It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is black. This seemed like the perfect theme for me to combine matte and glossy finishes – with a splash of colour, of course! I think this will be a fun theme, although I’m pretty sure I’ll be including at least a little colour each day. I started off with a base of Sinful Colors Black on Black on all but my ring finger. I decided to go with some lacy matte stamping, using plate BP-L020 from Born Pretty Store. For my ring finger, I started with a base of Darling Diva As Much Fun as a Sandpaper Dildo. I added the stamping using the same plate and a black stamping polish. It’s not necessarily what I was initially going for, but this kind of ended up looking like some fancy lingerie.
I really love the rose image I used on my ring finger! I wasn’t so sure about it at first but once I got it on my nail, I loved it. That pale pink was also the perfect shade to combine with the black here! The matte stamping is a little imperfect, but I liked it nonetheless. The matte top coat I’ve been using for stamping dries quite fast so it’s very difficult to get it looking perfect. I actually just got a different matte top coat to try, so I’ll have to see if that one’s any better for stamping. What’s great about matte stamping is that you can basically have tone-on-tone stamping with any base colour. Well, I’d say I’m off to a strong start! I like the pink and black together a lot and of course, what’s not to love about lace and roses?
I’m looking forward to seeing what all the other Digital Dozen members come up with for this theme!
