piCture pOlish Tiffany Boxed Up

The last piCture pOlish in my collection is Tiffany. It carries the very appropriate and cute tag line of "diamonds with breakfast!" With a name like that, there wasn't a doubt in my mind that I wanted to put a ribbon and bow on this manicure.


For the ribbon I used striping tape in white and silver. The white alone turned almost clear on the nail so I layered it over silver striping tape. The bow provided a bit more of a challenge since I didn't want to paint it and stamping just wasn't going my way. I ended up cutting out part of a butterfly sticker and using it as a bow. Have no fear though, no real butterflies were harmed in the making of this manicure.

I'm really happy with how this turned out. Too bad I don't own a real Tiffany box to take photos with... ;)



A quick shot of the stickers that I used. The red lines over one of the butterflies shows where I cut to turn it into a bow. Also in the process of taking photos I discovered that these stickers glow in the dark! Yay! :)


piCture pOlish Tiffany itself is a cool mint creme. It actually has a bit more of a green tint than the camera captured. Thee coats for full opacity and the formula was easy to work with. Swatches here are with a top coat...

    @Melissa, I have no idea where they come from :) Often I draw inspiration from the name or if the color reminds me of something :)
