Tweety Bird!

I've been pondering this mani for a few weeks. Three coats of OPI Banana Bandana; stamped using two images from SdP C-14 with Konad special polishes in apple green, sky pearl and metallic pink.




Here's mani in progress. Three coats of OPI Banana Bandana. It was pretty sheer and needed three coats to cover all the bare spots. It's a soft yellow in real life; although in some of these pix, it leans on the lime/green side, but yellow it is.




Then stamped.




I thought I would add some white dots to make the flowers pop.



But in all honestly, after I did it, I regretted it as it washed out the coloured and I liked the look before the white dots. As it didn't have the look I was going for, I added another dot in the dot using the same colour of stamping polish to give the flowers a bit more colour. I messed up a couple of them but all in all, I was pretty pleased with this dotting as it wasn't the easiest to do. Dotting (to me) is harder than it looks!



Thanks for looking!
