Stamping Saturdays: Easter Eggs-ish

I'm barely getting this post in before the day is over. It was a crazy day. I had to work an Easter Egg hunt today, which took up most of my day. Then when I got home, J surprised me with tickets to a Mets game, so off we went to that. It's been a long but fun day, so I'll keep this short and sweet.

I wanted to do an Easter-ish type mani, but more of an interpretation. I started off with a base of Habit Belle Epoque. Belle Epoque is a greyed out blurple type color. As my first experience with Habit, I enjoyed it. This was two easy coats with a great formula. My only problem is with the cap, it looks great, but makes applying the polish difficult because it's hard to hold. I wish the wood popped off and left you with an easier handle to apply with.



After letting Belle Epoque dry a bit I added a layer of Essie Shine of the Times. Over Belle Epoque, I really didn't get much of the green flash, but the pink flash added in that extra layer of fun.



Then I stamped on a pebble design from Winstonia W-112 with Konad White. I had a bit of a smudge happen on my middle finger, but over all I really like the look. Now that I'm staring at it more, I kind of wish I had done the stamp in silver. Oh well, live and learn. I think they look like cute speckled eggs, J says they look like Yoshi eggs, so I'm calling it a win.



I got good reviews on the new hand pose, so I'm going to try it out for a bit and see what I think. Happy Easter Everyone!!

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  1. Belle with the topped Essie reminds me of SC's Zeus so I like it. I like the speckled egg pebbles, cute as a button

    1. Thanks dear. I've never heard of SC Zues so I'm off to google it.

  2. I love the base color, but that cap would annoy the crap out of me too.

    1. The polish was awesome, but that cap made application annoying. It's a shame too because they have this awesome neon purple I'd buy in a heartbeat if I didn't have to put up with that cap.

  3. I think white was a good choice, silver may not have stood out enough over the flakies. These are more like glam Yoshi eggs :)

    1. Maybe you are right about the white/silver. I went back and forth deciding.
