Have you watched Hamilton yet? If you haven’t, beg/borrow/steal a Disney Plus account and watch it. Even though I brought my son to see the touring version a few years ago, there’s nothing like seeing the original cast shine in their roles. Shortly after watching, I had the idea for Hamilton nails.
I was shocked to find that I had NO nail polish with black star glitter. I had silver and gold, as well as red, white and blue – but not black. I also didn’t have any black star decals. I then started raiding the kids’s stickers, nope. I sure as hell wasn’t going to try to paint stars freehand, but then I remembered the moYou London stamping plates that I got in Vegas all those years ago…
I didn’t have a plate with a single star, but one of the plates had a small grouping of stars, so I went with that one. I started with two coats of Sinful Colors SinfulShine “Nola Way” over Glisten & Glow Base Ridge Filling Base Coat. I stamped the stars over my nails and I was shocked that it worked better than I remembered. I’d been avoiding playing with stamping because it seemed too annoying before…but it was kind of fun. I even got cocky enough to try a little fairy stamp on my pinky.
I topped with Glisten & Glow Top Coat, which didn’t smear most of my nails. I must have stamped too heavily on the middle finger of my right hand (not pictured), because it looked like a cluster of shooting stars.
