American Classic California Copper

Never in a million years did I think I would actually like this color, but I do because it’s so rich and pretty! If you’ve read my previous posts about American Classic, you know that I am still trying to figure out where this phantom brand comes from. I haven’t given up, but I’ve just been too preoccupied with other things to really put in the time into making phone calls and such. Oh well…I choose to just enjoy the nail polish for now and worry about its origins later. The brush for this bottle was way wonky. Actually, it was the plastic stick that hold the brush that was deformed and somewhat bent. It didn’t really interfere with the application of the polish so it’s not a big deal.

Does this qualify as a frost? Normally I am not a big fan of frost finishes and rarely purchase them, but this one looked so different from anything else I own that I couldn’t resist. It almost makes me think of molten magma…I said almost, okay?

 

Here I used plate BM 313 with the black special polish. I have been a little annoyed lately because I have been messing up my stamping a lot. I don’t get it! I hate it when it gets all smudged. Since my nails aren’t too curved, I’m going to stop rolling the stamper and just stamp the crap out of my nail by just pressing down. Hopefully that works better.
It was so hot today. Ugh! My brother and I went to Red Robin for dinner (Yum!) and I got a grilled chicken caesar salad wrap…it was so good. I hadn’t had a wrap in a long time. and it really hit the spot.

 

The giveaway is ending in less than an hour…I can’t wait to see who will win. πŸ™‚

    1. Buyyy themmmm. Buyyyy themmmm!!!! (that's the polish ghost trying to scare you into buying them). You'll love em! πŸ™‚

  1. liquid hot magma? (Did anyone else immediately go to the Dr. Evil voice from Austin Powers when you read magma? LOL)

    1. It does change with the black on top of it for sure. I wonder why I like it so much if I don't particularly like chrome/metallic polishes?

    1. Tu vas les adorer! Merci chérie et bonne weekend aussi. Dis donc, je viens de me rendre compte que j'ai loupé to anniversaire. πŸ™ Envoie-moi ton addresse en MP sur twitter…j'ai un petit cadeau pour toi. πŸ˜‰

  2. If you like that one you'll love Essie Penny Talk. I wore it yesterday w some glitter tips and it was so pretty and now today I stamped w it and it worked perfectly for that too. And I called it molten copper so we're definitely on the same page. I like your stamping w it- I've been wanting to see that particular stamp, so thanks for that! πŸ™‚ Why don't you usually like metallics?

    1. I don't know why I don't like metallics. Well, actually I do. I think they magnify all the imperfections in my nails. I have very uneven nail beds and I don't like to buff the surface. I just started using a ridge filling basecoat from seche and it really does work. Also, I just feel like I have tin foil on my fingers when I have metallic colors on my nails.

      This stamp seemed kinda weird in the beginning, but I do like it!

  5. LOL! OMG, that totally made my day! Prior to seeing the hypno-graphic, I just saw the food and was like, "Damnit, she's going to make me want something again!" and you definitely called it, haha. There is a Red Robin near my house…hmm…
    I agree with Jessica that I like the polish better after you stamped it! It looks like a giraffe or like cobblestones (how those two very different things come to mind, I am not sure).
    And I totally heard the Dr. Evil voice!

    1. I seriously thought the same…giraffe/cobblestone. I think the giraffe thing comes from the colors.

      You know you want Red Robin now. LOL
