My Monkey Does Flowers

Monday means another Monkey See Monkey Do challenge from Crumpet Nail Tarts.

I was inspired by one of my favorite nail bloggers, Marta from Chit Chat Nails.  Check the original gorgeous mani HEREHer's is so much better than mine!

This started with two coats of LVX Legendaire.  This is a gorgeous dusty lavender.  However, it was not a very good self leveler, as you can see from the pics.  Although it is pretty, I wish I had picked a brighter color.

Next I sponged the tips with Sally Hansen Silver Sweep.  In Marta's version, she used silver foil, which I really wish I had in my stash.

Next I stamped with M76 and Konad Special Black.

Finally I dotted with China Glaze Splish Splash and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lightening.

Thanks for looking and check out the rest of the Monkies.

    1. Thanks Lisa! This is one of those that I am not totally happy with but was just happy that I completed it on time.

  2. Yours are lovely!
    I realy prefer the base color you used in yours.


  3. I'm so glad that my recent manicure inspired such a lovely manicure in your MSMD post. Love how you used that stamp :D *hugs*

  4. So so lovely :)
    I admire anyone who can stamp this good :D
    I can´t stamp for the life of me.. I dunno what´s wrong.. when I try the design sort of stick up from the nail and SLOWLY sink down towards the nail ending up all wonky :/

    1. Thanks! Stamping is one of those things that can take practice. I am working on a stamping mani right now that I have redone like 3 times!
