Rimmel Marine Blue and stamping





Here's Rimmel Marnie Blue... go ahead and stare.. it's worth it.I picked this one up at the CVS mega clearance sale for cheap! It is a really pretty teal with a shimmer to it.  This is two coats and a clear top. I stamped from my Mash plate using Konad white special polish. I've been wanting to use this bow design for a long time but just never got around to it until Marnie Blue was on my nails and it screamed for the bow! I had a dotting tool and Wet N Wild Through the Grapevine handy so I used that as the center of the bow.  I really love this bow design and I used it again for a holo (stay tuned for that!).This is also a great stamp for short nails because nobody says you have to put the bow at the tip of your nail, you could do it diagonally or even in the middle or vertical if you wanted to.

I do want to take a moment to mention the brush on this polish. It is flat and short, which is fine, however the bottle neck is VERY small so it feels like it barely fits into the bottle when I dipped it in.  I actually missed the opening once or twice and got polish on the outside of the bottle. I wish they'd fix this.  Sally Hansen's Lavender Cloud has the same brush and a bigger bottle opening and it's much nicer to use.

I could live with it for now though because the color and formula are really great.  Here's a close up of the shimmer for you, it's quite the pretty teal.
