My name is Natalie Elise and I was asked by Caitlin to do a guest post while she is away on vacation (lucky duck). I have my own blog over at WalkInMyEyeShadow so if you like my post, please follow me to my domain. I love getting new followers and receiving feedback on my work. Anyway, onto the post.
This is a manicure that I created this past week. I normally do my nails really late at night because I am more of a night person and nail art is what I do when I want to start winding down of an evening. This particular manicure was created at 3am (as I said, I'm a night person lol)
As a base for my manicure I used OPI "A Grape Fit" which was released in 2009. This colour is a nice and vibrant lavender creme polish which is very similar to China Glaze "Spontaneous"
I then decided to stamp over this polish with one of the new Bundle Monster images because I haven't used them yet. I chose this pretty floral design from image plate BM306 and stamped it using Konad White Special Polish
I then applied my usual combination of Kami Nail Art Sealer and Seche Vite. I have found that this combination of top coats helps protect my nail art from chipping.
The Kami Nail Art Sealer acts as a great substitute for Konad Special Top Coat, although it is never as glossy as I really want it to be. By adding the extra top coat of Seche Vite, my manicure becomes extra protected and has the glossy appearance I desire
