Leopard Print Over A Pink & Purple Gradient

As I mentioned Thursday today's post will be covering some nails I did for my friend Vicki. I really wanted to do a gradient with stamping, so I started with a base of Models Own - Pastel Pink, and Sponged on both Pastel Pink, and Sinful Colors - Daddy's Girl. I then stamped with good old Konad M57 in BYS - Black Satin.

Daddy's Girl is a polish I lusted after a couple of years ago, but totally forgot about it, until I spotted it in the pound shop. I still don't have any swatches even though I've wore it a few times.

On to Vic's Nails:
Base coat: La Femme
Base Colours: Models Own - Pastel Pink
Sinful Colors - Daddy's Girl
Stamping Colour: BYS - Black Satin
Image Plate: Konad M57
Top Coat: Rimmel - 60 Seconds Clear

I really love the colour combo, and i'm planning on wearing it at some point with a different stamp, or some free hand stuff maybe.

Anyways I'm gonna take this time to tell you about Vicki's new Facebook store she's just opened, Blingin Covers.

Blingin Covers specialise in hand made bling iPhone covers using Swarovski element crystals. At the minute she only sells iPhone covers but is looking to expand if demand is high enough. She also sells some seriously cute headphone jack plugs, I think my favourite being the Giraffe which I'll show you later. I think these plugs (or dust stoppers) are such a great idea. My last phone I had used a regular sized jack, and it broke because of dust and fluff getting stuck in the jack.

So here's the Giraffe dust stopper dangle I was talking about:

 So yeah check her out if you're in the market for some iPhone goodies, or some dust stopper dangles :] She accepts Paypal or cheque, and is so much cheaper than American competitors.

Happy Saturday :]
