I decided to use a gel pen to add a touch more color to this mani after stamping, and really liked the end result.

Bonita - You Blue Me Away

COATS:
2
SOURCE:
Rite Aid
COMMENTS:
After applying base color, I dabbed some SC Snow Me White on each nail for a touch of background variation. I then stamped two separate patterns - first with the unnamed mini Icing polish and then with the Colour Alike. Topped it all off with CC Milion Dollar Listing for some shimmer.

Avon - Bare Necessity vs. Fingerpaints - Art History 101

COATS:

SOURCE:

COMMENTS:
I was trying to decide which of these to keep since I have so many neutrals. It turns out they're not as similar as I thought.  I believe I ended up giving away the Avon though.

Milani - Brisk Orange, Speed Up Pink

COATS:
1+
SOURCE:
Dollar Tree
COMMENTS:
Both these colors could be 1-coaters if applied carefully. I couldn't decide which one to wear first so ended up with both.

Still feeling like wearing green - this time I think I used the Bonita Salon color from the last mani as the stamping polish.

Bonita Salon - The Best Mint

COATS:

SOURCE:
Rite Aid
COMMENTS:
This gorgeous green is a 1-coater that also stamps. I scrunched up a piece of a napkin and used it to apply a bit of white polish over it and then stamped with black polish (Sinful Colors - Black on Black). I liked this so much I left it on for a conference and it still looked good after 6 days.

I've had this polish set for years and never got around to wearing the purple. I'm glad I finally did though, it's quite a lovely shade.
