Double up the stamping!

Sunday, August 24, 2014

From my last post you saw a whole bunch of swatches from the Barry M matte collection, that is where the base colour of this manicure comes from. 

It is BM's Vanilla, a matte greyish purple which looked like it needed some colour to it. I started wondering whether stamping different colours on top of each other would work without it looking too tacky and overcrowded so using Color Club’s bright nights, an electric blue and Color Club’s In theory, a nice coral to stamp on the leave design from plate BM 208. 

I personally feel that CC’s bright nights stamped on alone looks good but then it also looks as if it’s lacking something. When both polishes are stamped over each other, it fits, but there’s also something a little odd about it. It might be the contrast between both colours with bright nights overpowering the coral which made me feel unsure at first. It grew on me eventually though.   

The whole design was left matte except the ring finger nail where I wanted to show the difference if I had decided to go all glossy. If bright nights was the only colour stamped I would’ve left it matte but for the overall design I’ll have to go with the glossy version.

Which do you prefer? The matte or glossy version? Single or double stamping?
