#StampingSaturday: Run Away with Me

ITS THE WEEKEND!!!!! I've never been more excited. Life has been insane at work this week and it is FINALLY over. 

My #StampingSaturday look started with a base of Essie Tuck in my Tux. Never in my life have I been more disappointed by a polish. In my mind a white jelly polish sounded awesome. However, after 3 coats, there is no leveling this sucker out. It's patchy and just weird. 




Because the base was ugly, I naturally decided to stamp over it. I used Mundo de Unas Holland Blue and Uber Chic plates 1-01 and 2-03 for this look. I'm totally in love with the waves paired with the seahorses.




I swear the crispness of these MdU polishes blows me away everytime. Have you been dreaming of running off lately? Where would you go? Be sure to check out all the other stamped looks below!

Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  7. Disappointing about the Essie, but I always have that problem with their stuff for some reason. Sometimes it levels out with top coat, but not all the time. The stamping saved it! beautiful!

    1. Essies are hit or miss for me. This one even reacted weirdly to the topcoat.

  13. White jellies are just so tricky! But they always end up photographing better than they really look. :/ If I could get some time off I would prefer to stay home - no running off for me!
