Finger Foods Oriental Nail Art

Today I have a mani for the Finger Foods Theme Buffet.  The prompt is Oriental, suggested by Dawn from Sassy Little Nails.  There are a lot of things I could have done with this prompt because....well, I have a lot of oriental stamping images :)  I thought bamboo or pandas or cherry blossoms.  This is what I ended up with.

Yup, just some koi fish, but with some really gorgeous polish.

Artificial Light

I started with three coats of Revlon Elusive and top coat.  It was fully opaque at two, but I wanted a little more depth with the glitters.  This is what I wanted Emily de Molly Black Forest to be like.  One of those rare times that a mainstream outshines an indie.

You might have noticed that I indicated I used a top coat.  This is why.  Some may like it with this matte finish, but I like it better shiny as it allows the glitters to shine through.

Next I stamped with Messy Mansion MM09 and...Of course I didn't write it down!  Some metallic orange.

That is all for now.  Thanks for looking and commenting!

  3. Приветики! Хотелось бы открыть парикмахерскую, ищу любую полезную информацию для написания бизнес плана. Может у кого-то есть опыт в таком бизнесе? Сейчас большой выбор оборудования для парикмахерских и салонов красоты. Выбираю между компаниями Спа шоп, Venko, Kes laser, New face beauty, Укр мед гарант. В таком количестве информации самой разобраться тяжело( Скажите где дешево купить ультразвуковые мойки?
