This is one of those manis....the kind where you have a plan and in the midst of it all....it changes....for the better!
Let's have a reminder of the 3 colors.
Zoya Skylar - Layla STE 07 - Essence Grey to Be Here
Skylar is a lovely dusky blue crelly filled with gold and silver micro flecks. Zoya describes it as a "steel blue", which I think fits perfectly!
Next I sponged Grey to Be Here diagonally across the tip.
The plan was to add some glitter on top of the sponging and then stamp with something diagonally also. Once I completed the sponging though, it looked so much like clouds in the sky, I changed my plans. Birds and butterflies...I needed birds and butterflies!
Oh so many plates! The key was that Shany plate 203. It took me awhile of having this plate before I realized that the image is a bird on a branch!
After stamping all the images I used my fine detail brush to fill with Layla STE 07 and China Glaze Gold Fusion.
I like how this turned out. For once a plan that changed for the good! Sorry about the poor clean up. This was completed about 1 am and with the Essence sponging being so light in color, I didn't even notice the mess at the lateral edges until I saw the pictures long after this mani was gone from my tips.
Once again, thanks for looking and commenting. See you tomorrow with a Fashion Friday/Nail Challenge Collaborative combo I am excited to show you!
