Before & After: Spellbound Nails Late Bloomer + UberChic Beauty 6-03 (or, soft sammich)

(Press sample)

Hello!

I love a good stamping sandwich, and the recent spring collection from Spellbound Nails just calls out for them!

For this one I started with Spellbound Nails Late Bloomer, a soft orange jelly with gold flecklets:

As I put on layers of luscious squishy jelly, I stamped with the dandelion-like images from UberChic Beauty 6-03 with Barry M Cotton:

I alternated the images so that the smallest were on the index and pinky, and were under the most layers of polish; I put the biggest flower on my ring and thumb on the very top of the polish, and the middle-sized flower under one coat of polish on my middle finger. Here's how it turned out:

And check this out! Late Bloomer is a glow-in-the-dark polish--look at how this mani looked in the dark:

How cool is that?!?!?!

I love this mani--there's something so wispy and feminine about it. What about you, are you a fan of stamping sammiches?

Happy stamping,
M.

  1. So soft and Spring-like! Beautiful. So a 'sandwich' is like a pond mani? I love those!

    1. Thank you so much! People were calling them stamping sandwiches before pond manis, except that I think some people use 'pond mani' for just dots between the layers. In short--I have no real clue, lol!

  4. This is the collest ever. Love this look and the fact it glows in the dark is the icing on the cake (or nail in this case) Beautiful job <3
