Garden of the Golden Flower

And now for a DRAMATIC change of pace…stamping done beautifully! This mani was incredibly simple and looked fantastic, if I do say so myself 🙂

I started with a base of Monet’s Garden by Emily de Molly. The last time I showed this polish was over Christmas, and I did NOT do it justice (darn lighting in the bathroom at my parent’s house) so here it is again, in its glowy teal glory. Monet’s Garden is a crazy mix of glitter (red, purple, light green, dark green, holo bits) in a green-tinged teal base. Shown here is three coats (the top coat just because MORE GLITTER, not because I needed it). The glitter payoff is incredible, they are well-suspended and you don’t have to dig at all.

I then made a stamping decal using Bundle Monster plate 616, and coloring in the petals with gold polish. The center of the flower was first painted with black and white glitter polish, and then covered over in gold. The whole thing was trimmed and placed on my nail. AND IT LOOKED AWESOME!

Hope you enjoyed this as much as I did! It’s nice to feel successful after a few failed nail attempts (aka the beginning of this week. Oy)!
