Streaks of Blue and Styx

Last week started off with a Blue Streak mani, Ulta Blue Streak that is. I topped it with Milani Teal and then stamped it using Bundle Monster 310. It was part of a challenge to stamp on a glitter. Not too much of a challenge as I'll stamp on anything :)



We ended the week at a Styx concert. On the advisement of others, I used a base of the silver polish shown, the Orly Luxe. Stamped it using DRK-B and Konad M64 (DH chose this plate). I added a top coat of Out the Door Northern Lights.


I had planned to take it off quickly, so I used a glue base. :) It worked. I don't think I will use it often as I did see one of my nails peeling a tiny bit even though I had moisturized them really well before hand, and the glue didn't seem completely dry even though the polish was! lol It's still interesting to see.


Have you tried the glue base yet? Did yours peel?
Have a great day!

    1. Styx - they were great!!! We've seen John Mayer, Journey, Pat Benatar and Loverboy.
      Styx, far and above presents better. Tommy Shaw seems ageless onstage. Chuck Panozzo was even there for part of the show.
      Thank you!!!
