Hidden Lines

This mani was so easy! Which is not a thing I would usually say. It also looks awesome.


I used one coat of black creme polish (Sinful Colors – Black on Black) covered with two coats of a multichrome glitter (piCture pOlish – Aurora). I added top coat just to speed things up. I still and always will love Aurora, she’s so pretty!


The base colors were dry, I grabbed my newest black (which is to say my “wettest” black…my normal stamping black didn’t work at all. This super squishy clear stamper needs very wet polish to pick up properly!) which is why the stamp is not quite as dark as it could be. Regardless, I used my new B.03 plate from B. Loves Plates, which is full of eye-illusions and I know I will be using a LOT of, and picked a stamp.


I then used my crystal clear stamper (also from B Loves Plates) and went to town. Look at how parallel my lines are to my nail tip! And how ALL OF THE NAIL IS COVERED.


What I have learned: squishy stampers (like this new one) operate differently than hard stampers (my old one). You don’t have to push down to pick up an image, although you do still have to roll the stamper. You need to pick up the image faster, but have a slightly longer time to position and place the stamp before the polish dries and is unusable. Squishy stampers actually cover your entire nail all the way to the edge without issue. Magic!


Hope you enjoyed! And sorry-not-sorry for the photo spam, I do love multichromes!

  1. You used “SC b-on-b under the multi chrome and your “wettest black” for the stamping as your usual stamping-black didn’t work.”
    So what is your “wettest black” that worked well, please?

    • My newest bottle of SC black on black. I have 3 bottles in varying states of dry (depending if I want to stamp with it or paint my nails with it) and super squishy stampers only work with really wet (aka new, which is to say the paint-my-nails bottle) polish!
