Today's mani is another simple one; using just 2 base colors, 1 stamping design & color. I'm again using polishes I received in my September Cityscape collection from +Julep Maven. I was so excited about the colors in this collection that I had to use them immediately.


I did my usual alternating mani, but both hands are exactly the same; the deep grey polish is the main color & my index & ring fingers are my accent nails. Because I really liked how Reece looks, I decided not to stamp a design on my ring fingers.

Here's what I used:
  • Base coat: +OPI Inc Nail Envy - original
  • Base color: Daria by Julep (deep grey creme; 1 coat)
  • Accent color: Reece by Julep (purple duo chrome with green & fine holographic glitter; 2 coats)
  • Top coat 1: Seche Vite Top Coat - I apply this before stamping, if I mess up I can remove the design without removing the base color
  • Stamp colors: Silver Sweep by +Sally Hansen InstaDri (one of the best silver stamping polishes!!)
  • Top coat 2: IBD UV Top Coat cured under a 54 watt UV lamp for 5 minutes
  • IP: Cheeky Jumbo Plate 10: Happy Nails
