Hello polish lovers! Happy hump day; YAY half way to the weekend!
Tonight I have some fun girlie nails to share with you. They involve some stamping, stardust polish and a lil bling.
My base color is a Julep Mara. Mara is a textured orchid pink/purple polish with an ultra subtle glitter shimmer which Julep calls a stardust finish. Mara is very pretty all on its own but I just had to add a little something to her.
Playing with my newest Pueen plate no 110 I added a couple different images. This plate is what you might call a buffet plate. It has multiple flowers and butterflies in all shapes and sizes. A perfect way to add some “summer” to your favorite base color.
I did a 3:2 look: On my thumb, index and pinky I added some cute butterflies with Konad black stamping polish. Then for something different on my middle and ring fingers I added some cute flowers. I actually layered stamps on these fingers, first using a purple Bundle Monster stamping polish called Optical Illusion and then applying the same image using black Konad again in a slightly different position. For a lil bling I added a couple rhinestones that I got in a Julep box a few months ago.
I think these turned out pretty cute. I especially love the butterflies!! I do wish the rhinestone was a little more blingy and was kind of hoping the stardust finish would sparkle more like pixie dust but that’s ok it is still cute.
Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
Stay tuned for the next installment of the diary of a nail polish addict.
