Sultry, Studded Mani with IBD Just Gel Scarlett Obsession

Affiliate Links

Hello Loves. A few months ago, I received a package from a friend with this little beauty inside: IBD Just Gel Scarlett Obsession. This one has been on my wish list for a while, so it was a pleasant surprise! Thanks Sarah Jane!  I couldn't resist pairing it with a little bit of stamping and a few studs and crystals.

This mani was inspired by Kim's masterpieces at Ten Little Canvases, though it's no where near as creative as her designs!  She has inspired me so much with her stud and crystal placement manicures.

Scarlett Obsession is a gorgeous, dark, seductive red shimmer that positively glows from within. Application was quite nice. The polish is densely pigmented and is opaque in two-three coats.

I then stamped the ring finger with this incredible script image from the Messy Mansion Scriptorium Plate (MM 24) in Mundo de Unas Black.  For the center accent nail, I created the design with the small golf leaf studs and tiny round studs from In The Nail Room and an SS6 crystal from Ebay.  I added gold leaf studs to the other nails as well to tie it all together.  I'm having so much fun with these super small studs from In The Nail Room.  They're just so versatile!

Want to see a close up of the stud and crystal accent nail?  I'm really pleased with how this one turned out.  :)  Sadly, it is so shiny and blingy that it freaked out my camera.  I couldn't get a crisp shot because the camera kept trying to focus on the light reflections.
