As pretty as this polish is on its own, it seemed to be begging for stamping, and I was happy to oblige.
Stamping polish = Sally Hansen InstaDri - Plummet

I had my eye on this polish for a while and finally picked it up on clearance.  However, the fact that it took 3 coats to get opaque was a disappointment.

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:
2
SOURCE:
avon.com; Sally Beauty Supply
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

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.
