Golden Filigree

Originally I wanted to do an argyle design using Charmed, I'm Sure by China Glaze and Kiss Me Here by Pure Ice, but as I was doing it it just wasn't looking nice and I scrapped the idea. Instead, I just painted all my nails Tongue & Chic by China Glaze and then called it a day. Two days later they started to chip (thank you, cashiering job) and I didn't want to remove the color but I also didn't want to repaint them....so I did what any other lacquerista would do...I BROUGHT OUT THE STAMPING KIT. First time I've used it in a lonnnng time, but that's mainly because I don't have the patience to wait an hour or two for the base color to COMPLETELY dry before stamping and then it's just a mess. But this time I did since they were already solid and dry which just made the whole process super easy. Anywho, I used Sally Hansen's Golden-I for the stamping color and it was a tad too light once it was stamped on, so afterwards I just used a small pointed dotting tool and stippled over the design to make it more opaque.

I used Winstonia's W203 plate for the filigree and the leaf is from a gift set stamping kit that I can't think of the name of....it came with like a "stamping contraption" where it was more like a mini machine to stamp with, but I just do it by hand instead.


And this is my left (cinderella) hand. The leaft came out a lot crisper on this one.
