14 Day of Love - Day 2

Good morning! Today is another day in paradise, and I have today's love themed nail art. I used my stamping plates again today. This time i went with flowers with a few hearts on my pinkie nail. The base color is Cover Girl's Boundless Color "Crushed Shells". I really like this polish, it's a delicate pink and the shimmer is almost like a glitter, but not quite. I know I usually post photos in bright sunlight, but today and yesterday's had to be done indoors for today's I will show both with the flash and without the flash.

The above photo is without flash. Here the pink polish has almost a nude to white color to it but you can see how the shimmer is almost glitter like.

In this photo the polish looks the delicate pink that it actually is but the shimmer is less glittery and the design is definately much clearer.

I'm still fairly new to stamping and quite a few of the upcoming designs will include stamping. The stamping will not always be the only aspect of the design like today and I will be making some effort to mix it up between free-hand and stamping. I have a definite design idea I want to try out tonight for tomorrow's post, so we'll see how that works out tomorrow morning!!


  1. Pretty polish and pretty design ;0).

  2. Thank you!! I think I'll do a second one with this color and see if I can get the true color to really show through in sunlight. Never in a million years expected a drugstore polish to hold it's own against salon brands.
