If you aren’t yet following my facebook page, here’s the link - there are picture albums of my swatches and I heard a little bird sing that there’ll be a giveaway soon!
Since it’s Saturday, and Saturday is going-out-day, I decided to go over the top with today’s manicure. I started of with 2 coats of OPI Do you think I’m Tex-y?, which is my pink challenge nail polish, and then stamped over the whole nail with a design from my essence stamping plate. As a stamping colour I used Nicole by OPI Positive Energy, which my friend Marcy recommended for stamping. It really works very well!
I’m still very new at stamping, but exept for a tiny bald spot on my middle finger I think it worked out very well. I hope you’re satisfied with my stamping skills for now, as this is obviously not the end of my manicure! When I mean over the top, I do mean very much over the top! So I added another coat of OPI Do you think I’m Tex-y?. Since it’s a jelly and very sheer, it works perfectly for all layering adventures one can think of. I just wish there was a green version of it!
Anyhow, after that I added small pearles and rhinestones from another essence nail art kit that I bought in the spur of the moment. I don’t usually go for rhinestones – actually, never – but I felt that since it is challenge week, why not try?
What do you think of my stamping & rhinstone & little pearls that look like water drops manicure?
Be sure to see what the other pink ladies are up to, because there are some great inspirations for pink manicures!
