Spring Has Sprung!

I was so preoccupied with world events surrounding the corona virus (covid-19) that I failed to realize that spring has already arrived!  So I thought I would share some spring-like nails that will hopefully lift your spirits, if even just for a few minutes in case you are like me and thinking about it more than is probably good for you!

I initially had these pegged for Digit-al Dozen Unmastered Techniques week which didn't happen, this mani showed how I failed to line up the layered stamping images well.  In fact, I was so off on some of these, that I hand painted in some floral embellishments!  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of three coats of Morgan Taylor Strike A Posie, no top coat.

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

For the layered roses, used images from UberChic UC 12-03 using MdU 68, then topped with MdU 112 and then MdU 39 for leaves.

Did accent lines using Lina Feeling Shapely! 01 using Painted Polish Blanc Slate.  Still haven't mastered straight lines either; will have to keep this in mind if this theme is revisited!

Then added a couple more roses on the accent nails using same plate and polishes as noted above.  Except I didn't do any leaves using the plates, I free handed the leaves (another unmastered technique!)  This is probably the extent of my free hand skills!

Added a few dots for filler and interest.

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

This was Ms. Cindy; please excuse dry cuticles, etc. but the intent here is to show that I think the line up of the layering is better on it than my other hand! How is that even possible, yet it is!  It was nice to have matching hands for once too; that doesn't happen that often!

Thanks for looking!
