For the manicure I used a base of El Corazon Rainbow 756 layered over OPI Miss You-niverse. On it's own Rainbow 756 is very sheer which made it perfect for layering over the dark OPI shade. I stamped the pattern from CICI&SISI plate 02, using Wet 'n Wild Black Creme. For the "nailheads" in my tufted pattern, I used gold bullion beads that I purchased at the dollar store...
I'm not completed pleased with how this CICI&SISI plate stamped. As you can see, I wasn't able to pick up the complete image. It doesn't bother me for this look, but I'm hoping the rest of the images in the stamping plate set will perform better for me. Once I play around with them some more, I'll post my full review of the plates...
El Corazon Rainbow 756
A sheer base with a duochrome green/gold and scattered holo shimmer. It is very sheer on it's own at one coat. Shown here are 4 coats (no top coat) and the nail line is still slightly visible. Thanks in part to the strong gold shimmer the nail line is not very obvious. Although it can be worn on it's own, I think it looks beautiful layered over other shades, both light and dark, to add a golden and holo shimmer. The holo is best seen at the more extreme angles, when looking down the nails rather than straight at them...
El Corazon Rainbow 756 (over OPI Miss You-niverse)
Layering over a dark shade really brings out the greenish golden and holographic shimmer...
You can see a bit of the color change here and how the holo shows up more when looking at the nails at a steeper angle...
