OPI: Planks Alot, stamping, dotting oh my!

I wore this mani for 5 days... a current record for me it seems :)

The base color on this is from OPI's Pirates Collection Planks Alot. It's a super pretty soft lilac purple creme.

 I did two coats and it dried relatively fast. I wanted to jazz the mani up but I wasn't quite sure how. I used China Glaze's Platinum, which I recently purchased, to check out it's stamping ability. I would say it's not as 'in your face' as OPI's Birthday Babe but it is quite great.
After I stamped with it, the design looked like it would "disappear" depending on what light it was in.  So I got out my dotting tool and OPI's Funky Dunkey and dotted over all the dots from the Konad... It took a while because I did both hands and had never used a dotting tool before, but I have to say it turned out really really fun! In some light/angles you could see the entire design and in others, you could only see the darker purple dots. So whatever angle you were looking at it, you always saw there was some sort of  nail art happening.. Mission accomplished!
