I really love these nails! They are so cool! From a distance you just see the contrast of the red bow on the light pink nails... but as you get closer you see the white lace print.
Base: Italian Love Affair
Lace Print: Konad M71
Bow: Konad M7
Here is just one stamped nail if you want a more subtle look (However, I don't find them overwhelming when all are stamped)
Trick: This made stamping so much faster for me. I used eyeliner to draw marks near my nails for lining up the Konad image. Otherwise, I'd have to visually decide "Ok, I need space for the bow, for the first lace stamp, etc"...
And since some of you enjoyed my last photo of Pete, I thought I'd show you his unique coloring. The pattern in his fur reminds me of a turtle!
This is one of the most beautiful pastel Vday manis I've seen to date! LOVE layered stamping!!!
Awesome that you left credit for inspiration. :D Now that I've said that... I've used a mirror in photographing my latest mani. Do you know if it's just your blog that uses this prop/tool or is there another that I got the idea from? I want to edit my post and do my part in keeping the "circle of appreciation" tight!
Velvet- I don't know what it is about nail polish bloggers and cats but it seems like most of us like them! I'm much more of a cat person than a dog person!
ainos2- Yes! I saw your last post! It was very pretty :) I love layered stamping too! I find it quite difficult though... Nihrida's post really helped me on this one! AND I love Polish and Powder's idea of pulling the 2 colors together with the bow! Oh and yes, it was my idea to use the mirror for displaying my nails. I couldn't think of a neat/unique way to show my nails with the polish bottle so I ditched that and chose a mirrored image to fill the space in the bottom of my pictures :) If I want to show my thumbnail (like in my previous post) then obviously, I can't use the mirror. But in all of my other swatches I do! Thanks for liking :)
Lacquermanic- Thank you so much!
Steph- Oh that's so nice of you to say :) Thank you!
I really like your manicure! There's a LOT of valentine's day manicures all over the net, but only this one really caught my attention so far. Inspired partially by me? Well, thank you! Pete is adorable. I wanna scratch his belly.
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them! Also, don't forget to check out my links above. There you'll find a section about me, my complete list of OPI (including photos!), and other important information. Enjoy :)
