Before & After: Frosty Swirls

(Polish originally sent for review)

Hello!

I have a super-quick before & after to show you today!


I started with Barielle First Class Ticket:

Then I added a coat of Barielle Shooting Star:

Finally, I stamped some pretty swirls with Finger Paints Magenta Mural and MoYou London Mother Nature/Landscape 14:

What I love best about this is that when the purple part of the duochrome here catches the light, it matches the stamping beautifully--you can see it a bit in the bottm picture, which I left a little blurry to show it.


Happy stamping!

    1. Thank you!! I figure that way even if someone doesn't like my mani, they can see the base polish alone, lol. :)

  3. Does anyone else see a sort of abstract face in your middle finger stamp? :) Just an added value, then, to a really pretty mani.

  12. Wow..that top coat is magical. I loved the creme finish of Barielle First Class Ticket on its own as well. But after adding shooting star it transformed into new polish, which is something interesting about this Duo!

    1. You should see Shooting Star over darker colors--the blue-purple duochrome is so rich and jeweled...sigh...:)

    3. Maybe you should do a post about how to see if a glitter will do good for stamping over?

    4. Basically it's just trial and error, and I error more than I get it right, lol! But I'll see if I can detect some generalities. :)
