Any who...I am entering the Crumpet's amateur nail art contest. I hope to be able to make it into the finals. Since I am a super newbie I am asking that all of you vote for my design if you like it! No pressure! I still want to share it with you though. I chose to do a "skittle" manicure. I have a problem with being matchy matchy sometimes so this takes me way out of my comfort zone!!
I used a base of two colors only. The blue is OPI Ogre the Top Blue (One of the most beautiful blues I own!!) and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I used one coat of Ogre the Top Blue and then applied Color Club Beyond the Mistletoe. For some reason I think a good skittle or skittlette mani has to have one glitter nail. On the pinkie I stamped with Mash image plate 45 using Sally Hansen Insta Dri Brisk Blue and filled in the center of the flowers with Color Club Beyond the Mistletoe. On my ring finger I used Mash white stamping polish to stamp a flower from Konad m82 and filled the center with a clear stone. On my middle finger I stamped with a fauxnad (Konad dupe plate same plate but not Konad but just as good) m73 with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Brisk Blue. Finally I used Cheeky plate CH 50 (This image was horrible to stamp) and stamped with Sally Hansen Inst Dri Whirlwind White and filled in the center of the flower with Color Club Beyond the Mistletoe. Wow there was a lot going on.
