This mani didn’t come out quite as I’d hoped.
I picked up the base colour, IsaDora Oasis, when I was randomly rifling through my polish draw and it struck me that it might look brocade-y when paired with my new MoYou London plate Fairytale 13, which is somewhat sewing themed.
Unfortunately, the red (Ulta3 Pinot) did not stamp over it as well as I’d hoped and the green (IsaDora Opposites Attract) looked better before I magnetised it — that’s why there are light and dark bands through it. It was the lighter colour pre-magnet, but putting the pattern in seemed like a good idea at the time. Oh well.
To make the red look less boring I stamped over it with Depend silver stamping polish and safety pins.
Fortunately, the thumb with the gold (Ulta3 Gold Rush Fever) zip looks good.
I finished it all off with a matte top coat: piCture pOlish G’Day Matte (great name) over my default top coat (HK Girl Glisten and Glow) to seal the stamps.
It’s not the worst nail art I’ve ever done, but if I could be bothered starting again, I’d definitely rethink my polish choices. (I still think Oasis makes a good fabricy backing colour though.)
