Geometric Glitz: Stamped Nail Art feat. Black Cat Lacquer

Hello Nail Artists! I recently decided to treat myself to a monthly subscription to Llarowe's "A Box, Indied". I love indie polishes and thought this would be a great way to broaden my horizons and try brands and/or polishes I may not have chosen myself. The one I'd like to share with you today is Black Cat Lacquer's Cosmic Cranberry.

 Black Cat Lacquer is a new brand for me and I knew I was going to love this polish from the moment I set eyes on the bottle! It's a raspberry/burgundy jelly loaded with small multicolor glitter. Application was a bit challenging, perhaps due to my base coat choice or me over-working the polish, I'm not sure. But it was fully opaque in 2 coats and oh so pretty. This color is exclusive to the indie box, but I encourage you to try their other glitter polishes, as I will be doing too!

I was really excited when I tried pairing it up with Dance Legend's Rich Black 924 and they worked great together! You know I just can't have matchy-matchy nails! The idea for the design came from the weekly challenge theme in one of my nail art groups: Geometric. Of course I completely missed posting them on challenge day, but better late than never, right?

I started with a base of Picture Polish Revolution then applied 2 coats of Cosmic Cranberry to my index, middle and pinky fingers. My thumb and ring finger received 2 coats of the Rich Black 924. Both polishes dried to a somewhat matte, bumpy finish due to all of the glitter, but that was easily ratified with 2 coats of HK Girl Fast Dry Topcoat.

I stamped using Mundo de Unas Light Gold #40.

These gorgeous polishes needed no further embellishments. I simply finished off this easy nail art design with more topcoat to seal the stamping and bring out the shine in the glitters.
