Mani Monday: Zoya Sabrina

I got new nail polish in the mail! Yayyyyy! :)

You might say I'm a nail polish addict.

I do.  *hehe*

I can hardly resist it when I see awesome nail polish sales online.  Last week, I just couldn't resist the temptation when Zoya offered a "3 for the price of shipping" deal.  Yowza that's a deal!

So of course, I had to do a new mani when they came in the mail this weekend.

Unfortunately, I didn't have the best of luck with my first polish.  I picked Sabrina, a soft, barely pink color.  I didn't realize how sheer the formula was going to be.  (I think I got too excited about the sale and forgot to read the fine print.)  Womp womp.

That's three coats of Sabrina up there.... and you can still see my natural nail through it.  :/  I think I'll still use this polish as a base coat for a natural looking french tip, but it was not quite what I was expecting.  :(

I was, however, VERY proud of how my "I <3 U" stamp came out.  Cute, right? :)  I used a bundle monster stamping plate and Smokey Brown nail polish by E.L.F. Cosmetics.

So to recap:

What I used:
- Base color: Sabrina by Zoya
- Stamp: BM02 from Bundle Monster 2010 Stamping Plate Collection
- Stamp color: Smokey Brown by E.L.F. Cosmetics
- Top coat: Hardwear P.D. Quick Top Coat by Butter London

I know I'm jumping the gun a little on the Valentine's Mani, but I thought this color seemed to fit the theme and I wanted to get practicing on my stamping so that they're Perfect with a capital "P" for the real deal.

I hope you all had a lovely Monday!
