This is manicure I did earlier last week. I had picked up two Sally Hansen Quick Color Pens (you know, those horrid click pens full of polish) in Green Chrome from Big Lots because I had heard that they were excellent for stamping. They were $1.50 each, and it was a fun little project to tackle.
I had read instructions online about how to dissemble them, but what I ended up doing was a bit more crude. In order to decant them into an empty bottle that I had laying around, I simply took a hot soldering iron and burned a hole through the top of the barrel. Burn, baby, burn. Hey, it worked!
As it turns out, the Green Chrome was phenomenal for stamping. It was thin, but very pigmented and transferred very well.
Here, I stamped using Plate XL C over LeChat Dare 2 Wear Enchanted Forest. Here's Enchanted Forest by itself.
I'll have a proper review of my LeChat polishes later on, but let me just tell you- this polish has instantly become one of my favorites. A gorgeous, ivy green jelly. Here, with two coats it is almost opaque- the splotchy patches on my pinky and ring finger come from the flash- you know how flash makes things look more translucent than they actually are. In real life, it looks absolutely perfect.
Take care, have a great long weekend (those of you that have Monday as a holiday, that is)!
By the way... small birthday giveaway coming up tomorrow. Nothin' fancy. Just a little sumpin' sumpin'.
