Started with a base of one coat of Duri Taming of the Shrew, with an accent of Sally Hansen CSM Greige, no topcoat (or cleanup). For the red nails, I was adding stamper decals but wanted a base coat of polish in case my stamper decal wasn't that opaque as I didn't want to see bare nail underneath.
Added a layer of Hare Swanky Soiree on accent, topped with SV.
I had made a series of stamper decals earlier in the week in preparation of doing the mani using red and black Konad special polishes.
Applied the stamper decals. The full size decal is made from an image on Apipila P.01 and the individual ones are from Big SdP E. The Konad double ended stamper also has a small poppy on it.
After I got all the stamper decals applied, I had a d'uh! moment. The full size image on Apipila P.01 is clear underneath...which means I could have just stamped it onto a red polish base! All this work (and terrible cleanup!) for nothinggggg! Grrrr! I had a plausible reason for making the stamper decal at the time but now for the life of me, I cannot remember why. Practise, I guess???!!
Added one of the small decals from Big SdP E to accent. I know one thing for sure is that I much prefer applying the smaller decals versus the full size ones which are a pain to size, clean up, etc.
I had a few of the small decals left so added them to my right hand, which I did a little different.
Please honour and remember those who died so that we have the freedom we have today.
Thanks for looking (for the second time today!)
