I've been feeling the chill lately and yesterday was a miserable wet winter's day and I expected the same today so I decided to do some wintery glitter nails this morning. Typically the sun then came out and it ended up being a fairly nice day but I still did my winter nails.
This is 1 coat of Lynnderella Love, Lace and Lilacs over 2 coats of Cult Nails Princess. Unfortunately this layering hid the pretty copper shimmer of Princess and I didn't get a photo before I added the glitter.
Then I stamped some snowflakes using my ENAS soft stamp and polish. I am a novice stamper, it's something I'm determined to learn, but I find the soft stamps pretty easy. Probably because you don't have to work quickly with them.
The snowflakes looked perfect until I added a top coat, then they smeared :( I waited until everything was completely dry, floated my top coat on so the brush wouldn't drag and tried several different top coats including the clear that came with the stamping polish.
Can anyone tell me what I did wrong please? Any recommendations for a top coat that wont smear? I really want to learn regular stamping but I need to find a way to finish my manicure that wont ruin the stamps.
We don't get snow in Sydney but I do have bean bag beans scattered around my laundry from the last time I washed the bean bag. It's the closest I'll get to snow this year.
