The polishes still were still sitting out on my table so I decided to try to reverse them. Lincoln Square Lavender was used for the base. It is a pretty soft mauve color. Application was less than ideal. The polish was pretty thick and even though it did not pull it was difficult to get a thin even coat. I applied three coats to get a nice and even opaque color.
Outside still overcast even though it is supposedly summer...
I stamped it using Borghese Bella Berry which was also still in my table from the last post. See how lazy I am? :D The contrast of this combination turned out great. I had a few people ask me if this was the crackling polish effect and I had to explain it was a stamp. Wouldn't it be great if the crackle would split into a floral pattern? Although I will admit from a distance it is hard to tell the pattern :)
Here is the pattern on the dress which was the inspiration for this manicure. It would have been nice if the dark base/light stamping worked, but I like the reverse combination as well.
Stamping was done using Bundle Monster plate BM-225...
