The sun was out and I was home before it went down. How did that happen? So you get to see my tips ouside...no gloves....So forgive me if they look a little blue (tee hee).
The theme for Let It Snow Challenge today is winter blues. Since I recently got a lot of Indie polish, I knew I would use one of them.
I started with two coats of LynBDesign Don't Torture Me from her Dweam Wiffin a Dweam collection. You can purchase this lovely blue at Jenna's Etsy shop HERE. I had such a hard time capturing the color on this gorgeous blue...still don't think I succeeded. My camera kept acting like it was a neon! Is there such a thing as a neon pastel? Jenna describes this as a light blurple. I would describe this as a periwinkle blue, which leans purple, and which I just couldn't capture very well. Imagine this with a lilac tone. It is filed with semi translucent white matte glass flakes, that give it a very interesting finish.
Here I took a pic with a light baby blue cloth, so you can get a sense of the dusty, yet bright, blue color. I loved this so much that I didn't want to clutter it up too much with nail art, so I did a simple accent stamping.
I started by stamping the ring and thumb with Bundle Monster BM-315. Next I stamped with a partial image from LeaLac XL plate B. I was going for a laced netting look. Once again, I am in love with my LeaLac Plate, but I need more practice stamping to get things lined up the way I want. I can only hope I get better with time.
I got soooo many compliments on this, kids, coworkers and patients. Everyone wanted to know what this color was. You should have seen the confused, bemused and vacant stares when I said it was an Indie. If they seemed interested enough, I explained, if not the I just said it was a handmade polish you can buy on Etsy. Honestly, I have never had so much attention for such a simple mani, and I blame it all on Don't Torture Me!
If you haven't noticed, I have been having fun trying to "hand pose" with different objects, not my typical top coat bottle. Here I chose a faceted pearl necklace. They matched so perfectly, I couldn't resist :)
Check all the other winter blues. Only two more challenges left :( Time to start looking for another?
