Prince Tribute Mani

I was as shocked as most to hear of the sudden passing of Prince last week.  So when I sat down to do my nails last night, while I was humming Little Red Corvette....then Purple Rain.....then When Doves Cry, I did this mani.  

Started with a base of two coats of Lippmann Shoshanna; shown with no top coat.  

While I really wanted to do a water marble base, there's not enough purple Pipe Dreams and I was experimenting with some other polishes and wasn't have that great success.  So decided to go with some sponging for added interest using L'Oreal Pop of Plaid and Essie Shade On.  

After topping with top coat, stamped with Chez Divers 005 using Funky Fingers Gesso.

Added some silver glitter using Konad glitter stripper.

Added image from MoYou Roxy Collection-06 using Funky Fingers Dark Knight.

Made a couple stamper decals.

MoYou Rockstar Collection-13

Added stamper decal which was an image from MoYou Rockstar Collection-13.

Stamped an image from MoYou Back to the 70's-01.  Modified it a bit by removing mouth and added a bit more hair to make it more like the hairstyle I see Prince rocking.  Added some funky purple glasses.  Stamped rain drops on pinky using UberChic UC 3-03, then stamped image on pinky using an image from Fab Ur Nails FUN 4.

Added couple of purple doves using an image from MdU 1.

Added Little Red Corvette decal on thumb, added 1999 from MoYou Zodiac 16, lips from MoYou Bridal Collection-01 (ticked I didn't use smaller lips as I had pulled the image but forgot about it) , Kiss from Chez Divers 001, and music notes from Chez Musique 001.  

MoYou Zodiac Collection-16, 

Top coated it all with Girly Bits What A Rush QD TC to finish.

RIP, Prince.

Thanks for looking!
