It's the evil eye stamp

I had a really hard time trying to figure out what to call this mani.  I ran through all sorts of ideas, but stuck with the one I kept coming back to.  As you know, Zoya always has sales.  I recently had acquired this beautiful rust orange shimmer and just had to try it out.

I also wanted to do a very colorful mani.  Usually I match the stamp and the funky but this time I used three different colors.  I am not sure how I feel about these colors together.  I had a different idea in my head.  I will let you guys decide.

Here is your silly bottle shot.



This is Zoya Kaufda and Illamasqua Scarab.  As I said earlier, this Kaufda is a pretty rust orange shimmer.  I think it's lovely.  I had a little problem with the application, the formula was a little thin.  Also, some of you will tell me that this is too frosty for you.  I did have brush marks but I knew my stamping would cover that up.  The sun was hiding when I started this so I have no sun shots to show off the pretty shimmer. Here are your shots.

Isn't this pretty?  I love colors like this.  Reminds me of fall leaves.  Don't worry, you will see the shimmer in the final shots.  I then stamped with Konad special polish in yellow and Red Angel plate 120.  This I topped with my funky french in Scarab which I showed you before.  Scarab is a stunning deep red shimmer.  Here are the results.

First let's talk about that shimmer.  Isn't it awesome? I am so loving this orange.  I am a bit bummed that the Scarab looks black in these pictures.  But look closely at the design.  No matter which way I look at it, all I see are eyes staring at me.  Whether upside down or right side up, the eyes keep staring and staring.  It's actually kind of creeping me out.  I have been looking at these eyes for days now.  I'll be so happy to take this off!

I did get a lot of compliments on this at work.  It sure is colorful.  I still haven't decided if I like this or not. Maybe it's just my anal nature and I like my stamp color to match my funky.  I was stepping outside my comfort zone here.

But those eyes keep staring.......
