Zoya+Nail Stamping

I finally took my Hunger Games polish off, which was practically a workout because of all that glitter! Though the tinfoil method helped, I still ended up having to scrub off some of the glitter. Once I was done, I definitely wanted to try out one of my new Zoya's! I chose Lana, a reddish orange duo-chrome. The duo-chrome is pretty subtle with Lana. She mostly exudes the reddish orange feel, but in some lights, she definitely has a gold-tone to her. Even though she wasn't as duo-chrome as I had hoped, I still love the color and look! I tried to capture the different colors of Lana, but it was difficult!

I couldn't just be done once Lana was on. That would be too plain and boring for me! So I went through my pins on Pinterest and found a really cool manicure with a lacy stamp. Then, I went through my Shany stamps and sure enough, SH21 has a perfect lacy design on it. If you've never tried stamping, I'd highly recommend it! The possibilities are endless and it's so easy to do! All you do is put polish on the stamp, scrape off the excess, dab it with the stamp, and roll it onto your nail! Perhaps I'll post a tutorial on stamping another day...anyways, that being said, I am a perfectionist and a tiny piece of polish from my stamp ended up away from the stamped design on my middle finger. UGH. Oh well, I know it's probably not terrible and I just need to get over it! :) I used OPI Black Onyx for the stamp, finished with Essie 3-way Glaze, and here's what I ended up with:
