DS Original and Infinity 37

This is a mani I did as part of Digit-al Dozen does Vintage Challenge but discovered via googling that OPI DS Original isn't as old as I thought.  It is older in terms of polishes being released compared to today but not 'vintage' as in the definition of what constitutes vintage being 20 years or older so didn't use it.  (I do have some truly 'vintage' polishes; older Cutex and Sally Hansen polishes; however, when looking for polishes to use for the challenge, the ones I could find, I wasn't keen on wearing and the one Cutex polish in particular I was looking for, I couldn't find it.  Murphy's Law is that I found it last night of course; too late for DD Vintage Challenge!)  So didn't share this one at that time, but am now! Here's what I came up with.

Top coated.

Started with a base of three coats of OPI DS Original, no topcoat.  

After waiting a bit for it to dry, stamped using Infinity 37** using Mundo de Unas #14 stamping polish.

I was intrigued how matte this stamped....and loved the effect!

Picture overload!

A closer look at Infinity 37

I few other pix that intrigued me!

Simple things obviously amuse me!

More pix just because I can't get enough!

I was so fascinated that this stamping polish was so matte with the holo underneath!  So cool! I do have an odd need to topcoat all mani's though so added a coat of SV.  While still cool, I like the look of the matte stamping better!

Have a great weekend; thanks for looking!
