The fail that turned into a success... and another birthday :)

Hello all!

Today's my sister's birthday woooo! LOL Her favorite color is purple so I knew I had to do a purple mani!! I've been wanting to try a matte shiny mani with stamping plates but I didn't think it would actually work, then the other day a blogger, forgive me I can't remember their name, did one and it looked so beautiful! But she said she had to play with the top coat polish because some wouldn't work. I sat down today and got ready to try it then BAM super fail :( None of the top coats I own worked , I even tried to do it with my matte top coat and nothing! So instead of stopping at this failure I whipped out my holo top coat because I mean... everything is better holo-ified ;) I'm really loving how these turned out! 


Colors used:
- ELF Violet Velvet
- Hits Hefesto








Mmmmm holo!!! :)
Look at that holo! LOOK AT IT! O.O lol sorry I get a little carried away ;)

I used BM-201 for the stamp and I have to say I really don't want to ever take this off! I like it way more then I thought I would!

So the lesson here is: even when everything you do fails... don't give up! Because you could be one fail away from one of your all time favorites! :) 

So what do you guys think?

And as always... thanks for reading! :)

    1. Awwww thank you so much! And she says thanks too :D Hits Hefesto is the holo I used it's considered a holo top coat... Hits has a line of holos that all look SUPER beautiful but at 10 dollars a whack I decided to go for the top coat so I could holo-ify everything ;) But the line is called something like Hits Specialita No Olimpo.... I probably just spelled everything wrong but it's along those lines haha! And I'm totally going to check you post now >>> :)

    1. Thanks!!! You know what I say... everything is better holo-ified!! :) And you should totally get some stamping stuffs! :) I only have the bundle monster plates but as far as I know they are the most cost friendly... I'm hoping they're going to put out a 2013 set soon! :)
