I first heard about the pretty, neutral polish that is Sinful Shine Prosecco. It is a nice light taupe with gold microshimmer but can be seen as greige in some lights. I have no Walgreen's close by me, so I actually had a nail friend that picked this up and shipped it to me. Shout out to Heidi! (@crooked_mani on IG)

The Sinful Shine line is a bit harder to come across since it was only carried by Walgreens until recently. Now I believe I've heard Walmart carries it as well, but I can't attest to that since I rarely shop at Walmart.
I had to wear it as soon as it showed up on my doorstep, so it became the mani of the night! This is three coats (it's a bit sheer in the first two coats) over OPI Nail Envy and topped with HK Girl Glisten & Glow topcoat.

I picked out a couple of reds for a nice fall look (even though it still felt like summer here in PA!). I used Zoya India for my ring and pinky fingers, and China Glaze Santa Red My List (shit, it could have been Just Be Claws... damn I forget) and Essie Penny Talk for multi-colored stamping on my index and middle fingers.
I used my Bundle Monster plates with my BPS XL Squishy stamper to stamp the quatrefoil design and leaves. I also broke up with my BM plates shortly after this. Aye yay yay... I was so over it by this point.
They are called my BM plates for a reason: they stamp like shit. They are not etched deep enough so I kept either scraping all of the polish out of the image, or I ended up with streaks because I didn't scrape hard enough.
Oh yeah, I also broke up with my HK Girl G&G topcoat. It was a rough night for me! I still have about a quarter of the bottle left and it was so goopy it was almost solid. Adding thinner did nothing.
But... I trudged through and finished this mani with full intentions to pull the trigger on some new Cici&Sisi plates in the morning. And I did! I got the first set, which you can purchase on Amazon here. Let me tell you, it is so worth the $30!! You'll see in my manis to come. =)
What is your favorite brand of stamping plates?
