Aqua and Pink Swirly Stamped Manicure

This may be one of my favourite stamps from Born Pretty Store, which is why it shows up in so many of my manicures. The swirly, ethereal starry stamp is so enchanting, I just can’t stay away from it. I started out with three coats of Billie Aqua. It’s a pretty opaque polish, but I […]
