Saturday Stamping: Hidden City Lagoon

Purchased By Shelby Lou 

Oh Em Gee what a week at work. I ended up doing five hours of "unplanned overtime." I'm always torn about overtime. Like, yay OT pay! But also, boo.... more work. It has just been a rough couple of weeks that have left me emotionally exhausted, which also physically exhausts me. I've been painting nails but have had no energy to photograph and share them. Ah well. Here is a mani I did earlier in the week which I saved for today!

I am calling this look Hidden City Lagoon. I started this mani with a base of Aliquid Lacquer Hidden City--I shared a macro on instagram which you totally need to check out because it is amazeballs. This was my first experience with Aliquid Lacquer. This treasure was sent to me by my buddy Gio from @injeebwetrust. She knows me well! Besides being an amazing deep teal linear holo, it also has copper and gold shimmer. Holoshimms all the way! I apologize for the major lobster hands in my photos, you know I don't do much color editing though. The polish is true!

After a couple days I decided to stamp it with a new plate I just purchased from MoYou London, Doodles 07. Such an adorable plate! I slapped on some images I liked but took care with my lil turtle, how cute is he?! I used Essie Good As Gold, a fantastic gold metallic stamper.

I thought I could still further improve this mani and busted out my new Zoya Frida. I purchased the jelly trio from the Zoya Earth Day sale and I am so pleased I did. Just one coat of Frida and I had a lovely little Lagoon.
