I am dead tired so this is going to be a quick post. Today's theme is inspired by a fabric. The fabric I chose is the carpet runner on our stairs.
And here is what I came up with.
I started with three coats of Zoya Gemma.
I have a love/hate relationship with Gemma. She is a very thin polish. I started with two thin coats and then added one last generous coat. If I was doing it right, I would have done four thin coats, but I didn't have the patience. The result was a dent on my thumb. Dry time was decent, but with the thin finish, it took too much of my time. HOWEVER, this is one of those polishes that I am willing to wear, despite the need for multiple coats. There is nothing else like it in my stash! It is a sage green that leans yellow with a teal blue shimmer. Although it doesn't show in the non-flash pic above, it does show IRL. Check out the flash picture and you can get an idea of how beautiful this really is. Although I wouldn't consider this a jelly, it really does give that jelly feel. I have heard some bloggers describe this finish as "squishy". Don't know if I would put it the same way, but it has such a depth filled silky feel. LOVE it!
Next I stamped China Glaze Kalahari Kiss and BM-206.This is a simple mani, but I really ended up liking it. One more pic and then on to the rest of the fabric covered tips.
Look at that blue shimmer showing through the stamping! What a beauty!
