a "grandma color." I'm not scared of grandma colors, I love all colors equally.


Japanese Rose Garden is a subtle pink, but still bright enough to pop on its own. It applies easily and is opaque in two thin coats. To add some interest I stamped on the zig zag design from my Bundle Monster plate BM208 in China Glaze Passion. 


Passion is the best gold polish for stamping out there. It is so easy to stamp with and gives great results. If you are looking for a great chrome gold polish to stamp with, I highly recommend this one. The pattern on this is subtle and hard to see/photograph. 


Here's another photo, this time with flash. It shows the pattern off a bit easier. I had four different people ask me if these were those Sally Hansen polish pattern strip thingys and how they applied/wore/lasted. Everyone of them was simply astonished when I replied with, actually I did these myself and that it was all polish. You must be doing something right, if people thing you used polish strips, right?


I love these colors together, it makes for such a great and classic look. 

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee
