Pink Roses

Hey everyone!  So I inadvertently took a 3 day hiatus.  Sorry about that.  I haven't had enough time to paint and get new material for ya'll.  PLUS - I have been trying hard to work ahead on a challenge I'm gonna be participating in in February that Jilltastic Nail Design is hosting.  I'm really excited about it because it's my first one!  Lots of new things I've never tried before on look out for some really cool designs and some possible fails, lol.

Anyway - today I have a mani that's a few months old.  I mentioned in this blog post that back in October 2012 I wore pink for every manicure (until Halloween) that month for Breast Cancer Awareness.  This design is from one of those.  I had just gotten my Bundle Monster 2012 stamping plates and I was using them non-stop!

For this design I used a base of a bright clean white.  I wish I could tell you definitively which white it was, but I can't.  It was either Essie Blanc or OPI Alpine Snow.  Then I stamped with the rose stamp from BM323 with China Glaze Love's a Beach - which I love.  I will have to do a legit swatch of this sometime.

As you can see - the stamp on my ring finger didn't go on very well and I tried to stamp over it...dumb move.  I didn't get it exactly over the same spot so there is a blurred effect on that nail - I left it and lived with it.  I was a beginning stamper!  Sue me!

I really really love this rose stamp - I have loved it in every color combination I've ever seen people use and I can't wait to use it again!!

Oh!  Today is my wee one's 2nd birthday!  The time has gone by so very fast!  Happy Birthday Emmy Belle!
