Today I have a mani that I did a couple of weeks ago for my Sunday stamping group, Adventures In Stamping. The theme was to do some sort of French manicure, and of course it had to include stamping.
I started with a base of Pahlish Coney Island Queen; this is a soft white with hints of pinkish (barely) and lots of gold fleck. It's a neutral, but it has a ton of panache:

Since my nails are on the short side lately (and that was before they went all turbo-nubbins on me!), I wanted to do just a short little French tip. After I put the white tips in place, I stamped over them using China Glaze Passion and Bundle Monster plate BM316:
I chose the color and pattern I did to carry over the gold flecks into the tips, but in a more leafy, developed way. I love how it came out--intricate, but still subtle. You could wear this as a wedding manicure, and even probably wear to work. :)
Hey, here's a question--would you like a tutorial on how to created stamped French tips?
Hope you're having an amazing weekend! Hugs and kisses,
