POLISH DAYS: vintage


could this nail polish challenge be more up my alley? vintage is so my jam :P. for this edition of polish days, i wanted to emulate the look of heirloom opals passed down from a grandmother. oh, and vintage golden skeleton keys :).

 base color: sinful easy going
flakies: sally hansen complete manicure hidden treasure
gold stamping: maybelline color show metallic bold gold
image plate: mash 32


did it work? i like the effect, and i loove the key stamp! tell you what, these mash plates just keep getting better and better. sooo glad i purchased them. here's what my nails looked like pre-stamping-




sigh, i just love flakies over white. so elegant and shimmery. like i said yesterday, i accidentally ruined my bottle of easy going (silly me), so i don't have a bottle shot of that one :(. you can see a pic of it here, and the other polishes i used below-
