30 Days of Colour: DRK Nails Metallic brown stamping polish swatch "Is it wood?"


It's day 9 and color is brown, I swatched stamping polish metallic brown by DRK. Honestly i picked this polish randomly together with my Creative shop stamper and did not expect mush. However, i was pleasantly surprised that it stamps super crisp and color is so shiny vibrant. The base for this nail art called "Is it wood?" was my bright orange-pink reverse gradient (you can find it here). And I'm delighted how this color combination works together and fits this wood stamping pattern.

  1. Lovely. Now I have to add that color to my drk cart!

    1. Thanks, I wish they had mango when I was placing my order.

  2. Gorgeous! The gradient and stamping are so complimentary!

    1. Thank you Summet, stamping does cover gradient a lot, so I was wondering if it would look similar with single color background.

  3. This is so pretty and (please don't take this as an insult) it reminds me a bit of bacon! :-D Then again the colors on my monitor might be a bit off lol
