Nail-Art-A-Go-Go Day 2 = Jewel Tones!

Good evening! I thought I would have this post up earlier, but I kept having to pause my painting to cook up some yummy foods for the big game tonight. I don't care about football AT ALL, but I do care about my husband. Therefore, I made all sorts of yummy game snacks to surprise him and make this day extra special. And, since I get to eat it all too, it makes me happy. :) Anyway, for today's post, I got it in my head that I wanted to do something like stained glass.

It was a lot more time consuming than I first imagined, but I loved the way it turned out. It looks pretty much the way I envisioned it. :) I used the stamping decal method with an image on Cheeky XL Plate D. This is the part that took forever, but it was worth it.

For this mani, I ended up using 12 nail polishes! I'm going to list them out below rather than explain in detail what I did with each one. I just don't have that kind of time today!! I will say that I started out with a white base in the hopes that the colors would look brighter, so for  that, I used Pure Ice SuperStar!, which you all know by now is my favorite white. Here are the rest of the colors I used:
  • butter LONDON Knees Up
  • essie Sure Shot
  • Julep Angela
  • Julep Leah
  • Julep Marjorie
  • Konad Special Black
  • L.A. Colors Magnetic Force
  • L.A. Colors Wired
  • Pure Ice Femme Fatale
  • Pure Ice Vintage Glam
  • Sally Hansen Pronto Purple
Make sure you check out what all the others did for today's challenge!!!
