Silver mermaid

Hello loves! TGIF! Today's post will be a short one because I'm really tired and not very talkative at the moment. You guys might know by now that I love subtle stamping. This is a manicure I did when my Cheeky plates first arrived. I was wearing OPI Mermaid's Tears so I quickly picked two stamps I liked and slapped them on. I sure loved the result! 

I used plates CH16 for the accent nail and CH5 for the rest of the fingers. The stamping polish is a-england Excalibur. You might have noticed I use this polish a lot and that's because it stamps amazingly. I won it in a giveaway on Marisa's blog and I'd like to thank her again for it! I tried to take pictures of it swatched 2 times but I wasn't happy with them at all. My photos show all the streaks that are not visible in reality. So I think this one will remain unswatched on my blog. There are several posts about it on famous blogs so you can google those. It's an amazing polish, opaque in one single coat and very durable on the nails. 

I really loved this manicure and I was sorry to take it off. I just love Mermaid's Tears so much! It's definitely one of my top 10 polishes if not even one of the first 3. It's also very special because of the trouble I had when I was trying to get it.  So what do you think about this mani? Are there any polishes that are special to you for some reason?
