Shiny on Matte

Nearly Nude

Shiny stamping image over matte base coat:  I keep seeing lovely examples of this look. braver girls often stamp the same colour over the matte top coat, I am stamping with a slightly darker nude.

I loved the way this manicure turned out.  My only complaint is that it did not last long enough. I wore the mani over a busy few days, and without a top coat, the stamping image began wearing away at the tips, and by day three, the contrast between matte and shiny had disappeared completely.

Base colour: Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine, Lychee
Stamp colour: Max Factor Max Effect Mini, 21 Soft Toffee
Image plate: Konad m89
