Welcome & Essie's Raise Awareness

Welcome to my blog, Stamp 'n' Polish. I decided to start this blog, as I always got my nails did, at the salon. But recently, due to work, I can no longer get my acrylics, so I found an alternative, buying polish, and painting my nails on weekends. I've always had a huge collection, but never got round to actually using them all. My toes would be perfectly lacquered up, regardless of the season, even in the freezing London winters, because I still see my toes. ;o) I can't stand bald toe nails.

Essie's Raise Awareness: 3 coats

Anyways, my first blog will be review Essie's Raise Awareness polish. This polish is for Breast Cancer Awareness 2011. So, thought I'd get this in before the month is up. I love the colour. It's a beautiful bubble gum pink, and has a creme finish. However, the only downfall is it is very streaky, I had to apply 3 coats to get the opacity. I'm really impatient, and like polishes which are really pigmented and only needs 1 or 2 coats, because I hate sitting around waiting for polish to dry.  Excuse the untidiness, I was in a rush to go out.

I hope you all enjoy and hopefully see you again soon.
