Minty Sweater Nails

December 26, 2012

I really wanted to use my sweater print from Nailz Craze NC03 stamping plate with this pale minty color, so I combined a couple of my favorite polishes to create this design.
I used Essie Mint Candy Apple as a base, and applied over it one coat of the gorgeous Models Own Indian Ocean. The effect I got was gorgeous! Indian Ocean is also one of my latest additions to the collection and I really love it. It has a pretty duo chrome shimmer that shifts its color from pink to yellow, and the base is really pretty even though it's sheer. I think it will be a lovely addition to any blue or teal base, and I intend to try all sorts of combinations with it.
The bottom photo shows really well the shimmery effect of Indian Ocean over Mint Candy Apple. Isn't it gorgeous?

I decided to stamp over this base the sweater design from my new Nailz Craze NC03 plate, but this time I stamped it vertically and used the same row from the design on each nail. I used Essence Stamp Me! White for stamping, and applied one coat of Poshe.
I think the result is very pretty and subtle and I really like it. It was a bit hard to get it on camera but I think you can get the hang of it. This is defiantly one of the favorite designs I've made lately and I'm quite pleased with it.
