Black and White Filigree and Joe Twilight
Hi everyone! Happy Easter!
Sorry I didn't wind up getting any Easter themed manicures done for this weekend, but I did continue to play with my stamps. I did this filigree manicure to match a black and cream outfit. That pic up top is a bit too blue, but the one below is more accurate. You can see where I dinged my middle finger, thinking my polish was dry enough to rifle through my bag. I was in a frantic hurry to get out the door to a critique and I should have given it just a few more minutes.
I used 3 coats of a frankened Sally Hansen X-Treme Wear White On, which I added several drops of yellow to get it to a more creamy colour. I stamped using GOSH Nero and image plate BM21, and had to double stamp every nail except my pinkies.
I am really REALLY excited about the new Bundle Monster plates! eee!
This is two coats of Joe Twilight over 1 coat of Joe Moss. I should have used one more coat of Moss underneath but it still looked good. Joe has a Matte top coat which I picked up the other day and have yet to try out. I also got a Joe metallic purple called Grape which I hope will stamp.
Joe is a Canadian brand of polish, available through Superstore.
Thank you everyone for stopping by and I hope you all have a good weekend with family or friends or chowing down on a huge chocolate bunny(that's me)-- however you roll through Easter!
