AIS - Light Stamping Over A Dark Base

This week's theme for Adventures In Stamping is Light Stamping over a Dark Base. This was a perfect opportunity to use one of my untrieds, a dark blue, for the base.





Polishes Used:
-OPI - Nail Envy
-L'Oreal - After Hours
-Sally Hansen - Magical - Fairy Dust Pink
-BM-306

After Hours is a dark blue, almost black polish, which obviously makes for the perfect "dark base". I had been wanting to stamp with a holo polish for a while so I selected the "light" color, Fairy Dust Pink. This one actually more purple than pink, but that's ok; either way its a nice color. I didn't add a top coat to the photos because I didn't want to ruin the linear holo effect, but I did add one later to keep the mani on longer. 

I never really liked holo polish, but its growing on me, and I actually like it for stamping, and lots of makers are creating beautiful holor creations, so you may be seeing more of it on me this year. :)
