Sunday Stamping - Nude in Fishnets
Today's Adventures In Stamping challenge was to stamp over a nude base. I'm a little self-conscious about being naked, but I love a nude nail. I find it very flattering - especially when the nude is a holo. So, I slipped into Lilypad Lacquer Naked Skies.
Like all the Lilypad Lacquers I've tried so far, the formula is impeccable. This nude has an interesting twist, though - it has a strong silver duochrome. I don't know if it has a chrome base, or what, but in some orientations, it's very silver, and in others, nude. Pretty weird...but also kinda cool.
I used this fishnet stamp from my jumbo Cheeky plate, and Finger Paints Black Expressionism to stamp.
I had bought these gold 3-d decorations from an Ebay seller, hoping for these cute gold butterflies. No such luck, but I did get a ton of these little Dior pieces. They are not decals; they don't lie flat. I just laid them on top with a little topcoat.
It gave me a little chuckle, like a hooker in fishnets who is trying too hard by wearing faux Dior. It's cla$$y, gurrl! mmmm-hmmm.
What's your favorite pairing over a nude base?
