Can you be subtle with a color this vampy?

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have a groovy week and are ready for the weekend!

I'm a huge fan of Sammy and her wicked stamping skills, and some of my favorites of hers are done with darker colors, so I decided to give it a shot. I love what I do, I love doing fun bold designs on myself, but I am a professional and it's usually not my tastes that I need to be catering to! I'm not a fan of dark nail polish colors but I just loved this one in the bottle since the moment I laid eyes on it. I was disappointed in how little glitter actually comes out on the nail - but those non-glittery clients I have (yes, they do exist!) actually like it that it isn't so glittery and sparkly. It's these gals that I had in mind for today.

I picked that stamp design because it's much more subtle without being almost invisible.The nail color is OPI's OPI Ink.

Here's another angle with the light coming from a different direction and you can see how the color goes from a bright blurple to almost black. It's not a duochrome but you definitely get different looks depending on the lighting.  I find it much more suitable for a club than anything else but everyone has their own aesthetic.

I hope you enjoyed today's post and thanks for reading! See you tomorrow!
