Love & Holo

Hi everyone!  Things have been super busy in my world lately!  I'm so sorry I haven't posted in the past few days!  So, to make up for it, I went a little photo crazy!!!

I started off with two coats of OPI DS Diamond, a soft lilac purple holo with a few flashes of pink.

DS Diamond might have the weakest holo effect of all of the DS holos, but it is present and lovely just the same.

Anyone else miss these like crazy??  I know I do!  I dig the newer DS lines, but nothing compares to the holographic series.

The formula seemed a bit thin during the first coat, but I was wrong!  It was completely smooth, even, and opaque after the second coat.  I followed it with one coat of SV.

Next, I used my Bundle Monster plate BM11 with Zoya Carly for this design.  It wasn't a perfect stamping polish, but it got the job done!!

It kind of reminds me of barbed wire with hearts!  

I decide to have a bit more fun, and used Barry M Silver Foil with Bundle Monster plate BM2 for the kiss on my ring ringer, and the hearts.  I finished with one coat of SV.

I adore the heart stamp, because of it's line down the center.  To me it shows two halves as one.  
I know, I can get cheesy.

I decided to make this one for my husband, before I even started it.  Hence the cheese.  But whatever, he's awesome ... and super hot!  *grins*

I had fun with all of the stamping!  I hope you all enjoy it as well!

Happy Painting!
