Adventures in Stamping - Leafy...


So this week's Adventures in Stamping theme was simply "leafy", something which can be broadly interpreted I guess. I didn't want to use green, or autumnal colours so I went for black and silver. But not just any black and silver. The base is 3 coats of Pretty & Polished Black Swan, a pretty pretty black holo. It's not quite linear, but so gorgeous. Hard to photograph though, the little scamp. I stamped with Barry M Silver Foil and Bundle Monster 310. Please excuse the shrinkage, my nails are too short to wrap the tips at the moment and Poshe is not kind when you have 2 layers of it on top of and underneath the stamping...

Black Swan alone

Bottle shot! Trying so hard to be linear...

My challenge manis have been a bit sucky recently. I feel like they're not coming out as well as I imagine them, or they just plain suck. This is better, slightly. More practice needed I think...

Have you got any Pretty & Polished bottles in your collection? I heart this! It is quite sheer so although it's a big bottle I think I'll layer it over a black creme next time I wear it. So pretty :)
