Black And Red - We Stamp On Sundays

This week's challenge was for black and red stamping. For this; I knew what polish I wanted to use, and knew I wanted to use one of my new Bundle Monster plates, now my faulty plates are being replaced and are currently on their way to me.

The Red I used came from my swap with Susana, as did the shimmer. I used Essence Colour3 - Kiss On Top Of The Rock, and Dancing In The Street. So I chose to use two images from BM316 to stamp in black, and while I didn't hate the outcome, I wasn't buzzed about it. The image seemed to transfer a bit thin too - you can kind of see the shimmer through it.
Base Coat: La Femme
Base Colour: Essence Colour3 - Kiss On Top Of The Rock
Shimmer: Essence Colour3 - Dancing In The Street
Stamp Colour: BYS - Black Satin
Image Plate: Bundle Monster BM316
Top Coat: Sally Hansen - Hard As Nails

Here's Kiss On Top Of The Rock; it was so lovely to apply, If I'd been careful one coat would have been fine.

Here is Dancing In The Street; I didn't get any swatch shots though.


I hope everyone's having a good Sunday!

  1. Looks great, but I understand, I would've wanted the black to be more opaque. :)

    1. Yeah, maybe If I got konad black and gave that a shot it'd work with the plate better.
