I have done this manicure in magenta, but I love this stamp so much, I wanted to do it again in another color. I used Sinful Colors Mint Apple as the background and Sinful Colors Black on Black with Bundle Monster plate 203. Mint Apple distinguishes itself from the legions of other mint-greens that have come out in the past year or so with a subtle gold shimmer. The formula is thin but easy to work with. I used two coats for this manicure, although I think it would look better with three, especially if I were wearing it on its own with no stamp.
