Woohoo! Nearly the end of the week and it's Valentines Day tomorrow!
Love is in the air...
For this GOT challenge mani I knew I wanted to use my new MoYou whole image Artist plate which has little old style cherubs, cupid, hearts and flowers all over it; I just had to decide what colours... It's a shame I've only got my nubby nails at the moment, but I still managed to get a good bit of art on them :) I did consider giving myself some tips and a gel overlay (I am a training technicican after all) but I like my natural nails, no matter their size!
All the polishes I chose are well over a year into their lives and it's a Bazza special haha! I decided to go with a nude base to start with, once I'd done a couple of coats I decided I wanted it to have a slightly more pink tone to it... so I added a thin coat of pale pink and then one more coat of the nude. Perfect! I then wanted to add a little atmosphere to it so sponged on a little gold here and there. Next I used a light brown colour to stamp on the roses and cherubs; then finished with topcoat.
I just adore this stamping plate! These vintage images are gorgeous, I especially love the kissing couple on my ring finger, so cute! I'm really pleased with the way the base came out too, sooo many layers when I think about it, but it was perfect and just what I envisioned! Very delicate and romantic! What do you guys think?!
