Sparkly Subtle S..pink Stripes
One thing I love about Fall is all the rich jewel-toned goodies that come out this time of year. I love all the wine and berry lippies, the emerald, rose-gold, and mulberry eye shadows, and the wine and burgundy nail polishes.
Take a gander at this lovely wine crelly polish, Ulta Pauper Etiquette. It's a divine wine!
I thought it would be cool to put Cuttin' Edge Miss Peregrine over it, hoping for more of that duochrome orange-pink to show, but it really just played up the shimmer. Reminds me of the new OPI, Thank Glogg It's Friday.
This spiky stripey stamp is from the Cici & Sisi 10 plate.
I thought it might be fun to go over the pinks with a sparkly version in the same color family. This is a Color Club that came in one of those bundles from Ross, so of course it has no name. It's a pretty raspberry metallic color.
I liked the effect, but it's pretty subtle. If you're not in close to see it, the stamp just changes how the polish catches the light.
I like how the Color Club enhances the shimmer from Miss Peregrine. I like how the stripes aren't super clear, but you can tell there's *something* going on there!
I love a more defined stripe, too, but there's something nice about a subtle nail art that just manipulates the way you see the polish, too.
Do you have a fave striped mani? I'd love for you to share it on my FB page!
