Sunday Stamping: Metallic Madness

Sometime you look for inspiration and sometimes it just finds you. Such is the case with this metallic zebra manicure by Chickettes that I stumbled upon on Pinterest. Usually I would repin it for "some day" and move on, but I just happened to be wearing Barielle Jordana's Skinny Jeans at the time and couldn't resist

So what does that have to do with Sunday Stamping? Good question. Every week members of the group, Adventures in Stamping, vote on that week's challenge. I rarely vote, instead I just look at chosen challenge towards the end of the week. It is more exciting for me to get a random theme (voted or pulled out of a hat) by someone else. So as this manicure was done and photographed, I thought I'd check on the poll for this week's stamping challenge. To my surprise the top two contenders were "metallic madness" and "over a saran wrap method base." This mani is so close to meeting both challenges. I guess it is lucky for me that metallic won the vote in the end so I could show you this today...

The base color is Jordana's Skinny Jeans as I mentioned earlier. A beautiful metallic blue. I stamped the index and ring fingers using the zebra print from Bundle Monster plate BM-223. The rest of the nails were done using the saran wrap "sponging" technique. It was my first time trying the technique and it was so easy and fun. The silver used for stamping and "sponging" is Pure Ice Silver Mercedes, which is my absolute favorite silver for stamping.

I added lips to the ring finger as an accent using Bundle Monster plate BM02 and Pure Ice Outrageous. Outrageous is a metallic pale pink which also works beautifully for stamping. I thought the lips on the thumb in my inspiration manicure were adorable and I had to include them...

Make sure to check out the inspiration manicure here and let me know what you think of this!

Thanks for looking!
