Digit-al Dozen Does Vampy; Day 2

In typical Digit-al Dozen fashion, this vampy theme is a challenge for me!  I'm not a fan of super dark colours so trying to come up with something vampy was a challenge...but I'm always up for it as the challenges help me to expand my colour range, styles, methods, etc that I probably wouldn't have otherwise!  I really liked how this one turned out; here's Day 2!

Started with a base of two coats of Tonic Nail Polish Tides of Perseid. Tonic Nail Polish was a brand that I wasn't that familiar with as I owned none until I went to PolishCon in September. In fact, if I'm being honest, I hadn't even heard of the brand and they weren't on my radar at all.   However, I do have to say that of all the brands at PolishCon, I bought the most Tonics!  I just really liked the colours and the added scattered holo in most of them just seemed to give them a little something extra that appealed to me!

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Stamped using an image from UberChic UC 10-01 using MdU 41.

Topped it again with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Here's Ms. Cindy, aka my test hand, with me deciding if I like it better with matte top coat or not.  This pix also shows the duochrome shift in the polish so much better than any other of the pix I took. 

I decided I liked the matte version just a little bit more than with top coat, so added a coat of OPI Matte to finish.

Here's the other ladies Day 2 vampy nails!

  5. Oh my, that is stunning! I had never heard of Tonic until Polish Con either, but I'm so happy she was there because everything she makes is beautiful!
