Monday Blues: Spring Paisley!

Hi again!

Here is post number 2 for today - I'm on a roll!

For my Monday Blues mani, I decided to try nail stamping for the very first time. I have lots of plates, but I was always nervous because I just couldn't find the right design and color combination.  But for some reason, this one just came to me! So, in the spirit of spring, here is my Monday Blues mani!

For my base color, I used a color from essie's new 2013 Resort Collection: in the cab-ana.  It is a GORGEOUS blue creme and I can't stress enough how beautiful this color is! It is a hands down must-have -- no question about it! Pictured here is two coats.

For my stamping, I used NYC long wearing French White Tip and bundle monster BM-315 stamping plate.

I topped everything off with a coat of NYC long wearing Extra Shiny Top Coat.
