So I'm on Instagram now (hit up @mommydoeshernails), and the addiction has it's claws in me. Following Steph @imperfectpaint may prove to my downfall....she posted one morning about a new brand called Tea Beauty she had just found at Walgreens and the next thing I knew I was grabbing the bag off the beauty counter and taking my receipt from the lovely lady who helped check me out.
So I got two of the six pretties: Tea Beauty Vanilla Petals and Tea Beauty Mint Leaf. Yummy names for yummy smelling nail polishes. Yes they are scented. Hubby, though greatly weirded out about smelling my nails, said the smells were definitely pleasant. He doesn't get the point of it and, to be honest, neither do I.
So I am in LOVE with the light caramel colored nude that is Vanilla Petals. I love the white based baby blue Mint Leaf too but Vanilla Petals has my heart in these two.
These swatches are two coats each. The formula isn't the most amazing but totally workable and builds, as you can see, in two coats. Self levels for the most part as well. The blue won't get a ton of use but the nude. Yes I know I said it over and over. LOVE IT!
These retail for 4.99 at Walgreens and I'm not sure if they can be found elsewhere.
So onto the disaster part of this post. I tried stamping with these. They are not for stamping:
