Creative musings in bright colors

Purple Jungle Flowers

I have so much to say about this mani. It both did and did not come out exactly how I envisioned it. Regardless, I am submitting it for the Day 15 prompt of “delicate print” because it kinda fits?


I started with a base of two coats of Spree by Mentality, with the new-and-improved non-irritating formula. If anything, I like the new one even BETTER than the old one, because it is both shinier and denser…two thin coats was more than enough for coverage (it used to take 3-4 if I recall properly!). Spree is a pink matte with enough gold shimmer to drown in. It is a bit hard to remove, but quite pretty!


My idea was to have the pink shimmery polish show out the edges of my flowers-and-leaves mani, which is a stamping decal I created using Born Pretty Store stamping plate L008. Unfortunately, (or fortunately in other cases but this one?) the stamps are HUGE and there really wasn’t any left over space to see the pink through, except a tiny sliver of my thumb! However, this plate is STILL a little fuzzy (I used it back for “gradient day” last week as well) so my images aren’t as sharp as I’d like.


Regardless, I used 5 shades of purple, 4 shades of green, gold, black, and a holo silver to create this. Trying to curve the dark green and dark purple polish properly on the stamp so that my leaf outline wasn’t purple and my flower outline wasn’t green was hard! I think it worked though 😀


I’m not going to post individual colors, because it takes too long. If you’re curious about any of them just ask!


Hope you enjoyed! Tomorrow is even MORE stamps, but this time with sharp crisp awesome lines 🙂
