Don't know why I choose this as my first post. Guess it is the combination of originality (in all my blog hopping I have not seen this stamp used) and good photography. I don't get to photograph in the sun much since I always do my nails at night - hence the name - and I usually change them too quickly :) Please forgive the tip wear and cuticle flooding. I was still perfecting my polishing techniques at this point.
- The base color for this is Sinful Colors - Cloud Nine (Orange)
- Stamped with Konad - Special Black (this is a ***** to clean up, but the best stamping black) and Bundle Monster plate 217 (or Mash 06). This is a french tip stamp, but I used it for a half moon. This left quite a bit of the orange showing through around the edges so I used a small paint brush to touch up the areas I wanted with black acrylic paint (a lot easier to manipulate in small places than polish).
- Finally I painted from the end of the stamp to the tips with Fantasy Makers - Nail in the Coffin, which has a very subtle halo glitter in it.
This was one of my Halloween themed mani's. I'm sure those are supposed to be flowers, but they look like amoebas or alien eyes to me - hence Halloween. Hope you like!
