First day is hearts, so this is what I came up with.
I really liked how this turned out, although I don't think that the colors are very complementary to my skin. But when have I ever let that matter (tee hee)!
I started with two coats of Ulta Cream of the Crop. I love this color, even if it is not flattering to my skin tone. I seriously looks like butter....SERIOUSLY. I had to go compare and placed my nails next to the butter in the kitchen....yep....exactly the same color. I love the softness of this yellow. I doesn't scream "Look at me! I'm YELLOW". It whispers "Hello, I'm not white, a bit more than cream, just a little bit on the yellow side." Gorgeous!
On top of that I stamped with Konad Special Black and my new LeaLac XL B stamping plate. This came just this last week from Llarowe and I have a serious crush on it. You can find it HERE.
The images on this plate are HUGE! If you have large nail beds, this is the plate for you. The pattern I chose looks like wallpaper pattern. You cant see it very well in the plate pic (sorry) but the center of where I added hearts has this really nice scrolly detail that you can just glimpse on my index (top heart) and ring (bottom heart) fingers. And yes, I am aware that I didn't stamp straight. Still working on that. This pattern is very pretty on its own, but I wanted hearts, and they kind of looked like hearts, so I added hearts with a dotting tool and Pomegranate Autumnesque. Hmmm....Autumnesque really deserves it's own mani. It is such a lovely reddish copper color. Note to self, use Autumnesque as a base....SOON!
Bria said this looks like wallpaper....and she's right....but I really liked it. The colors, the design, it all just looks sweet and tender, just what I was looking for. Now go check out all the other hearts.
