My husband helped me pick out the color combination for this one. I knew I wanted to use Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Green With Envy but Brian picked out the hot pink color to stamp with and I love it! Very springy/summery. One coat of Orly Bonder Base Coat followed by two coats of Green With Envy. Then I stamped on this flower image from Shany plate SH16 using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Flashy Fuchsia. If you haven't already checked out my page above on my stamping polishes, you might want to take a look. Finally, I applied a floating top coat using N.Y.C. Longwearing Nail Polish in Extra Shiny Top Coat. Then things went sour.
You can probably see it the best in this picture above, but when I added the NYC Top Coat, it made tons of bubbles appear. The bubbling is the worst on my ring finger. I'm not sure why this happened. I didn't shake up the bottle or run the brush over and over the same spot. I will now be doing some experimenting to see if this is a consistent problem with this top coat or just a one time thing.
The great thing about this manicure was that it wore like titanium! I painted my nails Tuesday night and by Saturday morning, I had only minimal tip wear but NO chips! Finally by Saturday evening, the polish was starting to chip in a few places but that kind of wear is unheard of for me. It was almost worth all the bubbling because that was a particularly busy week for me and I didn't really have time to repaint. Again, I'll see if this is the top coat or just coincidence.
