While choosing the nail polishes I wanted to use in order to create D nail art, I came up with two trios: one with classic colours, and one with a more unusual combination. I decided to go with the unique trio.

Not only did I choose 3 shades that I wouldn’t immediately put together, I decided to try a double stamped look.

I started with 2 coats of Gosh in Drizzle. This is a pretty subdued turquoise shade. I then used BornPrettyStore BP-L006 stamping plate and double stamped the same image using Essence in Do You Speak Love and Date in the Moonlight.

I started my stamping with Do You Speak Love, which is a dark red in the bottle, but looks more dark pink when stamped. I stamped over this with Date in the Moonlight, which is dark blue with bright blue micro glitter in the bottle, but only stamps as the dark blue.

I really love the end look. Both Essence polishes stamped well, even if they look different when stamped. The overall look reminds me of prep school plaid, and feels classic yet modern.

I love when unexpected combinations of colour work out great, and this look is a prime example of that.
