Base Color: Nicole by OPI Show You Care
Stamping Color: Essie Nothing Else Metals (YES, the Essie metallic polishes stamp well)
Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster BM-310
NOTE: I wore the purple polish by itself for a day and then added the stamping. So there’s a bit of tip wear visible in the photos. :)
Sometimes right before I take off polish, I do a bit of stamping. I do this for the following reasons:
- It’s great for testing out different stamp designs. This design was hard to stamp because you had to get the placement just right.
- Testing out different top coats over stamping. Essie Good to Go and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri smear the stamping, while Seche Vite is perfect still.
- If I like how it turns out, I stretch the manicure a couple more days.
So, this is what I did tonight. Although, I’ll be taking it off soon…
Happy Sunday, all!
I have a simple yet striking manicure for you today. When I first saw the BM-319 plate in the new 2012 Bundle Monster pack, I really wanted to try this design using black and white. I think it’s just so modern looking. :)
Anyhow, enjoy! I also filmed the manicure as well. :)
