Today is the third installment of my twinpost series with Dina of Secretary's Nail Art; this week, we're both doing manicures using the leaf image from Cheeky plate 33.
For my manicure, I started with Ulta Ginger Peach, a really pretty neutral shade that I'm falling in love with (I'm very picky about neutrals because they tend to bore me, but this has just the right amount of pretty peachy flash in it):

For the next step, I painted over the accent nail with Cult Nails Iconic, and freehanded French tips on the other nails. Iconic is one of my favorite polishes; it's a beautiful wine-red with gold-bronze flakies that are unfortunately really hard to photograph!:
|Grrr...you can see the flakies better in the bottle than on the nails...sheesh|
|You can see the color of Iconic best in this shot|
This would be a great way to jazz up a neutral manicure after work for a night out! I like how the stamping works with the French tip to make it all look more fluid.
Don't forget to check out what Dina did with this image--she used a really cool technique for her, and you can see it here.
Finally, I'm also starting a new thing where I link my favorite artwork for the week up with some friends of mine; they link their favorite manicures, too. Check them out below!
Thanks for looking.
