I purchased the turbo stamper (or as I call it, the “Big-Ass Stamper” or #BAS) from Jolie Polish months & months ago, but I didn’t have a blog at the time so I couldn’t write a proper review. I did flap my gums a bit in an Instablog review for the Wizard of Oz mani that I did, which can be found here.
Lawd chyle, this thang is huge. As you can see, it’s about four times the size of an XL stamper from Fab Ur Nails, about which I wrote this blog review.

I spent seven months searching for a graphic artist/designer to create my new BravesDiva brand image.
Y’all. Seriously. Seven damn months. (7!)
As expected, everyone to whom I reached out charged $60-$100/hour. Umm thanks but no thanks. Even though I knew *exactly* what I wanted my logo to look like, and figured that there would be minimal work involved for an experienced GA, I couldn’t swing a $300-$400 invoice. #BallinOnABudget

*side bar* If you don’t care to read the entire saga of how my love affair with designer Elise de la Rue came to be, and how Facebook tried to come between us, feel free to scroll to the bottom of this post for all of her contact info.
I’ve always adored my BravesDiva image and I’m very attached to it, but if/when I get to the point where I’m makin’ money off’a my brand (soon, I hope), I can’t very well do it while incorporating the logo of a professional sports team.
Most nail artists prolly have a liquid latex product in their arsenal, and more than likely they’ve tried more than one brand. I already have a favorite latex that I use in my messy nail art designs, but when I discovered Nail Experiments (NE) on Instagram, I was intrigued. I mean, lookit these pritty colorrrrrrrsssss! *heart eyes emoji*

A few weeks ago when I was traveling home from vacation, I saw an Instagram post from NE advertising a 15% off code for Easy Peel (EP) that was good until midnight of that night. It was 10 p.m. & I was on a road trip from hell with nothin’ better to do in the car but shop. Duh.
Even though I have a latex that I adore, it’s not yellow. And, by gawd, I wanted a yellow one. Yellow is the color of happiness, amirite?
I bounced over to the NE website, happily selected my happy yellow (there are 15 colors — FIFTEEN! — from which to choose, btw…) & happily threw that bad boy into my cart. But at some point during the checkout process, I got an error message that said “The yellow Easy Peel can’t be shipped to the U.S.” Whaaaat? Nooooo! This sucked the happiness right outta me. So I ran back to the IG post & told Elena about the ordering snafu. Continue reading “Review of Easy Peel Latex Barrier By Nail Experiments”
