Stamping Challenge: Mani Using Three Purples

Purchased by Me

Hello Loves.  I decided to give the Adventures in Stamping Sunday Challenge a try this week.  I'm not in love with the result, but I guess I can't love them all.  :)

Working backward, I stamped this one with Mundo de Unas Lilac stamping polish and the reverse flower image from MoYou London Pro Collection XL 13.

For the base, I started with Ink Scarlet Empress.  Scarlet Empress is a slightly sheer, pastel purple frost.  When I wear it alone, I usually wear it over a white base to make it opaque.  This is 3 coats without the white base.  The second picture shows how the light bounces off of the frosty finish.

I then dry marbled Scarlet Empress with Ink Secret Desire.  Secret Desire is a darker, shimmery purple.  Random note, but this is the first Ink I ever owned.  :)  As you can see in the second picture, when the light hits the shimmer it shifts to a slightly lighter shade of purple.

Finally, here's a shot of the base before the stamp.  I absolutely love how this marble turned out! I almost couldn't bring myself to finish the challenge and stamp over it.

Check back later this week for a video tutorial on how I did the dry marbled base for this mani.  :)
