I have enough polish now that sometimes I have trouble figuring out what to do (because there is so much I want to do – the struggle is real)! So, digging through my stash, I came across Sally Hansen – Copperhead, a gorgeous dark copper (almost more of a rust color) duochrome that pulls a bit purple and green at just the right angles. Even by itself it is really gorgeous for fall, but I wanted to step it up. On my nail message board, ladies had been talking about stamping with the Essie metallics and that made me remember how nice they stamp and voila!
I’m actually not a fan of the Essie metallics for actually painting my nails with. The formula is difficult and they dry so fast that it can start pulling up with too many strokes, making it very difficult to get the smooth metallic finish you’d expect with this polish. However, these polishes are pure awesome for stamping – it’s so pigmented that it is actually very easy to stamp with and goes on the nail beautifully.
- Essie – Grow Stronger Base Coat
- Sally Hansen – Copperhead
- Essie – Good as Gold
- Cici&Sisi – 23
- Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat
I think the combination of these two polishes is really lovely and perfect for fall and I obviously need to go diving through my stash more often!
