A2Z Series - A is for Angles

Well, the big day is here! This is the first day of a new challenge, and I was very excited to be asked to join in with this latest A2Z series, although I have to say, the closer the day got the more nervous I was!
Anyway, the prompt is Angles, and I decided as I am newly into stamping I'd look for a good image that included angles. I found this wonderfully geometric one with overlapping chevrons on CICI&SISI 08 so that's what I have used today. I really like this image, it's quite Art Deco I think! My base is 2 coats of Nails Inc Kate Spade New York Noir, and I have stamped with Too Fancy Lacquer Prima Donna. This polish stamped really well, I haven't worn it before but it looks like it would give excellent coverage and has a really strong holo.
The pale silvery lilac holo looks great against the black in bright light, although it does fade to a greyish shimmer in lower levels of light. I got caught out by the sun setting too quickly and had to take my pictures indoors which is a real shame but otherwise I am quite pleased with how this turned out.
