Hello loves! Today's manicure is something a little different. I'm dealing with some difficult issues in my personal life and it has put me in a bit of a creative funk. So I put out an inspiration/request thread on facebook. The first response was a nail art challenge by Heather from acidicice. Be sure to check out her blog for some great nail art using RNP. :) Heather suggested "Pink, black, purple and silver skittle. Stamping, studs and stripes. And...go!" Challenge accepted! Heather, are you sure you didn't want to throw anything else at me to go with it? lol ;)
Ok, ok, so I can't follow directions. I missed the "skittle" part, but I did incorporate all of the colors (purple, pink, silver and black) with stripes, stamping and studs. And every nail is different, so I'm calling this one a win.
Ready for the details? I started with FingerPaints Gel in Hue Do You He-Art (swatched here) for the purple and IBD Just Gel All Heart (swatched here) for the pink. The stripes are freehand with Couture Gel Polish Strapless Gown (swatched here) and Little Black Dress (swatched here).
I then stamped with Konad Black stamping polish and an image from Pueen 49 from the Love Elements Set. I added dots of Strapless Gown over the center dots in the image to tie it all together. Finally, I topped it off with a few 3mm square studs from Amazon on the pinkie and index fingers.
