31DC2016 - Violet - Subtle Layered Swirls

*Press Sample*

Hi everyone! We are chugging right along with the 31 Day Challenge and we are completing the ROYGBIV portion of the challenge (we left out indigo), so Violet is what's on the menu today. Let's see what I came up with for the challenge!

For this mani I started off with Chaos & Crocodiles Cheshire Rose (a Hella Holo Customs exclusive that is discontinued). I used two different images from MoYou-London Sailor plate 07 for this design. I started off using Hit the Bottle Purple Reign as my base stamp to add some subtle dimension on top of Cheshire Rose. Next, I stamped with Hit the Bottle Magenta at Your Own Risk to add a pop of contrast to the design. I'm really into the subtle background stamping it seems. Hey, I thought this turned out really pretty and it's definitely violet!

I had the bright idea to matte it a little bit later using KBShimmer's Oh Matte! topcoat (which is great, by the way!), but I don't know if it really added to the design at all. In this case, I think I prefer it glossy.

Be sure to check out what other majestic violet manis were cooked up today by the other participants! Thanks for looking everyone!
