Gelish Deep Sea with stamping two ways

Keeping with the same idea of of gel polish with varying themes.  Here I used Gelish Deep Sea.  I have to say that I am a bigger fan of Gelish than Shellac.  I love Shellac but Gelish color variety just can't be beat.  I didn't take a picture of the Deep Sea on it's own because I don't really love the color by itself. I went right for a stamp.

I used Cheeky CH16 with Color Club's Lumin-icecent.  Looks like cute silverish flowers.  The color stamped great on the navy.

After a day of this, I wanted to change it up.  Even with a metallic base polish, removal was a breeze with non-acetone remover.  Next up......

Same Gelish Deep Sea base, this time I stamped on top with Cheeky CH7 and Milani Violet Dash.  Again, stamped beautifully.  Finished it off with some purple rhinestones to bring out the purple color even more.

I like the second look better but that is the purple fan in me.  The thing I love the most.....versatility and, the fact that I screwed up on the stamp because I was not quick enough and I just had to wipe it off and redo.  Never have to worry about messing up your basecoat.


  1. I haven't used either Gelish or Shellac..I like to change my polish too often! I think its a pretty blue and I love both sets of stamping! :)

  2. I love both the designs but second is definitely my favorite.

  3. LOVE the second! So cool with the rhinestones!

  4. These are so pretty!!! :D

  5. Love both but I do agree the second is ust that little bit more awesome. =)

  6. both manicures look nice, but the second one is my favorite, love it :-D
