I started with a base mani of SquareHue p.c. hooft straat. I got this in a swap, and I love it! The one thing about it that some people might not like- I had to do four coats to get it to look opaque. But to me that's OK because it's a super pretty color. It's purple with a color shift between warm and cool tones. This is four coats with a layer of top coat.

I actually did this manicure last night and this morning I was looking at it thinking... What if I stamped over this with blue? I wanted to choose a delicate pattern so a lot of the base color showed through, so I grabbed my Infinity plate 02 and use the pattern in the top left corner, which is just a bunch of concentric bubbles with some flower-petal-ish designs in the middle.
I stamped over it in Lauren B. Aire of Bel Aire, which was sent to me by the company for this review. I have yet to do a full mani with this polish; I just keep using it for stamping! Having a 5-free nail polish that works so great for stamping is really a great thing and I would love to get more of these, but they are pricey, so I am keeping an eye out for them on swap sites.
So here are the results! What do you think? In real life, you can barely see the stamping. I had to really angle my hand right to get it in the photo. I kind of like that effect.
