Creative musings in bright colors

Stained Glass

This manicure was inspired by a number of ‘stained glass’ type manis I had been seeing on pinterest. Unfortunately  I had neither the time nor the stamp necessary to recreate the ones I had found…so this is a pale imitation. I will try again when I have more time to freehand!

That being said, the star polish here is STUNNING. May I present, for your viewing pleasure, Festival by piCture pOlish. Oh man. SO MANY FLAKIES! I love flakie glitter, but I only own one other (Maisie by Zoya) and this is just amazing.

Blue, green, orange, teal, pink, gold….I don’t even know how many colors are in this! It did need 3 coats to get good coverage, but they were very thin coats and they dried fast. So many colors!

The look I was going for can be seen here. I ended up using bundle monster plate 206, which has thicker lines that I would have liked. The result is cool looking, but does not look like stained glass! Next time, thinner lines. I also need to see what this looks like mattified!

If any of you noticed my little…mistake…I’m sorry. Yes, my pinky stamp is upside-down. It was late.    O.o

    Aaah, flakies! I love flakies! Your stamping turned out nice – mine would be smeared all over the place! The original does have thinner lines, helps the pretty flakies to peek through more. Beautiful photos!

  3. This one is amazing! wow! I am going to try and freehand this.. I think this one looks prettier than the original, I prefer the thicker lines!

  4. This is absolutely gorgeous! Wow :O
