Tie Dye Nails




Base color: OPI Pandamonium Pink
Stamp Colors: Sinful Colors Black, White, and China Glaze Traffic Jam
Red Angel Plate 107
Techniques: Stamping, cleanup with paintbrush and acetone
*To get the tie dye look, instead of brushing color onto the stamping plate, drop different colors onto the design, and allow them to blend when you wipe off the excess polish. 

I got Pandamonium Pink a few weeks ago on a whim. I had been thinking about getting it ever since I saw it swatched on Chloe's Nails (that girl has serious skills, definitely take a look at her blog if you haven't already). In some ways it's a standard pink cream, but it is a very well-done, very pretty, standard pink creme. It is cool-toned but not lavender (which makes it feminine without making it a ballerina pink or a pink-purple). The formula is thin, but is capable of giving you a perfect application. It's just a nice polish.
I got the Red Angel plates at least a month ago, and I haven't done much posting with them yet, so I figured it was time. All my fellow polish-nerds will know about Red Angel plates, but for those who are just getting into polish and stamping and marbling and all that, RA plates are worth considering because they have some cool, retro-looking designs, which sets them apart from many of the Konad, Mash, and Bundle-Monster plates.
