Some of my favorite things: Stamping and Glitter!

Happy Monday everyone! I have a pretty manicure for you today, and then also a life update. I’ll put the life update at the end so if you don’t care, no need to read the whole thing (please care! ๐Ÿ™‚ )! This manicure combines two of my favorite things: stamping and SPARKLES!

Glitter + stamping = happiness

Pretty! Actually it’s more than 2 of my favorite things, since there’s a teal base color and a glitter polish inspired by The Little Mermaid! So yeah, FOUR of my favorite things. ๐Ÿ™‚

Look at that glitter topper!

And a close up of my thumb (excuse how nubby it is – I was just traveling and it broke right off while packing!):

That glitter! So fantastic!

What I used:

  • Base color: Zoya Robyn… a gorgeous bright turquoise creme polish
  • Stamping plate: MoYou London Explorer XL 03
  • Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas 32 Reddish
  • Glitter topper: Ellagee Poor Unfortunate Souls… this topper is just crazy amazeballs. It’s a clear base with red hexesย and teal squares/ hexes/ microglitter. AND it’s inspired by Ursula from The Little Mermaid – how can you go wrong?! I bought 3 of Ellagee’s polishes from the new Villainous collection, and I definitely see myself buying a million more!

OK life update time! I am in my very last year of subspecialty training in the Neonatal ICU, and it’s that time to start looking for a job. So I just had my very first two job interviews! They both went really well, and I have a definite front-runner. They will probably let me know the deal by mid October, so keep your fingers crossed for me please!!

Have you tried Ellagee before? If not, you totally need to!
