Now, I do know it is rude to toot one's own horn, but OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS MANI !! I could not be more in love with it if I tried. It's big and it's bold and it's awesome - a bit like the Crumpet herself lol.
So, the technicals -
* base colour is 2 coats of OPI Vampsterdam - sublime colour, just sublime
* stamping plate is BM-204
* stamping polish is Barry M silver foil - there is NO better stamping polish in my opinion than Barry and his M's foils. At the moment, he only does silver, gold and lilac - here's hoping he brings out a whole rainbow for my birthday :)
I just LOVE how this mani works. It's one of those where the end effect is far more than the sum of the parts. I love Vampsterdam as the base as it's so dramatic, and you just can't guarantee EVER that the base and stamping colours will collide so beautifully. I also love the boldness of the flower print - it's exactly the sort of pattern I like.
Again, this reminds me a little bit of wallpaper, especially the velvety goodness of Vampsterdam.
Anyway, anyhow, I LOVE THIS LOTS.
Have a great Mothers Day if you're in the UK - I'm off to spend the rest of my day snuggling with Beth.
Enjoy xx :)
