This week's challenge over at Adventures In Stamping is to create a manicure inspired by a book you're currently reading. So as I'm not a massive reader I nabbed the book my mother's currently reading. I'm the kind of girl who will slap on some SPF and lay out on the grass in the summer with shades on and a book to read, with a kittie by my side (usually Cheese) in the shade I'm creating. So while I'm currently hoping for snow, I've already started a list of which books I wanna read this summer :D
So this manicure is inspired by Valley Of Silence by Nora Roberts, I was in a rush to do these, and haven't even read the blurb so I have no idea whether I should recommend or not!
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: Rimmel - White
Glitter: Barry M - Pink Sapphire Glitter
Stamping Colour: Miss Sporty - Fatal Plum
Image Plates: Cheeky CH50, Bundle Monster BM05
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Advanved Hard As Nails
Here's what I used:
I added the glitter as it seemed like there were too many white gaps. Also, notice the fact I have the summer Cheeky plates, I'm so excited, I haven't tried them all yet, but there's so much I want to do, so expect to see a lot a lot of Cheeky stamping soon once I've checked they all work!
Hope you've all had a good weekend, mine has gone far too quickly, and I haven't had a chance to remotely play catch up with my reading list! Always tomorrow though ;]
