On to this week’s prompt, floral. I wanted to use this flower stamp I had and it made me think of Hawaii so I chose a sort of Hawaiin theme here, or at least I hope that’s how it’s portrayed.. lol

For this look I did a gradient using Jessica’s Banana Peel and Tangerine Dreamz. I stamped

the flower using Illamasqua Boosh.

The third picture looks a little blurry, I was messing around with my fisheye  camera add on to my phone.

Stamping Saturday – May Flowers

It’s that time again, another edition of Stamping Saturday. I absolutely love the Spring and the Fall. What I love most about Spring are all of my flowers, shrubs, etc blooming and sprouting again, and all of the pretty insects that come along with Spring. You can have your mosquitos though.. lol

Today in honor of Spring since we had such a wacky winter here in NJ, I have a flower mani. I’m going to be honest though, I don’t like it… :/ I don’t know if it’s the color scheme or what but I’m not a fan and these will be coming off very shortly.. lol

I used two coats of Jessica’s Strawberry Shake it for the base. The purple flowers are using stamp Red Angel RA-308 and OPI’s Planks A lot, the pink ones are using Venique’s Flip Flop to the Beach. The other nails with the vines I used the same stamping plate and the green is Orly’s Lucky Duck with the same two flower colors just alternating. The center yellow was Zoya’s Darcy.
