Wet Cement and Butterflies

I did this mani yesterday morning and since then my boyfriend and I have been doing tons of spring cleaning so unfortunately this mani did not last long and is all chipped already :( While at Riteaid a couple days ago I picked up some more polishes. Yes I bought more and yes I need to stop. I couldn't help it because they were on sale but I will get to all of that in tomorrows post! Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Wet Cement was one of the colors that I picked up because I did not have a nice grey. I ended up really liking this color. As all of the Xtreme Wear polishes it goes on smooth and dries pretty quickly.

Here is a pic of Wet Cement by itself:

Then of course I had to stamp it because polish all by itself is boring to me.

 In the light box:

For this mani I used 2 coats of Wet Cement. I then stamped on the black flower design using plate M73 from the MASH  set and Wet n Wild Black Creme. I then stamped the butterfly from M20 of the MASH set using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Whirlwind White. I topped the whole thing with a coat of SV. 

On a little side note Black Creme is the best black that I have found for stamping! It goes on so dark and is really thick and creamy!! Also I got it at Biglots for $1 which makes it even better! The Insta-Dri polishes work very well for stamping but you have to be very quick or it will dry on the plate or on the stamper and won't transfer correctly to the nail. I am going to start a page about polishes that work well for stamping so if you have any polishes that work very well for stamping please let me know so I can add it to the list.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I don't really like grey much but I really like it with the black and white stamping!! Classic and fun!!

  2. Yeah I used to not like grey very much but is is a nice neutral color when you want the stampage to really pop!

  3. I have no grey and I really like the color of that one! Good thing I'm on my way to pick up Fairy Teal at Walgreens--what's one more color added to the list lol!
