Llarowe always seems to be out of at least a few of the Aquarelle tints, which was good because it kept me from buying ALL of them. I managed to snag pretty much all of the ones I wanted though, so I can't really complain. For this I used Rafael, Sisley, Dali, Malewicz, Botticelli, and Levitan. The white base is OPI Angel With A Leadfoot. The stamping is Sally Hansen Night Fright with Winstonia's The Carnival plate. I had to have it after seeing a mani that Nkem of Another Bottle Of Polish did with one of the images. Good excuse to buy other Winstonia plates I've been eyeing for ages too.
I feel like Night Fright came out a little...well...soft.
It doesn't make a ton of difference once it's tinted, but I figured that since the contrast wasn't as sharp as I'd hoped, I might as well color the whole thing.
I love how it turned out, though there are a couple of flaws here and there. The Aquarelle tints get sticky quickly, so you have to work really fast. The colors are bold and gorgeous though, so it's a fair trade-off. You'll be seeing a lot more of these, I think...but probably with a different black polish. I had really wanted to try the Mundo de Unas black and white, but they're also out of stock on Llarowe. Oh well.
