Summer Challenge Day 9 - Favorite Summer Memory

Day 9 (July 17th) of the Summer Challenge is Favorite Summer Memory. My favorite summer memory would have to be my wedding day. It was such a special day, I will never forget it as long as I live. Everything was perfect. So, I went with a very basic black and white mani. Here it is.

I painted my nails white using Pure Ice Super Star!, then mattified it using NYC Matte Effect. After that, I stamped on NYC Mulberry Street for a subtle pearl swirl background, and then stamped these floral designs in Pure Ice Black Rage using Konad plate m63, mash-36 & mash-39.

Here is a wedding photo from the happy day. :)
