Adventures In Stamping - Over Blue Base

Hello :)  It's AIS Sunday and today's theme is Over Blue Base.  This is going to be fun !! 

I started out with Zoya Ibiza (on the pinky) - a blackened indigo blue with subtle shimmer, then an idea just hit me - what about an ombre mani !?!?  So I have on the middle finger Zoya Breezi - a medium cerulean blue creme, pointer is Zoya Kristen - a grey with bluish hue creme, thumb (not shown) is OPI Alpine Snow.  These were the shades used for the reversed gradient on the ring finger plus some White Ice hexagons.  The stamping polishes were both China Glaze, Millenium - a silver metallic & 2030 - a gold metallic.  The image plate was A46 and stamped randomly on the nails.  Let's take a look at these photos ...
What do you think?

Thank you for dropping by.

Beautiful Vicky! I don't think I'll be able to participate in this round. I sliced open my thumb on my left hand on Friday and it's been bleeding and causing problems ever since :( No way can I even think of going near my hand with acetone lol!

Hi Vicky, a mani true to the name of your Blog: Boombastic!!!!! I tried stamping for the first time this weekend but I think that plate from Essence is not vey good - I never got the complete pattern on my stamp :-( but then maybe I did a mistake with how I hold my stamp :-S
