Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Black: Rainbow Holo Stamping Over Black

Ah, stamping with holo polish. Something I don't do nearly enough, and because I don't do it often I didn't know better when I tried to stamp a rainbow gradient of colours across my nails! Because guess what? The colours don't show up! :/
Yes, I tried to make this a holo-rainbowy-stamping-gorgeousness mani but it didn't quite work out how I expected. At ALL. Bummer! It's still pretty, but not pretty in the way I had planned..
I started off with a base of Sinful Colors Black on Black and then stamped a careful gradient of Color Club Halo Hues from pink to blue to green to orange... As you can see because the linear holo is so strong in these polishes and the colour is so soft, the colours didn't really show up unfortunately. :(
I used plate BP-92, and to add some visual interest since my gradient didn't work out well I also used the same plate and Mundo de Unas White to stamp these decliate lacey designs at the top an added a multichrome gem to each nail.
For some reason this mani makes me think of both judges (with the black and white) and doilys (with the white stamping). Hahaha. I mean, I really like how these nails turned out all things considering! But those are also the things that come to mind when I look at them. :) What do you think?
Thanks for visiting! xx
