|Colourful Cartoon Mani - Version 2.0|
The black polish I used was OPI's '4 in the Morning' from their Gwen Stefani collection. This was my first time using this particular polish. I was on the fence about buying it for the longest time (truthfully, I had pretty much chosen to pass on it) until I decided on a whim yesterday to buy it to try it out with this manicure. This polish is really all about the formula. The semi-matte finish reminds me of black rubber! In the picture above, my index and middle fingers look slightly shinier than the polish looks in real life, because I had just applied some cuticle oil prior to taking the shot. The pinky finger gives a more accurate depiction of how the polish actually looks.
After the first 2 changes, I decided the manicure needed a little something extra to tie it all together. I went ahead and stamped some other cartoon/doodle themed images, which were from the same image plate that I used for the accent nails (Moyou London Princess collection 11). I used another polish I bought yesterday, China Glaze's 'Kiss my Glass'. I was going for a subtle, monochromatic look in order to add a little more visual interest, but to not compete with the super colourful accent fingers.

Because of how subtle the stamping was, it was really hard to get a picture that showed the stamping well enough! The photo above is the best I could do to show the gunmetal on black stamping, and the photo below is a photo of the entire look.
