Copy Cat Sat - A Polish Addict

Today, I want to share with you some pretty nails I saw last week, and had to re-create. This is what I wore to my first day at my new job (I didn't want to scare them!). This is from A Polish Addict, and it was so sweet and pretty, I just had to do it. As usual, I'm not using the same colors, but they are pretty similar. I wanted to try out some of the polishes that I have had sitting in my stash for a little while which I haven't used.

This is a base of Zoya Lo, which my mom gifted me recently, and I am in love with - thanks Mom! Look at how pretty it is! As usual, it went on in two flawless coats (I LOVE ZOYA!) and it looks gorgeous on its own. I used Zoya Kimber for the french tip. I've been dying to use this, but it is a mini, so I feel like I have to conserve it and use it all sparingly. Who am I kidding? If I ever run out, I'll find a way to get my hands on another bottle.
Last, I did a little stripe of OPI Excuse Moi (from the Muppets Collection!). I am slowly getting better at striping. These lines are almost perfect, which I am very happy about. And I did something I RARELY do. I put something on my nails other than nailpolish. I was going to go without the rhinestone, but it just didn't look right, so I had to. I had these in with my scrapbooking supplies, and never would have used them in a scrapbook, so they have offically been moved to my nailpolish collection.

I'm pretty happy with this manicure, although I can't stop picking at the rhinestones. Thank you so much for looking. Please let me know what you think. Also, if you see anything that you would like for me to try to recreate (with my own spin on it, of course) please leave me a comment. I will eventually run out of ideas, and I would love some input from my faithful readers!
