- Reusable opal white gel base with a little Covergirl’s Outlast “Goldilocks” sponged on top.
- Stamping Polish:
Mundo de Unas’ “Dark Grey”
- Advanced Stamping Polishes:
China Glaze’s “Classic Camel”, Covergirl’s Outlast “Goldilocks”, L’oreal’s “Walk on the Beach”, Sinful Colors’ Demi Matte “RADiant” and “Whiteboard”, Sinful Colors’ “Bright Lucite”
- Stamping Plates:
Born Pretty BP-134 (hen) and BP-L065 (plate w/fork), Bundle Monster BM-301 (radiant stripes), Harunouta 12 (eggs), les Cool-02 (“I <3 Mom")

Chickens should get to stroll around the yard and eat bugs, feel the sun on their wings and get scritches from the humans who are raising them. I’d love to raise my own, but my husband would prefer we didn’t even own pets, so…
