Mint to Be...

I broke a few nails and decided to trim them all off instead of messing around with fixing corners. Right now my nails are shorter than they've been in a looooooong looooong time. I have no desire to swatch or create nail art so I'm taking a bit of a break from that. In the mean time I will be showing you manicures that have been patiently waiting for their shot in the spotlight.

Starting off today is a stamped manicure that I created after swatching the 365 Days of Color Romantique collection. The delicate mint shade called for an equally delicate floral print pattern in a color to match the beautiful golden flecks it contains..

For this manicure I used a base of 365 Days of Color Mint to be Together, a beautiful minty green with a gold glass fleck shimmer. This is my favorite shade from the collection so I really wanted to enjoy it and take the opportunity to wear it for a few days...

I stamped the floral pattern from Cheeky plate CH44 using Sinful Colors Gold Medal. I should mention that I thickened Gold Medal up before using it by leaving it with the cap slightly open for a few days. I really like the warmer, more coppery gold of Gold Medal vs my usual stamping gold favorite Maybelline Bold Gold.

The golden stamping really complimented the golden flecks in the polish...

I would love to know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!
