Stamped Manicure to Add Dimension

 You can use nail art stamping to add beautiful art to your nails. Sometimes I like to use it to a more subtle effect, to add dimension to a manicure. This is how I used it today.

Subtle Stamping for effect
Basically, I looked for a few different colors in my stash that were in the same color family, and I wanted some glitter as well. 
I came up with:
  • ORLY Fowl Play - a purple polish with purple and red glitter. I did one sheer base coat of this.
  • Essie Wrapped in Rubies- a deep red metallic, which is what I used for the stamping
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Perky Pink (401), a pale pink jelly glitter. This particular glitter does not have a ton of glitter, which is why I chose it. I didn't want to completely obliterate the bottom two layers with glitter.
I stamped with Infinity Nails plate 02 (from Dashica) using a pattern that is more or less a bunch of concentric bubbles. Unless you look really close up, you can barely see the stamping, but that's exactly what I wanted.

Stamping is barely visible
I got the effect I was going for, which is a purply-red-pink-glittery multidimensional manicure!
