Today is my Dad's birthday....he shares the birth date of this famous fellow....
I did this mani last night because I knew I'd be visiting with my dad this afternoon and Elvis is one of his all time favourite artists. My dad thought the mani was very cool!
Started with a base of OPI Bride's Bouquet (white); accent is OPI Yoga-
to Get This Blue; two coats of each. Topped with SV. No picture of just base polishes as I've used Bride's Bouquet and shown it a lot and the next pix shows the accent blue well. Stamped using Konad black special polish using FAB II (Elvis head), Konad m58 (guitar), SdP D-11 (boots and cowboy hat) and BM 08 (crown on pinky).
Then added full finger image plate on accent finger using plate FAB IV with Konad white special polish. My FAB UR NAILS plates arrived late last week and it was great that I was able to use a couple of them for this mani!
Stamped a few accents using Konad red and royal purple special polishes. Image plates used were Hot Topic (skull music notes), SdP C-12 (small and medium size crowns from the image) and Konad m73 (music above cowboy hat and above). I had stamping fail here as only half the lines under the stars went on the nail...this was because I took too long in trying to position the stamp on my nails and the polish dried up. Oops! In this case, the only way I probably could have corrected it would be to remove all the stamped images because those lines are on top of Elvis' head and I doubt I could remove the stars and lines without disturbing the head image...but ultimately decided it didn't look too terribly bad so just left it. Lastly, topped with coat of SV.
Happy Birthday, Dad!
Hope you had a great weekend...and thanks for looking!
