Anyway, as I do not do red, I thought I'd start there (!!!), with Lazy Afternoon. This is quite possibly the warmest red I have ever had on my nails and I really like it. It does look quite orange in the bottle and I was a bit confused as I know Anna's swatches are always reliable. It is an orangey red with a delicate holographic shimmer and is certainly more red on the nail than in the bottle. The holo is very pretty.
The consistency was nice - I used 2 coats for these pictures but to be honest if I was just going to stamp over this, one would probably have been sufficient, and yes, I tested this to see if it would stamp and it stamped nicely onto white paper. Next time I have a pale polish on I will test it properly.
I used this as a base for a challenge mani later in the week, but then I also tested a new plate on top of that. I had just re-homed Moyou London Steampunk 03 so I had to try it out. I used Colour Alike A Kind of Black with the heart shaped image. Possibly not the best combination of colours and images, and the alignment is not the best but I think it looks quite pretty.
