Subtle Shifty Stamping with Vintage Polish and ILNP

I love a good simple manicure and I love a good vintage Wet 'n' Wild. Plus I've been trying to improve my stamping prowess...it is slow-going but I think I am getting there. Choosing colors that look good together no matter how badly you mess up doesn't hurt either.

Who knew that a subtle manicure would be so hard to photograph? I tried adding matte to it...but it did no good. In person this was delightfully subtle until a certain angle...and then it was all awesomeness.

Do you love subtle manicures as much as I do? Is there a favorite combo that you always seem to fall back on? Let me know below!

  2. Looks great! I'm not very good at stamping. I tried to stamp gold over a Tiffany blue polish -- ended up using gold stickers lol
