TGIF! I have today off from work, YAY! It’s actually a holiday at my company called “Cabin Fever Friday”. WoW I really do have cabin fever, it is currently -4 here in Iowa ummmm burr. Needless to say I am stuck here in my house watching movies all day and playing with nail polish; it could be worse so I will stop complaining.
Fun fact about me, we have a koi pond in our backyard. I love koi fish they are so beautiful. So when I saw Messy Mansion nail stamping plate MM29 I knew I had to have it. It took me quite awhile to obtain it. It was sold out for the longest time. But alas I finally got my claws on it.
I had no idea when I was going to play with my koi stamps but I knew the perfect combo would come to me. Sunday night I painted my nails using Zoya Rayne from the Spring 2015 Delight collection. Rayne is a gorgeous shade of blue with a teal shimmer finish, oh my how I love Rayne. Rayne is perfect on its own but as I wore it all day Monday I knew Rayne needed that koi stamp. So I rushed right home from work and stamped on the koi image from MM29 using my Konad special black polish. My nails are pretty small so I had to improvise, adding parts of the fish to different nails. Then using Julep Myriam I filled in the scales of the koi. I love how the orange red jelly polish pops over Rayne.
What do you think? This manicure has me dreaming of having a glass of vino on my deck overlooking my koi pond. Please winter GO AWAY!!
Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
