Chocolate, with a flair…

So, the polish I’ve used in today’s post has been sitting in my stash for a while, just waiting to be used. It was given to me by Marta, as part of one of her Poland hauls πŸ˜› ( for those of you that don’t “know” her personally, she’s one of my bestestest friends not only because she feeds my polish addiction, but also because she is one of those people you truly cherish having in your life!)
Well, this particular colour I’ve been staring at, and thinking what exactly I could do with it. The shade itself, Essence Absolutely Stylish, is quite peculiar because its a rich chocolate brown creme, but within is suspended a bright green micro glitter visible only at the right angle! Quite striking, really…

Letting my creative juices flow, I decided to add a little “zing” to it. Using China Glaze Robotika, and Bundle Monster plate 216, I applied a half stamp. I figured, that way you get the best of both worlds, the gorgeous polish by itself on the bottom, and a little excitement up top ( like a mullet…kind of…business in the front, party in the back? πŸ˜› )

After seeing the final product I realized that the Robotika stamp was contrasting enough to stand out, yet still subtle enough to not distract from the stamp or polish….

Yup, this chocolate definitely has enough flair for my liking… πŸ™‚

What do you prefer, subtle stamping or contrasting stamping?
