Your Oldest Untried
Today's nail challenge is your oldest untried. That was an easy one for me. For some reason, I have one nail polish that I bought ages ago and never used. If I had to guess, I would say I probably bought this in the spring or summer of 2012 but it may even be older than that because I think around that time, Essence changed the shape of their bottle. Anyway, it's old, LOL.
This is my oldest untried polish, Essence Colour & Go in Walk of Fame. It's an amazing greige creme, with an awesome formula that makes me a little sad that I waited so long to use it because it was just so easy to apply! And the perfect neutral shade! This is two coats of WoF over Orly Bonder with a top coat of NYC Grand Central Station.
After that, I wanted to do some fun nail stamping. I stamped on the leopard print from Bundle Monster plate BM221 with Essie Good As Gold. After stamping, I filled in the dots with a dotting tool and Wet N Wild Wild Shine Black Creme. I even did my right hand by myself! It turned out looking okay, mostly because the dots didn't have to be perfect to look good. I topped it all off with another coat of NYC Grand Central Station.
I like the final product but I don't love it. It's pretty hard to compare with how much I loved my floral mani though!
