Oh how this manicure failed. The average person probably wouldn't really think so but I just really hated this color combination and that's why I consider it a fail.
Yellow is one of my favorite nail polish colors, as it is just so bright and happy on my nails! I used Essence in Wanna Be Your Sunshine for my base color. It's a beautiful bright shimmery yellow. (To see the shimmer, enlarge the photo above.) It's rather opaque for a yellow, and only needed two coats.
I selected the design for this stamp specifically because it seemed like it fit the "delicate print" category pretty well. The image is from Bundle Monster Image Plate BM201.
I was feeling a sort of sunflower color combination but I was torn on whether to use Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Bronze Ablaze or Coco-A-Gogo. I hadn't yet used Bronze Ablaze so I decided to go with it. Mistake!
Once these two colors were combined, Bronze Ablaze really made the base color look much more mustardy and less like a bright happy yellow. I personally have no like of mustard or mustard colored things so that's where this went wrong for me. At least the painting and stamping technique was good but I really hated this and took it off in less than twenty-four hours.
