Monkey See Monkey Do Monday...on Tuesday

Great start, right? SO over at the Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge (originators of the Spring Challenge) there is a new challenge going on - on a Monday you recreate a challenge you've seen somewhere else, whether it be Pinterest, another blog, tumblr or whatever. I have seen the laser mani lots of times and as Debbie did one last Monday I decided to follow her lead and corrupt Whimsical with one. I just placed striping tape randomly over my nails, trying to make sure I would get some glitter poking through, and then painted over it with a coat of W7 Metallic Neptune (previously untried, as it is untried month!). I took the tape off straight away and this is what I was left with. I really liked it :)

Metallic Neptune is a blue/Green/Purple duochrome that was so hard to photograph, especially with the fantasticly wet weather we're having. Hooray for hosepipe bans. Anyway, you can just see the purple in the last picture at the edges of the nails. I'm pretty sure it would be a stainer, so using it this way is perfect ;)

Hopefully next week's MSMD will actually be on Monday...
