Antique Looking Valentine's Day Mani

Another Valentine's Day mani; this one's isn't overly traditional nor overly funky.... antique looking to me...and I love how it turned out!

Started with a base of one coat of Chanel Taboo, no topcoat.  While one coat had pretty good coverage IRL, the pix don't do it justice and I should have done two for ....I'm just not a fan of the very sheer coverage at the tips and two would have been a better choice.

Layered with one coat of Shimmer Lorene**, no topcoat.

These pix have topcoat.

Stamped using CND gold chrome using Big SdP A.

Topped with SV to finish.  I think this mani looks pretty antique-y looking...which will be a good fit for the start of next weeks Digit-al Dozen theme; the posts will start on Monday.

While this pix isn't in focus, I like how all the sparklies show through it!

Still using Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter A-Peel and it's still working like a charm!

This picture is during the day in overcast skies; it high lights the glitter/stamping contrast best although not the best for my skin tone lol!

Hope you're having a great weekend....and thanks for looking!
