#THELACQUERRING: Lace

Welcome back for the second The Lacquer Ring prompt  for September - lace! I thought it would be pretty easy, given how many stamping plates I have with lace imagery, but part of the problem was narrowing down what I wanted to use!

Here's what I ended up picking - do you see a hidden image there? ;)
*Polish provided as a Press Sample for review*The base of this mani is Tonic Polish Silent Storm (*provided for review) - it's part of an upcoming Fall/Halloween collection and I'm excited to show it off!

Silent Storm - A stormy grey-blue with glowing blue multichrome shimmer that shifts to purple and red-pink. Opaque in 2 thick or 3 thin coats. Top coat is strongly recommended for maximum shine and color impact.
I love the bottle shots - the shimmers really stand out, but on the nail the golden color wasn't as visible. Mainly the transition was between blue and the purple/pink.

I went with 3 coats and they applied well. Shorter nails and thicker coats can get away with just two.





The blue shimmer really does glow under the right lighting conditions, it was hard to pick what I liked more - the blue or the purpley-pink shift. The beauty of the multidimensional polishes is you get it all in one bottle!

It definitely looks like a stormy sky!





For the stamping I picked a black polish from BornPretty Store, and a silver holo from Color Club, Harp On It. Stamping plates are MoYou Gothic 05 and Loja BBF 34.

Did you notice the hidden image yet?

My pick from the MoYou plate is a skull! I think it's pretty well hidden!

I'll have more Tonics to show off in the next few days, so check back to see them! They're truly beautiful!
Tonic's Fall/Halloween collection is coming 10/2/16!
