I am tickled pink at how nice my fauxnadicure turned out!
9 pictures, 3 different light sources.

Fluorescent light... Overall, most color accurate
With the exception of black, all the stamping polishes are my newest frankens, and were created specifically to give my faunadicures more dimension.
All the traditional stamping polishes I've used tend to be one dimensional and just sit there on top of the nail. Not a good look if you're into multiple colors and layering.
With that in mind, I used a mixture of- polishes and pigments that have a flash, shimmers, frosts, metallics, and in the 2 greens used today, holos. I really love how my frankens turned out...they seem to sit deep within the mani. It's very similar to the difference between a pattern woven into a silk scarf opposed to a pattern printed on a silk scarf. The woven pattern is more dimensional and richer.
I'm having so much fun messing with these frankens...there is always the element of surprise. ? I don't know what finish within the stamping polish will dominate until I apply a top coat. (Base color also changes what the stamping polish will do.) The franken I used for the cherries is actually a light coral, but after applying Seche, it looks like a hot, glowing, cherry red over Nina Ultra Pro Love Struck!
Oooops! For got to give plate numbers...
Cherries- essence rectangular plate (from a swap with the lovely Tiana) and partials from BM21
branch thingies- fauxnad A07
I also forgot to post this...
Does this happen to anyone else?
Mani is FULLY cured, but without top coat. It is NOT dentable.
Granted, I sleep on my hands as well as have them under my pillow. As per my dh, the area doesn't go over body temp- 98.6.
Odd that a temp of 98.6 softens polish enough to do this.
