Digit-al Dozen Does The Terrific Two's; Day 3

It's Day 3 of the Digit-al Dozen The Terrific Two's.  Today's theme features Sapphire, being the birthstone for September.  Here's what I came up with!

(Different lighting; probably more sapphire in colour!)

Started with a base of Dance Legend Sahara Crystal 44 Earth.  This is two coats, no topcoat.  One coat is good coverage for this polish but I had a few thin spots so decided to add a second coat.  Unfortunately, when I added the second coat, I didn't get the texture effect like on my other hand that only had one.

So I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top. The nails were slightly rough at this point but I knew I'd be adding stamping and another coat of top coat so left them.

My right hand.  I'm not sure how well this translates in pix but one coat clearly has much more texture than two.

Of course, I had to do some stamping!  Decided to make these nails nautical; added images from Marianne n.42 (pinky), Marianne n.31 (ring) and Wistonia Absolutely Nautical (index, middle and thumb) using white Konad special polish.

My right hand (I cannot believe how well I stamped this hand!!  I was pleased how it turned out!)

Added KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.

(The thumb image is officially one of my favourite images ever!)

One coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top on the right hand.  It was still on the gritty side but I left it.

Here's the other ladies Day 3 Sapphire nails!
