Adventures In Stamping - Gold

Hello :)  Sorry, I have been MIA for a few days - been busy with the kids and Max (our male Rottie) is still sick :(  Anyway, it's Sunday again !!  Today's theme is gold as base or stamping color.  I will be showing you a very very simple and plain manicure - just a base color with gold stamp.

I started out with 2 coats of Dior Grege from their Fall 2012 Nude Collection.  I had doubts when the package arrived from Neiman Marcus.  At a glance, it looked too close to my skin tone but then I gave it a try and it looked ok on me.  It is a light brown creme with very subtle gold shimmer, sort of like a coffee ice-cream color,  and was opaque in 2 coats.  This full nail image was from Mash-43 using China Glaze 2030.  Let's take a look at these photos.
Here's Dior Grege with topcoat
What do you think?

Thank you for dropping by :)
