Digit-al Dozen Does Food; Day 2

It's Day 2 of Digit-al Dozen food week.  I've always had it in the back of my mind to do a mani with grapes (don't ask me why lol) so finally put something down on nails now that I had a reason with this challenge! Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of mishmash nails; starting at thumb, polishes used are L'Oreal Safari Chic, L'Oreal Sand Castle, Essie Full Steam Ahead and Essie Maximillian Strasse-Her; all two coats.

Sponged on middle and ring finger with Sally Hansen Mardi Grape (how appropriate lol!)

Topped all with KBShimmer Clearly on Top prior to stamping.

Added a few leaves from an image from FUN 15 using LA Colors Jungle Fever. I was concerned about it showing up on the thumb so first stamped it with chocolate brown, then lime green then the darker green.  Pretty cool effect, I think.

Added more stamping; used Infinity 25 on middle and FUN 15 on ring finger using Funky Fingers Dark Knight.

Added grapes using image from DRK XL Designer 2.  The darker grapes are stamped with Orly La Playa and the lighter on the thumb was a mix of Sally Hansen Mardi Grape and white.  I was trying to match the lilac colour on the gradient but got something totally different.  In hind sight, the darker colour probably would have showed up OK on the thumb.

Added coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

This is another one of those manis that I thought would look better matte so added coat of Essie Matte About You to finish.  I especially loved how the gradient turned out matte; need to do this again some time!

And while note the best job, I did other hand slightly different; really liked how it turned out too!

Here's the other ladies Day 2 food and snack mani's!
