Gray Glitter Stamped Nails

Here's a mani I came up a few weeks ago using CH14, one of the image plates offered in my giveaway and part of the 26 set of plates offered by Cheeky-Beauty on Amazon (when they are in stock!).

Started with a base of Orly Mirror Mirror, two coats.

Topped with two coats of OPI My Pointe Exactly. As I mentioned before, I used a base because I don't like seeing VNL on me, My Pointe Exactly does add another element to the mani that may not translate well in the pix.

Added one coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle. I adore this glitter! Can easily see it used so often! It is by no means is a dupe to Nubar White Dot which I have too as the added element of the silver glitter.

Stamped using Black Konad special polish using CH14. Black/grey/charcoal is a fave combination of mine (hopefully you're not bored with seeing it so often!). This was another mani that I failed in stamping, not only at the tips, which I used a brush and painted them in, but really messed up on the flower on my index finger which I removed with a brush and some acetone, as you can see here where there is the big area with nothing in it.

I then stamped in a new flower on the index finger (its still not 100% *sigh*).  Then, for a little colour interest, added a few random dots using red Konad special polish.

Topped with SV.

Tonight, I have to try to come up with something interesting (hopefully, anyway!) for the Adventures in Stamping challenge...which is a mani WITHOUT, that's a challenge!

Hope you're having a great weekend!
