In this mani, it's less stark than a white base, but also, the creaminess lends the mani a heavier, more vintage feel.
The stamp is from Cheeky CH50, and I love how it looks in the black. Also, although this looks matte, I didn't matte it - this is how it looked after stamping, and I really loved the finish, so I left it like this.
This mani totally reminds my of my DD colleaugue Lindsey, except usually, she'd do this sort of thing freehand. In her sleep.
