Holographic Stamping Because Why Not?

Stamping with holo polishes has been around for a while and in my slow fashion, I just got to try it out. The original plan was to create a tone-on-tone mani but as most of my plans, it went out the window when I realised I only have two holos, one black and one silver, and the black one was calling my name. I'm pretty happy with the resulting mani so I'm about to photo-spam you.

I started with two coats of CoverGirl's Constant Caribbean, swatch included at the bottom of the post, and used the scaly/feathery pattern (is that what this is?)  from the BM-410 plate to stamp with Ozotic in 528. I topped it all of with a coat of Seche Vite.


Of course, the photos were going to be taken out in the sun to show the holo particles. You can sort of see the linear holo effect that 528 would normally have. 


Excuse the dirty cuticles, the black holo was really hard to clean up!




I took some photos in the lightbox and I was happy to see there were some rainbow coloured particles from the holo. Nothing impressive but they could still be seen.


This is Constant Caribbean by itself and even though this is a gorgeous colour, the formula is very streaky so it seems to be a good base for stamping.


That's all from me today, I'm glad i was able to keep this short and simple and let the pics speak for themselves.

Till next time, 

Laura

    1. Any teal shimmer steals my heart, I have to be careful and make sure I don't buy them all.

    1. Thanks! I'd like to know who came up wit the design so I could ask her/him what it is! It is very pretty nonetheless and versatile if we don't know the specific shape is.
