Throw Back Thursday--I lied!

Hi Readers!  Remember my gorgeous Ruffian jeweled colors from last week?  You know the one I said was too pretty to stamp on? Well I lied!  The next day I DID stamp on it and IT'S EVEN BETTER THAN BEFORE!  I really had no idea if this would work, I wanted to stamp using Illamasqua but didn't know if they would stamp well.  I talked to a few of my nail polish friends and they all said go for it so I did!  I stamped with the corresponding base color on top of the It's My Turn and for the most part they all worked.  Sally Girl Phat was a bit light but that's okay.
Here's the amped up Ruffian!
Isn't my peacock ring cool??? I got it on ebay awhile ago!
Here's a close up of the mani
And of course a shot with flash!
Wow I am so glad I didn't let this mani just sit at no stamping!

To get this look I stamped over my Ruffian Mani with the corresponding base coat color then I filled in some of the holes in the stamped image.  I used BM212 for my stamped image.
To recap from last week here are the polishes I used

What do you think readers?  Was I smart to take the plunge and stamp over an already great looking mani or should I have left it as is?

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
