Sunday's Facebook Challenge #8 Stamping + Tape

It seems like I haven't participated on the Facebook Challenge since years. Every weekend I was kind of busy or I forgot to participate, but for this weekends challenge I'm back with a great theme.

It's tape and stamping, two great things combined and I decided to go with one of my favourite themes. I am celebrating the NHL season, that finally started last weekend and so I went with a mani for my favourite team, obviously the Pittsburgh Penguins.

So I first used Micro Cell as a base coat and then I applied two coats of NYC Pinstripe White and the Technic Gold polish onto my nails.

On the thumb and ringfinger, I then used the tape and Technic Gold and on my pinky I used NYC City Blackout.

Thumb & ringfinger: Cheeky CH-8
Index & middlefinger: HB 41

Essie Where's my Chauffeur + OPI Pirouette my Whistle

When I saw the first swatches of Essie's Where's my Chauffeur, I wanted this colour badly. It is for my such a great tone, it reminds me of Tiffany's aswell as it let me think of spring and summer.

This green-turqoise shade is such a nice combination and goes with a lot of other colours. I got myself a bag and a scarf with similar shades to mix.

I used Microcell Repair as a base coat, 2 coats of Essie Where's my Chauffeur? and one coat of Sally Hansen's Insta Dry

I loved to see a glittery combination, so I decided after two days to add OPI Pirouette my Whistle and I think this is a great looking yet simple combination.
