Guest Post by Very Emily: Minty Stamping

Please enjoy the following post from my friend Emily!

--

Hi everyone! My name is Emily and I run the blog Very Emily. I'm kind of fangirling to be guest posting for Kellie today, she was one of the very first blogs I started following way back when her blog was still called Also Known As... I think we started blogging around the same time so I'm proud of us both for still being around after such a long time!

I wasn't quite sure what to create for my guest post but ended up feeling inspired by some nail art I spied on the Pet'la Plate Facebook page. I ended up with something slightly different but I really loved the concept so I had to recreate something similar!

I started with Icing Mintage as my base, a gift from my friend Deborah (Love Varnish) who brought this back for me from NYC. We don't have this brand here, which is a shame because I loved this polish! Then I stamped over it with a diagonal stripes image from Pet'la Plate Loomy Sunday using Mundo De Unas black and white stamping polish. Finished it with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat. While they didn't turn out perfect I loved how these looked from a short distance. So unusual and almost 3-dimensional looking.

Hope you like them Kellie and thank you so much for having me!

Shleee Polish Maud Pie Swatch & Review

Hey there you pretty thing! Today I wanted to show you a cool indie glitter polish from the brand Shleee Polish. It's run by my internets friend Ashley, she is like uber cool. Her polishes are super glittery and fun and usually have a theme. This polish is called Maud Pie, which is a character on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic the animated series! I love that show and I love her interpretation of the character into a polish.

Maud Pie has a clear base with matte grey, lavender, purple, and teal glitters, metallic silver and lavender glitters, and holographic micro glitters. There are different shapes of glitter in there, I see hearts, triangles, circles, hexes, stars, and diamonds, oh my! I layered two coats over a white base. The glitter is dense so it's a bit thick but it wasn't hard to apply. I did have to place some of the glitter bits with my brush though.

As it looks now, there is only one bottle available of this polish in Shleee Polish's shop so RUN if you want it! I don't know whether she restocks sold out colors or not. Her polishes cost $10 each and she sells via Etsy. Have you ever tried this brand before? Do you love My Little Pony Friendship is Magic like I do??

Bye friends!
