Shimmer Cristina Stamped with Nicole by OPI Personally Speaking...

I have really mixed feeling about this manicure, but decided to show it to you anyway. It is not horrible, but certainly not what I had hoped for. The stamping turned out to be much too subtle and lacks that pop that I wanted. On the other hand sometimes subtle is nice, so maybe you can help me decide... :)


I started out with a base of Shimmer Cristina which I showed you yesterday. It is a beautiful mix of green and red glitter in a tinted jelly base. For the stamping, I wanted to try out Nicole by OPI Personally Speaking... from the CVS exclusives this fall. It worked really well for stamping and I will certainly be trying it over other bases for more contrast...


The stamping image comes from the Cheeky jumbo plate C. This plate has so many gorgeous images that I want to try, that I have a hard time deciding which one to use...


I accented it with a little flower rhinestone in yellow for a bit of contrast and fun...


Let me know what you think of this! Good? Bad? Don't care either way?...

Thanks for looking!
Anutka :)

  8. I happen to really like this...all that shimmery glitter peeking out behind the stamp. If the stamping was done in black, it would look like stained glass...but I think I like it better this way...like you said "subtle"

  12. I was not even remotely interested in any of the NOPIs for CVS until I saw this - the one you stamped over the color you stamped it on is stunning!

  14. @beachgal, it is nice and thick for stamping! There is another one in this collection that I suspect will work well also. I'll have to try it out and share :)
