Nothing to Disclose
Hello again, Readers! I promised two posts this week and I like to live up to my promises!
Today I’m going to show you something that combines two of my favorite things, stamping and Digital Nails nail polish. I don’t think it’s any secret whatsoever about my love and devotion to all things Digital Nails!
Let’s talk about Lying and shadow stamping for a minute. As you can see, Lying is a thermal polish and what that means, in case you were unaware or are new to indie polish, is that it changes color with the temperature. Shadow stamping is a technique that involves stamping over a thermal polish in a color that is as close to the darker of the two colors as possible so that it “disappears” when it is in that color state and “appears” when the lighter color is present.
On Lying the darker color is the “cold” color and is a greyish-purple. I love this color on me. In order to achieve my shadow stamping I had to franken a polish to be as close as I could to the “cold” color of Lying. I used polishes that I knew stamped well alone to mix up a new color that I used to stamp for this mani.
As you can see, I got -pretty- close. It’s not perfect but when you’re not looking at it close up you can’t see the stamping when it is in the cold state!
Lying is a beautiful turquoise color when it is in the warm state:
In both states there is a lovely blue iridescent microglitter that is in the creamy base that just adds depth and interest. It was pretty shy for these pics but it is a lovely addition to the thermal polish! Lying is available in the Digital Nails shop and I will add links below. I used Vivid Lacquer – VL041 for the image that I stamped onto my nails.
I’m beyond in love with this polish and this whole mani. I need more thermals in my life! Sound off in the comments and tell me some of your favorite thermals I would love to know!
