The base on this is 2 coats of Ulta Femme Fatale, a growling cream shimmer in a port color — took awhile to dry but I was in the mood for something dark and stormy after staring at bright colors for hours.  I have a bottle of Matesse White that had been laying around and wanted to see how it did with stamping, so gave it a go with BM-224 and the fun little jack-o-lantern stamp on there.  The Matesse was thinner than I expected and so didn’t stamp with the full-on white I’ve come to expect from using Kleancolor, but the lines all held up pretty well (the smudging you see is from an overly aggressive topcoat) so that it’s not 100% opaque isn’t a huge issue.  Finished it off with a coat of Sally Hansen Rock Candy with all of its fun iridescent multi glitters and then ran outside to see what it did in the sun! (love it while you’ve got it, right?!)
