Hey Lovelies! (:
I ordered some new nail plates the other week from Vivid Lacquer when there was a discount code and they arrived this morning, I got three for £17.43/$25.80. Plate VL 006 is the one I really wanted for the dandelion image which I used today, my stamping is a bit crappy though. I'm not feeling great so I rushed it. The images on the VL plates are really nice sizes and they stamp really well!

My base colour was Sinful Colors 'Pistache' that I managed to snag in a Boots order a couple of months ago, I love the colour! It was a little goopy though, but it dried pretty quickly. It's a gorgeous pastel green, a bit lighter in colour than actual pistachios. Even though it had a bit of a goopy consistency, it applied quite well, not streaky and needed two coats for opacity.   
I'm feeling quite sorry for myself today cause I feel sick and my little doggy is ill too :(, but along with my One Tree Hill rewatch that I just started (I forgot how much I used to love this show! and the design on the 1-8 box reminds me of my nails now :P), this design has cheered me up. Even if it does remind me of my hay fever. Pollen -.-

- One coat of Sally Hansen's 'Insta-Grip Fast Dry Base Coat' - £1.49 from BandM Bargains

- Two coats of Sinful Colors 'Pistache' - £1.99 from Boots
- Stamping with Barry M's 'Black' - £2.99 from Superdrug/ Boots
- One coat of Seche Vite 'Fast Dry Top Coat' - £5.49 from Amazon

I used Barry M's 'Black' for the stamping, but I don't like how it goes greyish when stamped. Gave me an excuse to order Konad's Special Stamping Black today ;) - hope that'll be better for stamping! I had to draw the dandelion stem on my pinky and it came out thicker and darker, so now it looks odd :( but I really do like the dandelion design :).

  3. Love it! I like that the dandelions aren't white, since a lot of people do them that way. The green on green a good dynamic. :)
