I started with Zoya Veruschka, a forest green polish with a nice shimmer. Verushka dries matte, but is sheerer than I expected. unlike other matte polishes, this one needed three coats for opacity.
On top of Veruschka, I used China Glaze Cherish (Romantique Collection) and Bundle Monster plate BM-314 for the stamping. Cherish is a pale green metallic, that looks pale gold over the darker green base. The matte base polish gives the stamping a matte look, too, I'd say it almost looks like gift wrapping paper.
I added some topcoat (Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer) to seal the stamping, as I knew I was going to wear this mani for three days. But I preferred the matte look, so I re-matted it with Essence Soft Touch topcoat after I tookt the shiny picture.
