Pink and Grey

Hi everyone!

Here's a cute mani that I did over the weekend, I love this one so much!   My stamping is improving, but there are still a few flaws that bother me.  It looks good if you don't stare at it from too close ;)


The pink polish is Color Club I Believe in Amour, stamped with Essie's Power Clutch using one of the new Bundle Monster plates.  I initially wanted to stamp with a silver polish but I think this turned out much nicer :)


For the accent I used Gosh Silver, a beautiful silver foil polish.  I dabbed on some China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara on the tip, then one coat of Revlon's Stunning, which just gives it a little extra sparkle.

NOW.  For some exciting news.  My boyfriend proposed to me over the weekend, it was the sweetest thing ever.  He's so not the romantic type but he did really well ;)  And so that's why I'm sporting a dainty, girly kind of manicure, to complement the beautiful ring I'm now sporting on my finger!

I absolutely adore it!
 

And an awkward photo showing the little sapphire that's embedded, and the classic Birk's Blue Box (which, Jayne from Cosmetic Proof used as inspiration for a mani, found here ;)

Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks for looking :)

  1. Oh my gosh, congratulations!!! How exciting!! That is a beautiful ring. Did you help choose it, or was that all him? Very pretty mani, too, it really does complement that gorgeous ring. And I think your stamping flaws are visible only to you. :)
