On most nails, I started with Revlon Stiletto, a really nice opaque black creme. Using my already much loved Messy Mansion plate, MM24, I stamped the text with Sinful Colors' white creme, Snow Me White.
And lookit that! My pinky's all wonky! lol! I redid it a couple times, then had to cut my losses and go with this. : P
For accent nails, I started with a layer of SpaRitual's gorgeous deep red glitter Spellbound then using a makeup sponge, pounced Stilello and Spellbound over the base layer till the colors blended.
I topped everything with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri. It not only will protect the delicate stamping details, but blended the red/black gradient a bit more. The fact that it helps me go to bed a bit earlier because of its quick drying talents is a huge perk, too!
