Layering and Stamping...

....and far too many pictures of it! This past weekend, I thought I'd do my nails while sitting on the deck, along with reading a book in between coats. I was away for the weekend but my weekends are usually pretty busy even though I'm suppose to be at the cottage *relaxing*. It was the first time in a long time that I could just sit there, relax, enjoy the view and read. It was a perfect day; not too hot, not too cold and sunny. This is what I ended up with.

Mani in progress; two coats of Misa Glitz, Glamour, Smile for the Camera. Judging from these pix, it seems to have me the dreaded lobster hands! Oh well! I never let this bother me or discourage me from using a polish and certainly not in the case, as it is very pretty.

Then layered with one coat of OPI I Lily Love You.

I took a couple pix; the one above is in sunlight; the one below is in the shade.

Then stamped with SdP 38 using Konad special polish in black.

Lastly, added a few dots using Nicole by OPI Postive Energy (and if you see a few dots on my thumb in the other pix, it was because I was undecided if I was going to use the black stamping polish and I was trying out the end result look before I finished the mani!).

I took a couple pix; the one above is in sunlight; the one below is in the shade.

My weekends away are drawing to a close for another year as we usually close up the weekend after Thanksgiving (and that's in October in Canada!). I sure hope that this weekend has good relaxing on the deck, looking at the view, reading a book, doing your nails-weather again!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!


  1. Such a breathtaking polish. Loved it with the flakes <3

  2. I Lily Love you looks great over your base polish. I like it in general, but this is a particularly good combination.

  3. I love this! I need to get on ordering some of these SdP plates because I'm sure they'll take a while to arrive. And now I need I Lily Love you, it looks awesome!

  4. That is so cute!!!! I love the colors!
