Spangled and Blue

Today I have yet another reprise on a common theme: diagonal contrasting colors with stamps. Only this time, I added gemstones!


The base of this manicure is the beautiful I’d Rather Be With Blue by KBShimmer. Unlike the other polishes I have shown you from KBShimmer, this one is very simple and quite pretty! It is a blue matte with tiny silver glass flecks. Shown here is two thin coats. Given that my nails are still neon pink, two thin coats is pretty impressive!


I then stamped over the blue polish, added a black diagonal (Sinful Colors – Black on Black), silver striping tape, and gems. Unfortunately, I dinged my ring finger and tried to re-draw the swirls in black. Fail. Oops!



I do wish I had re-matted this manicure, I think it would have been more interesting! But I like it regardless.



Now I want to do more matte manis! If only I could come up with some fun themes…
