For my mani today, I decided I wanted to do something a little different. I started with a base of Qtica Natural Nail Growth Stimulator and a coat of OPI Nail Envy. My base polish is Bear Pawlish Sacrifice. Sacrifice is a stunning silver polish with a strong linear holo and holo micro glitter scattered throughout. It is a very smooth polish and I had no trouble controlling it when polishing. It is greatly pigmented so you could get away with one coat and it would be fully opaque, but I used two coats for this mani.

Sacrifice dries quickly and to a shiny finish. I love the holo micro glitter in this polish. This is no boring silver polish, oh no. This polish has pizzazz!

I topped Sacrifice with Bear Pawlish Oso Quick, which is her new Four-Free quick drying topcoat. I used a generous amount and had no shrinkage issues. Oso Quick dries very shiny and doesn't dull holo at all.

I decided to stamp with my Pet'la Calaveras plate, which is chock full of sugar skull images and I love them all!! I just wish they would completely fit on my nails. I could shrink them, but I definitely need to practice that more.

I stamped using MPolish Baroque, which is a rosy metallic, and Elizabethan, which is a chocolate brown metallic. I alternated the colors on my fingers, and stamped with both on my thumb. Both Baroque and Elizabethan are wonderful to stamp with. I had no issues with them drying too quickly, and they both provided full coverage with no bald spots.

Since there is a lot of open space in these images (and come on, they are sugar skulls!!), I figured these skulls needed some COLOR! I lead lighted with three polishes from In The Name Of Polish's Hard Knock Life neon jellies collection. I also accidentally stamped a skull upside down on my Cindy hand, so I went with it and stamped all of them the same way on Cindy. That way I can enjoy this mani myself! ;-) The cute hand pose I used below is inspired by IG@SloppySwatches (she's got a YouTube channel as well, check her out!).

Below you can see the multicolored stamping I did on my thumb nail with MPolish Baroque and Elizabethan. And whoops, my lead lighting was a bit sloppy...

And I couldn't let you go without a sun shot of Sacrifice! This polish is gorgeous in sunlight!!
