This is going to be a quick little post because I need to sleep sometime! So I have joined a group that is doing blue manis for Autism Awareness Month. So this mani is pulling double duty, Monkey See Monkey Do and the Different Shades of Blue challenge. Here is the itinerary for the new challenge.
Today's theme is blue flowers. I was inspired by Rin's mani found HERE. Her's, of course, is much cuter :)
So I started with two coats of Avon Ballerina. Then I did my first freehand french manicure with China Glaze Fade Into Hue. Isn't this the most lovely periwinkle blue? I am kinda proud how my first attempt without guides turned out. It is not perfect, but then, when is a first time ever perfect, at least for me?
Next I stamped with Bundle Monster BM -315 and Barry M Blackberry. I wish I had stamped this sam image with white first to give it more dimension and opaqueness. (Wow, that is a real word, at least according to spell check.) Oh well, lesson learned.
Finally I dotted with Zoya Piaf. I really like the delicate look this shimmery pastel yellow gave this.
So go check out the other Monkey See manis.
