Fauxnad - Starry Night

 (Indoors, Flash)
Base: 2 coats of OPI Roadhouse Blues
Stamp: Color Club Worth The Risque
Plates: BM14, BM20, BM21

I really enjoyed this mani.  I couldn't stop staring at my nails when I had it on, especially on my way to work when the sun was hitting them!  I thought the combo of the creme base and the holo stamp was so striking.  The Color Club holos are great for stamping.  I did attempt to use OPI DS Sapphire as my stamping polish when I first started this design, but it didn't show up the way I wanted it to.  I left it on my thumb nail, so you will see in the other pictures how the design was much less crisp.




Please excuse the lower quality of the last 3 pics, they were taken with my iPhone.  I just HAD to show you guys how amazing the holo looked in direct sunlight in my car! (Don't worry, I took these when my car was stopped!:D)

In this one you can see the thumb stamp fail that I was talking about.

  1. I wish my nails could be that nice. They split and crack so easily. How much time went into doing this manicure?

  2. @Wayne Thank you!

    @Anonymous Try lots of moisturizing and a strengthening treatment polish like OPI Nail Envy! I probably spent about an hour on this. I am still working on improving my stamping skills, including speed. Thanks for commenting. :)
