Del Sol Trick-or-Treat Konad

I wanted to play around a bit with Del Sol's latest seasonal polish, Trick-or-Treat, to see how it worked as a Konad stamping polish. If you missed my original post showing Trick-or-Treat, you can view that here. Below is an indoor photo of Color Club's Hocus Pocus from their Bewitching Halloween mini set. This also has the Del Sol polish stamped over it using plate #m70.

Below: After less than 15 seconds in the sun, not only do you see the mess around my nails that I couldn't see before coming outside--ha, ha!--, but the stamping image shows up.

Below: In the shade after just a few seconds, the image begins to fade.

Below: Macro shot in the shade.

This was just a very quick look I did, but I can imagine quite a few of the possibilities using Trick-or-Treat. If you have an image plate with Halloween themes, you could paint your nails orange and then stamp Trick-or-Treat over them. I wonder how this would look if it were sponged over a lighter shade? A French tip over green or orange for Halloween, as a base color then Konad stamped with black...lots of potential for this shade. It's not a color in or out of the sun that is specific to Halloween, so it isn't limited to just this season.

Can you think of any good combinations, ideas or designs that Trick-or-Treat would work well for?
