I love my husband. He is so thoughtful that he pulled out 4 polishes for me to use...2 different sets of 2 polishes. He wanted me to have options. Well, I just used all 4 instead. I knew that I was going to use my MDU Dark Gray for stamping no matter what he picked - it was just a matter of choosing the right stamp.
He is obsessed with my texture polishes! I had to figure out a way to use all of these colors and incorporate stripes. I haven't done any fall manicures yet, and that was his inspiration, so I went with it. I settled on a Nimbus mani and I am super glad I did! I started with Hanging In The Balance and played with the level of opacity before moving on to Toe-Tally Textured. This one was a bit harder because of how textured the polish is.
I put down Sun-Sational next. It didn't take too much to get a nice yellow hue. Next, I added some Destiny to the mix. This is kind of a jelly so, it took a bit more to get the red color in there. It still wasn't popping enough, so I added a little bit of Sinful Colors Snow Me White to layer a little white in to put the red on top of it. That worked out perfectly!
The colors all blended together reminds me of fall foliage and crunchy leaves. I love it! I added a layer of my trusty Seche Vite to prepare for stamping. I used GA15 for the stamping image. I was a little bummed that my image wasn't straight on one nail...I was shaking because I was so hungry! I actually had to take a break to eat during this one...LOL!
