Ulta3 - Metallic Crush Collection Stamping Test

Usually metallics are known to be good for stamping. A few people have been wondering if the latest metallics from Ulta3 would be good for stamping so I've done a quick test. I wasn't expecting them to work because they aren't very opaque. I got some good results:


There are two feather stamps on each nail. From left to right the colours are:
Antique Gold, Jade, 
Pinot, Burnt Orange
Shiraz, Cocoa
Copper, Enchanted

Edit: I used Bundle Monster plate number BM15 from the first set for the feather stamp.

Over white they all work well, except for Shiraz which is a bit sheer. Over black Antique Gold, Pinot and Copper are the only ones that are easily visible. I wasn't expecting any of them to work over black so I was surprised with these results. 

I decided on going squoval for a while until my nails grow out. Not sure if I'll post again until Monday, I think I've gone over my download limit...
