Sunday Stamping - Opposites on the Color Wheel

Today's stamping challenge was to do opposites on the color wheel.  I first picked a lovely red-violet polish, and found that the opposite was yellow-green.  Oh, boy.

Lacquerhead Polish Plum Crazy.  This is a jelly polish with subtle holo sparkle.  It probably took about 3-3.5 coats of polish to reach opacity, and under the bright light showed a little VNL, but you couldn't tell in Real Life.  I really like this red plum color!  It does dry semi-matte, so you'll need topcoat for that shine.

I figured I'd have some trouble making the green show up over the plum, so I first stamped with Milani Pearl White.

Then, I stamped over it again with Nabi Green.  I ended up dabbing some more green on to make it show up.  Kind of a fail, really.  I love the color combo MUCH more than I thought I would, but my execution was lacking!

The plate - Mash 50.  You have to use your imagination, but the vines on my nails look like the ones on the plate. Can you see it now?

Bottle shot:  Nabi Green Hologram, and Lacquerhead Polish Plum Crazy.  Two colors I never would have put together, but I liked!

What's an unlikely pairing you made that you ended up liking?


  1. I know you're just being nice! lol, this was a learning mani! lol

  2. I think it looks great! Far better than I have ever been able to stamp! :P


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
