MoYou London Stamping Contest - Day 6: Purple

This was my absolute favorite mani to do.  It was also my favorite result.  I was so sad to take it off after only one day!  I was inspired to do something "Regal" with my nails for purple day.

I had actually had this mani planned as soon as I found out about the MoYou London contest.  It took less than 15 seconds to pull out the polishes to do it.  That's seriously a record for me!

I really need more practice with gradients.  I didn't work too much with this one because I knew it would be masked by the stamping on top.  I started with a coat of Color Club Over the Moon and then used a damp makeup sponge to do the gradient.  There are two coats of polish on each of my other nails.

I used my MoYou London Pro XL 10 plate and Essie Licorice for the stamps on my nails.  Basic, easy stamping here.  This mani was also inspired by Carmen (IG@ineedamani and you can find her blog here).  She had done a similar mani that I thought was amazingly beautiful.  I don't believe it's on her blog but you can find it on her IG.

And here's the finished result!  I added a clear rectangular gem to my index and pinky fingers to add to my "Regal" effect.

I couldn't resist taking a few flash shots to show the gorgeous linear holo in the Color Club polishes.

What's your favorite holographic nail polish?  Are you an indie girl or a mainstream polish lover?
