The Digit-al Dozen does Indie: Indie Dress Inspired

We are well into the Digital Dozen April week and I have loved this prompt! To give myself a bit of an extra challenge I chose various indie products as my inspiration. I then chose the best indie polishes to create a mani around the indie product. Today I have created a mani themed after this indie dress. I love how it turned out, so let’s take a look…

Since this is a monochromatic dress design I had to get a bit creative with polish to get the look I was going for. Painted Polish Stamped in Guava was the perfect shade to match the dress. From there I did a bit of mixing and matching.

For the peachy sheer on my index and little finger I took a dab of Painted Polish Stamped in Guava and mixed it with a bit of clear top coat. I used one coat to give the sheer hint of color then stamped over it with Stamped in Guava. For my middle and ring finger I needed a slightly softer shade so the stamping would show up over it. I took a bit of Stamped in Guava and mixed in a few drops of KBShimmer Eyes White Open. It worked perfectly for getting the slightly softer color. I gotta tell ya I felt like the shiz for being so clever with colors. 😎
