Leafy - We Stamp On Sunday

Hi all! Happy Sunday! I'm having such a lazy weekend, I really need to edit some photos so I've got something ready for this weeks posts but I just can't concentrate :P

This week's challenge over at Adventures In Stamping was for a Leafy manicure. This is kind of what I was planning from the beginning, but I wish I had used a different leaf image, and maybe chosen different stamping polishes too.

Edit: I used this method for the multi coloured stamping. To see other times I've used this method click here.
Base Coat: La Femme
Base Colour: Essie - Ballet Slippers
Stamping Colours: Manhattan - Lemonade
Manhattan - Green Piece
Essence - Kiss On Top Of The Rock
Image Plate: Bundle Monster BM 05
Top Coat: Rimmel 60 Seconds - Clear

Here's some swatches of the base colour, and what I used:
 

Hope you all liked them :] I think my favourite nail is my ring finger.
