Chrome Binary…

I have a new love….OPI “Push and Shove”! It’s just amazing, all the swatches you’ve seen, they don’t lie! It’s is the most chromeyest (yes that’s a word!) polish ever!!!! Kathy from More Nail Polish has done a very thorough review, in which she compares it to Layla chrome, top coats it and stamps with it. So please check out her swatches. I have used it today to recreate a look I was never happy with….my technology post.

I have stamped over the top with BM-415 creating exactly the look which I had in mind. I have always wanted nails that looked like they had been chrome plated, so you can see my excitement at this polish. I agree with Kathy it is hard to apply or so you think, but once it is dry (which is very quickly) it all levels out to the most beautiful shine. When I was experimenting, I did apply top coat to some of the nails later and I could see no noticeable difference to the finish.

I also learnt about stamping…..I’ve been doing it wrong! I usually just press lightly down on the image, but with this stamp the middle was not picking up properly. I tried for hours and then I remember seeing a tutorial where the stamper is rolled across the plate. It took me awhile to get the hang off, but when I did, each time the binary code was picked up perfectly! Also check out Copycat Claws post, where she uses “Push and Shove” to create a broken mirror effect….. amazing! I think this polish should be named “Rise and Shine” though.
