Monday Blues Before & After: Steel Rose

Hello!

Today I'm excited to join a bunch of lovely nail bloggers who post blue manicure on Mondays, to lament the Monday Blues, lol. :)

For my first blue, I've chosen The Lady Varnishes Steel Blue, one of few polishes she recently sent me for review (you'll see the rest soon!). Steel Blue is a midnight blue jelly with tons and tons of blue flakes and glitters in it:

Next, I stamped on it using Bunny Nails BuNa-A, with Sally Hansen Brisk Blue and Barry M Silver Foil...I will be reviewing this and another Bunny Nails plate for you later today:


I call this manicure 'Steel Rose'...

...I think that might have been my stripper name in a past life...

So there you have it, my very first contribution to the Monday Blues. I hope you've enjoyed it!! Let me know if you'd like a tutorial on how I got the uneven stamped look. :)

Hugs and loves,
M.

    1. Thank you so much. I was really happy with how it came out. I think I like the idea of flowers with really non-traditional colors or shades. :)
