Another year has passed; 29.....again...! Or based on my mani, 18! This is my HB mani.
Very girly, girl teenage-type of mani...probably more suited to my DD but oh well. I feel 18 at heart...except I wish I had the energy of an 18 year old!
Here's mani in progress. I thought I'd try my first (I think!) ombre mani.
Starting at thumb, left to right: OPI Mod About You, OPI Pink-ing of You, Zoya Jolene, OPI Don't Know...Beets Me, and OPI Your a Pisa Work. All are two coats except Pink-ing of You, which was three.
Then stamped using Konad special polish in black. Used IP's SdP D-08, SdP C-12, SdP B-20, SdP C-18, SdP C-06 and Konad m71.
Then added a few random dots in the colours used as the base coat, and a few black using Konad black special polish. (These special polishes work great for dotting as they are really pigmented but they do dry fairly fast so you have to be quick!).
And my new plates arrived! Let's just say I'm more excited about getting new image plates than the fact that today is my birthday!!! They arrived a couple days ago, just in time to be considered a present. At least, that's the story I told my husband, and I'm sticking to it! And thanks dear, for the 3 new fall Chanels...Peridot (very birthday appropriate!), Graphite and Quartz, ahem!
Anyway, as soon as I got my new SdP IP's, I did a bit of swatching...here's some pix if you want to have a look! You may wish to click to enlarge to see more of the details. I cannot wait to do some stamping with these!
What birthday would be complete without presents? My next post will announce my latest giveaway!
Thanks for looking!
