Orly's got the blues...BM203

Dear Readers,
For this post I decided to include a few shots of what it looks like on my kitchen table when I set up to do my manicure.

The design I used comes from Bundle Monster's plate 203.  I like the interlocking shapes - they are bold, but let enough of the base colour show.

 I used Orly Bonder to get it started. I used 2 coats of Royal Navy for the base colour. Then I used Snowcone to stamp.  Not all polishes can be used to stamp, but this one is really pigmented, so I gave it a try. Luckily it worked very well, even over a darker coloured base.

Hope you didn't mind all the pics.  Do you like more than one or two pics in a post?  I was having fun with my camera...

Please leave me a comment - it's always great to hear from you!

I've been neglecting you...

Dear Readers,

I hope there are some of you still interested in my blog. I know I'm guilty of going AWOL! I can't believe I haven't posted in months! Woah - when did all that time fly by? I've just been super busy with work and my family.  I'm also trying to get into shape, so that's been a focus for my spare time lately.

I actually did take some pics of my mani's but haven't taken the time to edit and post them.  So I'll try to get a few posts up to make up for lost time....

Here's a mani I wore for awhile.  I really liked how it turned out because I dabbed a few different pinks on each nail to get a mottled looking base coat.  Then I stamped over it in black.  And just in case that wasn't busy enough, I added a topcoat that had a bit of shimmer in it.  Wouldn't you like to meet the glam snake that produces this snakeskin?

I didn't take a pic until I'd worn it for quite a few days, unfortunately.  (So that explains the big space around my cuticles!)

I've gotta catch up on reading blogs and posting more for you guys. Stick with me!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
