#StampingSaturday: Vice Gradient

Hold onto your eyeballs! #StampingSaturday is about to get neon-ed today and it's eye searingly bright. I recently got my hands on the Cirque Colors Vice Collection and I've been impatiently waiting to use them. 

I laid down a white base before doing a gradient of Cirque Colors Nympho and Vitamin D. Nympho is a neon fuschia creme and Vitamin D is a neon peach creme. I sponged on 3 coats for the desired opacity here. I'm loving these two colors together! 




Of course I then had to top the gradient with Cirque Colors We Trippy the holographic topcoat for some added rainbows. I know want to run around and throw We Trippy on all the polishes!




This is the part where it went wrong guys! I just don't like the stamping that much and my black stamping polished smeared, making it worse. But I stamped on a design from MoYou London Hipster 08. 




It got a little wonky, but it is what it is. Have you been playing with all things neon lately? I just can't get enough!

Be sure to check out all the other stamped looks below.

    1. It was my first time trying it. I really like the results and how the color seems to blend from one nail to the next. Super fun.

  5. That gradient is perfection. I also love the stamping, it shows off the gradient really well. Plus, I'm sure we all feel your pain on the smearing!!

  12. Oh man this gradient is amazing. And I don't think the stamping is bad. It was a great choice to let the gradient still show through and the black defines it!
