Before & After: Zoya Courtney + UberChic Beauty 11-01

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!


How's things today? I got the final edits from my editor on my work-in-progress manuscript, and am taking care of the last finishing touches--hopefully I'll be sending it out to agents soon!


For today's manicure, I started with a base of the amazing Zoya Courtney, one of the one-coat cremes in Zoya's Urban Grunge fall/winter 2016 collection:

Then I stamped an image from UberChic Beauty plate 11-01:

I stamped using MoYou London's Ginger Rust, a duochrome stamping polish that goes through gold and copper to a greenish-blue gold at the edges. Here's how it came out:

What do you think?! I love the elegance of this so much! Yes, I love vampy reds so that's no surprise, but the duochrome gold/copper complements it soooo well. I'd wear this every day of the year.


Happy stamping,
M.
