Good morning, lovely readers.  Sorry to have been away.  I'm on spring break now (yay!) so I'm finally catching up with my life.  The Boyfriend and I spent yesterday making some lovely faux-cyanotypes following this tutorial, and now the apartment looks a little more like a place to live now.


I didn't actually manage to get this design on my nails for St. Patrick's Day... I just wore my bright green costume ring to avoid pinching.


I used China Glaze  Holly-Day for the base color, followed by stamping with Icing Chrome Bright Green and the leftmost image on Bundle Monster Image Plate BM212.  I've never used those sorts of designs, and it ended up being much easier to get even results than I thought.  I used the end with the three petal-y bits towards the tip of my nail.  I topped it of with NYC Grand Central Station.
Oh, and a closeup of the ring, too.  It doesn't quite match Holly-Day (which is just about the Official Starbucks Green color) but it sufficed for pinch protection.
