June macro challenge: stamping nail art with Femme Fatale Who Is Fairest Of Them All? and Kleancolor Metallic red "Red flower glass"


I made this nail art a while ago, right after I swatched Who Is Fairest Of Them All? and posted a stamping review of Kleancolor metallic polish. This was my first use of Kleancolor polish for actual nail art and I was really happy with results. However while taking macro pictures I noticed minor smear on some nails, which did not show during my swatch tests. I used same top coat, so it might be due to the background polish or not enough waiting before top coat application. Nevertheless  metallic red stamps really nice, not even tiny bits missing and bright metal finish is lovely.

  1. This is such a lovely color combination! You really have a knack for putting colors together.

    1. Thanks Myishia. This combo was pretty straight forward pink+ red and I knew I wanted to try these metallic kleancolors for real nail art, not just review :)

  2. Love this combination, I never would have thought to combine a red metallic stamping with that Femme Fatale but you rocked it! I must say I'm super impressed with how you centered the image on each nail!!

    1. Thank you Sumeet, I did not think too much about color, because I wanted to use one of the Metallic Kleancolors and red was the best choice. I'm proud of my centering here, it does not always centers so well :)
