Here's the Day 3 mani that I skipped posting earlier this week for the Digit-al Dozen spring challenge. Unfortunately, just didn't have enough time to do the blog post even though I had the nails done and uploaded so sorry about that. This mani features the spring saying, "April Showers, Bring May Flowers!" Here's what I came up with!
Started with a sponged gradient using KBShimmer Leggo My Mango, KBShimmer Bahama Drama and Girly Bits Hoop! There It Is. Unfortunately, these pix don't show the vibrancy of the nails; they were much brighter in person. Also, the darker part of the gradient that the Girly Bits was used is more pink, not orange/coral looking as shown.
Topped with Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC before stamping.
Stamped using MdU 4 (smaller words on index and ring), Marianne n.99 (flowers on pinky and thumb), FUN 15 (couple on middle), Nailways Back to Basics 123 ABC (April on index) and UberChic UC 3-03 (raindrops on middle). I had every intention of using the words April Showers.. from the Marianne n.99 plate but even with shrinking, couldn't get the images small enough to fit my nails. I think perhaps if I had have double stamped them using two UC Luxe stampers, they might have fit but didn't think of it at the the time. I did individual letters for April but ended up using the MdU 4 plate for the rest, but I wish the images are just a smidgen too small.

Topped with Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC to finish.
We had more than our share of showers this past week; I guess spring is right around the corner! I even seen a robin this morning so I guess it is right on time with the official arrival of spring tomorrow!
Here's the other ladies Day 3 mani's!
Thanks for looking!
