OPI - Ink Suede

Hello everyone,

Hope you're doing fine... here the October rainy day continues... I need to watch the calendar from time to time in order to reassure myself that we are really in July...

Today I'll be showing you one of the nicest polishes ever: OPI Ink Suede! This is suuuch a gorgeous polish!
While I think that its application is quite tricky, I think the results worth the pain ;) 
At first I applied 2 coats of polish, one on top of the other without an intermediate fast drying lacquer.. and it was a disaster! :) Just like all velvet polishes, this one was no exception in giving trouble with the application and major streakyness... It is then that decided to follow Liz's advice and apply a coat of Seche Vite in between the two polish coats.
So: one cot of polish, one coat of Seche Vite, then, the 2nd coat of polish.
I think it worked quite well, here are the pics:

After that, the "picasso mood" stroked me again :)
I applied a little bit of Zoya Faye on my tips...

And then added some Konad Stamping using Deborah - Yellow Fiz :) I know that the result is not very clear and neat as with using special Konad polish. And this is were I've decided that my next purchase will be some special stamping polish...

Thank you for watching!

See ya soon, everyone!
Hugs!!! <3
