New plates arrived earlier this week. As sick as I was....and considering vision was a little iffy with eye infection in both eyes, I couldn't wait to use my new plates....this was what I came up with.
Started with a base of two coats of China Glaze Lemon Fizz and FingerPaints Black Expressionism.
Stamped with black Konad special polish and FAB UR NAILS Magno Shake using Apipila G04.
Apipila G04 plate looks like this....how cute is this, eh?
Isolated the smaller beehive and bees from the full size nail design and added them to a couple of the nails as seen on the index and ring finger here.
Added random dots using same polishes here and there for interest.
I'm loving these stamping polishes from FAB UR NAILS. One of my stamping wants has always been colours that stamp well over dark colours and these polishes work well. For comparison purposes, below is FAB UR NAILS Mango Shake on the left and Konad yellow on the left. Really impressed with the colour pigmentation on Mango Shake and how bright it stamps on black.
My Apipila order, all cutely packaged.....my first Jade, which was a kind extra!!!
Couple pix of the plates. I've tested 50% of the plate and so far, the ones I've tested stamp well.
Another pix. See Pink Panther? Sandwiched between Snoopy and Woodstock and Lisa Simpson? For that image alone, I bought this plate...the rest were just an added bonus (pondering a mani to make use of the Pink Panther image...hmmmm!)
Apipila is available here. I emailed the gal because I found the website a little challenging even with translation. The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks everyone for your well wishes. I'm feeling better but judging that my daughter has had this nasty bug for three weeks, and I'm confident I got it from her, I think its going to be around for a while. The worst is the sore throat and the eye infection; if they went away, I could deal with the dry cough. But I'm sure I'll be back to normal, whatever that may be!, soon!
Hope you're having a fantastic weekend. Off to do a Goth mani for the FB AiS challenge....I think it's going to be a challenge for sure! Thanks for looking!
