Winter Dragonflies?

I'm not sure why it took me so long to use this image as it was one of my favourite images of the latest set of Shirley's plates that I received before Christmas.



This pix was taken in my bathroom...while the lighting wasn't the best, you can see the accent polish and rhinestones a little better so I thought I'd include it!



Started with two coats OPI Do You Lilac It?



Added a couple accent nails of Fashion Bug Red Multi which I picked up at Fashion Bug during one of my past cross border trips to US; one coat.



Stamped using Konad royal purple special polish using Big SdP M.



Added a few rhinestones on accent nail.



Then filled in the wings of with the same accent stamping polish, Fashion Bug Red Multi.



I also added some more rhinestones on my thumb for another dragonfly but wasn't really thrilled with it.



I've used this image now a few times with different colour combinations...and am sure I will use it a few more when spring and summer finally arrives!

Hope you're having a fantastic weekeend; thanks for looking!
