NOTD: In anticipation of fishing

Good morning!  If all goes well, we should be en route already… and, of course, to commemorate our annual trip to Wisconsin, I busted out the fish skeleton stamp again, just like last year.  

Amazingly, the pattern turned out better on my right hand than it did on my left.  I only did accent fish this year instead of piles of fishy skeletons, but I think it looks pretty spiffy anyway.  Hopefully my fishing luck is better this year than it was last year!  Especially since I’m taking Boyfriend fishing for the First Time Ever.

I started off with Sinful Colors Basecoat followed by two medium coats of Pure Ice Touch Me Here (seriously, who names these things?).  Once that was dry, I stamped on the fishnet design from BM209 with Sinful Colors Black on Black.  On top, I added a few of the fish skeletons from BM04 with Essence Stampy White.  I was really happy with how Stampy White turned out, the black fishnet pattern didn’t show through at all!  When everything was dry, I topped it off with NYC Grand Central Station and attempted to do a little cleanup… It didn’t work very well, since I didn’t take my bottle of acetone along (it leaks) and instead finally caved and bought a big flipper bottle of Remove+ from Zoya at the local grocery store (it does not leak).  Although Remove+ works really well for straight polish removal, it isn’t as good for cleanup.

Hope you’re having a good weekend!  Are any of you going on vacations this summer?
