Before & After: Tangerine Flowers


This month's theme in my Nail Challenge Collaborative group is 'Flowers'. Since July is here and summer is upon us, I wanted to share something fun and summery for the first week.

I started off with a base of Julie G Tangerine Dreams, a pretty yellow-orange textured polish:

Next I stamped with Sally Hansen Orange Impulse and on top of that with Rapid Red on three of the nails, and with Sally Hansen Lightning n the accent nail, to create a yellow-orange-red color grouping.  I stamped with Red Angel plate RA121:
