Trying a different kind of sandwich

I originally came up with the idea of a stamping sandwich, when working on this design.
The black and white graphic print was on my hands already,
when I decided to swatch a polish that came in the mail. The result was amazing!!!

The idea stuck, and here is the latest version:
Natural Light
I used this Avon Matte Violetta as a base,even though I knew it was going to be glossy in the end,
because it's a fantastic one coater polish! 
Next, I added a BM stamp using NYC Lolly Pop (a fantastic $2 foil!)

With Flash
To top it all off - a couple of coats of Fantasy Fire (because it makes everything better)
With Flash 
Lamp Light
Natural Light 
Close Up
Can't wait to try this with some other polishes that I considered too "sheer" before!
My only suggestion if you're going to try this - make sure the stamping underneath is high-contrast.
If it's too subtle - you won't be able to see it!

Thanks for stopping by!
