Vaguely Chinese

I have mixed feelings about this manicure. It doesn’t look half bad, but it does not look NEARLY as cool as I imagined it would be! I wanted to try tone-on-tone stamping with my new Darling Diva polishes. One of them is brown and I thought it would pair beautifully with a pinkish-gold…but they dry to different shades.

The new polish here is a brown-grey holographic polish called Chocolate Diamond by Darling Diva. Although the holographic flare isn’t incredibly strong, it is definitely noticeable! This is a more elegant holo than what I usually go for (…very rainbow). The kicker with this polish, is that it is a one coater and dries incredibly fast! It dried to a semi-matte finish. I am in love with the finish and dry time 🙂

I complimented Chocolate Diamond with Penny Talk by Essie. Although I love the mirror sheen of Penny Talk, it really doesn’t add as much as I had hoped for here! There are also two stamps by bundle monster: 208 and 221.

Overall, not my best work, but I thought it was worth posting and wasn’t quite a fail!
