Hello!

Oh yes oh yes, it's time for Throwback Thursday again, where I show you a manicure that I did back in the day, but never showed you for some reason!

For this manicure, I started with a gradient of Jessica Touch It and Dance Legend Amethyst:

Then I stamped with Pueen Love Elements plate 26 (you can see my review of this set here), with Konad black. Then I added some teardrop rhinestones for a chandelier effect:

I think this mani originally got overlooked because my cuticles were struggling a bit more than I thought was okay...also, I felt that the black stamping was a bit too harsh. Looking at it now, though, I really like it. What do you think?

Happy stamping,
M.

  3. What a shame you hid it from us for so long. It is gorgeous, and I didn't even notice your cuticles until I saw your comment about them. Beautiful job, and very imaginative and inspiring.
