Damask Stamping on Zoya Pixie Dust Sunshine

Hello Sugars, I have been waiting eagerly to try out each polish from my last haul of Zoya and Starrily before I get bored of seeing them in my wardrobe and they touch the dust of ‘Untrieds’. The first polish I picked was Zoya Pixie Dust ‘Sunshine’. I love Zoya polishes as well as their cute bottles.

Though there is one thing I am confused about , why did they name a blue polish- Sunshine? I was expecting something yellow or atleast super bright; anything but blue. Anyways, that does not reduce the beauty of polish. It is lovely dark dusty blue with silver shimmers. The polish of course is textured like a Pixie Dust is supposed to be. The polish dries up textured, gorgeous and matte.

I was quite confused on what to do over it. I could not use acrylic paints for freehand because if I did so, I would have to apply a Top Coat to protect it. This would have definitely killed the essence and finish of textured polish. So I needed to stick to polish only. I am horrible with tapes so that option also blew out.

The only option I had was stamping. Now the next question what could I possibly stamp on this gorgeous base so that the show of the base polish isn’t stolen. And which colour to stamp with that could show up on this base? I tried Konad special pink but it died out on the base, just very faded.

My husband suggested white but I am so done with white stamping over everything. And I wanted something to blend and look like a part of the base not like a super contrast. Then he told Silver and my eyes got stuck on Barry M silver Foil sitting in my stash.

I quickly picked up the polish and a damask pattern from Pueen Buffet to stamp. I knew the image had to be bold enough to show. And I think the choice was wise. I love the nail art and silver looked married to the base.

      Yes, you are correct..I have noted that dese patterns look good on textured, I have accumulated so manu textures with least idea on what to do with them…stamping with such patterns looks like a good option.
