Before & After: F is for 'Flourish'


Today's letter in my Llama Nails alphabet challenge is F, and I've decided that stands for 'Flourish'. I love love love images that have flourishy flounces, so I love any opportunity to use them.

I had been wearing Orly Oui, which is one of my new favorite polishes. It's a deep lavender-ish polish with gorgeous gold and silver flecks to it:

To create my manicure, I stamped using Revlon Orbit a dark purple creme (half of one of the double-ended Revlon flakie polishes) to get a tone-on-tone effect, and Bundle Monster plate BM314:

Flourishy flourishes :)

The thing I love best about this is how the gold-flecked polish shines out from underneath the stamping; I also love that the stamping reminds me of some wrought-iron gate. :)

Thanks for looking, and please check out all the other 'F' manicures, linked below!
