Paisley & Lace Loja BBF Nail Art

Hey lacqueristas,

Happy hump day such as it is...I know we are all looking forward to the weekend especially if it brings some much needed warmth along with it!  What's crazy is that even though it snowed here the sunlight today was spectacular.  So awesome in fact that I decided to break out a holo and celebrate the sun along with my Loja BBF plates.  Remember you can read about my review of the Loja BBF plates here

You should already know from following me that there is no such thing as too much holo in my world.  I will say I've become more selective when buying simply because of the large abundance out there these days, but I still really love a great holo.  Today I decided to use Fancy Gloss Sparkling Rose.  This was a limited edition polish that released 2 weeks ago.  Its inspiration I guess is supposed to be Rose wine, however I didn't get the same blush I'm used to seeing in the wine.  Instead I got a very copper leaning color that blew me away!  The best part about this polish is it's practically a one coater.  Drying time on this beauty was also maybe 4 minutes total with topcoat!

Basecoat/Topcoat: CND Stickey / Sally Hansen Diamond Flash
Base color: Fancy Gloss Sparkling Rose (LE)
Stamping polish: Mentality Polish Temperance
Stamping plate: Loja BBF 18
Studs: Daily Charme

I also decided to break out my one and only Mentality polish called Temperance - this is a deep plummy red matte polish.  It actually stamped very opaque, matte, which I found fascinating, and transformed over Sparkling Rose to a deep brown color.  I am so impressed by this polish that I have a feeling I will be ordering a few more Mentality polishes soon.  I'm just waiting for her to release her version of the Leadlight polishes before ordering :)

So what do you think?  This is really not a very spring inspired mani, but when it's 20 degrees outside it's a bit hard to get there.  I am looking forward to some warm weather soon and I do have some spring nail art coming so don't fret, but sometimes it's nice to mix it up too!  You can find Fancy Gloss polishes here.  Loja BBF plates can be ordered via Cris on Facebook, and Mentality Polish can be found here.  Thanks so much for reading and see you next post!
