As you will know, I wrote a bucket list for 2014 - things I wanted to achieve in nail blogging. One thing for me is to reduce (if not eliminate) my untried stash. I have so many untrieds, I honestly couldnt give you a certain number or even a realistic estimate. So I started today swatching some of them, so I hope you will check out the posts over the coming weeks.
Today is a freebie from a magazine - Kate Spade by Nails Inc - Soho Silver. I searched high and low for this silver, and it was only thanks to Rachel over at Monkey Nail Art who kindly found it and posted it to me that I ended up with it!
I don't think I have ever worn silver alone. This wasn't a nice experience to apply either. I had read that it was pretty watery - mine wasnt - mine was really quite thick formula wise. The first coat was however very sheer, but the second and third although they built up the opaqueness did not level nicely.
Once dry, I did like the shine - it was blinding! I will definitely try this again and see if I can apply more carefully for a smoother finish. I did also try it for stamping and found it stamps quite well! You'll see it used for stamping next week sometime!
What do you think? Do you have it? Do you prefer another silver?
