piCture pOlish White Wedding Stamped with Dorothy

After I was done swatching the beautiful piCture pOlish White Wedding and Dorothy for yesterday's Blog Fest post, I couldn't help but play around with the two. They were perfect a perfect combination for a sweet romantic manicure. I could definitely wear something like this for Valentine's day or maybe a wedding? See what you think...


The base of this manicure is piCture pOlish White Wedding stamped with piCture pOlish Dorothy. Dorothy is actually a "mesh" polish with lots of silver glitter. None of the glitter transferred for stamping, but it didn't stop the strong red base from coming across. This is probably the only time I will stamp with it since it is such a waste of the pretty glitter, but I had to try at least once.


For the stamp, I used Bundle Monster plate BM-317 from their newest collection. I absolutely adore this pattern. It is so delicate and romantic and every little detail transfers so well to the nail. This is actually the second time I'm using this stamp, but have not had a chance to post the first manicure yet, so that's coming up soon.


Per my usual efforts to avoid matchy nails, I rotate the stamp to get a slightly different pattern each time. I also filled a few empty spots with additional portions of the stamp. Nothing bugs me more than unintentional blank space...


One more shot with the rose as I had so much fun setting the scene for this romantic manicure. One thing I will say is that I didn't realize how difficult it is to take good shots with props vs a polish bottle (something my hand is used to). I admire those of you who take these kind of photos on a regular basis...


As a little bonus, I caught a nice shot of the shimmer in the bottle. Click to zoom in to see some of the gorgeous color flecks...


Thanks for looking!

  2. That's really pretty! From a far it looks to me like the stamping is done with lihgter and darker polish. The filled hearts look darker. Really cool effect!

  8. This is sooo beautiful!Honestly, you set the romantic scene so well.. I'm surprised the red stamped so well... I need to get a little bit more adventurous with the shades I choose to stamp with (not just white and black).
    I enjoyed this post sooo much!
