Sorry for having been MIA for so long; I had caught a bad bug and was kinda busy fighting it... But today's a happy day, for my Japanese friend celebrates her birthday! Since I haven't seen her in ages, I thought I'd do a mani in her honour.
I used BP-78 for this, which I also used here last week. I stamped with BP magenta stamping polish over Rimmel "Sweet Retreat". This all seemed to go perfectly, until I applied top coat over it. See how the background design looks all blurry in some places? I thought: "What the bleep?!" I checked whether there was residue on my top coat brush, but nothing. So it wasn't smearing. It couldn't have been! But what then? I didn't know until I looked at the macro:
See how the stamping polish has changed colour? How it got all weird and light in some places, especially around the edges and where the polish is thin? I will report this problem to BPS, so they'll be able to fix it. I haven't had this problem with any other of their polishes!
Anyway, after the background design, I stamped again, with Konad black. I didn't apply top coat, so it's nice and satin against the glossy background.
Have you ever experienced anything like this with a (stamping) polish? I'll try the polish again, with a different top coat, but this is all for now! Happy birthday, my friend!
