Hi Girls, After a lot of pinks and reds for Valentine’s Day I am turning to other colors. So my pick today was Purple and I wore plain El Corazon Matte & Shine Range for a day. It’s a gorgeous matte shine polish, as you can see for yourself below.
After a day when I got bored of plain nails, I decided to do some stamping. I was too lazy to a double stamping or a gradient base or just anything. So I just picked a Pink from the same range and did a little bit of dry brush to get a hint of pink on places.
I am not sure but I think I killed the beauty and phunk of the purple base by doing so. Anyways, I proceeded for nail art. Whenever I want some delicate or intricate designs, I always turn to UberChic without fail. So I grabbed UberChic 06-03 for some cool intricate geometric patterns.
I stamped using Barry M Silver Foil which is one hell of a silver stamping polish for me. The nail art yet looked flat to me.
So to get on some elements I made dots of pink polish which did the trick. Now, it really looked more festive than geometric. A risky effort, that didn’t back fire; thank God!
I did not use any top coat on them, neither matte nor Seche Vite because they stole the grace of my nail art. I tried both on practice wheel but glossy would kill the frozen shine of purple and matte just mad the silver stamping dull cloudy. So I left it as it is and it rocked. What do you guys think? What do you do in a situation like this, when you base is matte and stamping polish is metallic?
