Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all of the Mom's had a wonderful day! The weather was perfect here and I had a chance to enjoy the sunshine with my girls.  

Today's nails where inspired by a design I saw in Konad's style book using image plate M35.  I wasn't sure how to style my nails today but I wanted to participate in the Nail Challenge this week.  The theme was image plates ending in the number 5. I was uninspired so I turned to Konad's playbook for a few style ideas. I came across this flower mani which I love.  

The base is China Glaze Refresh-Mint stamped with a green Franken and Konad pink. I can't remember if it's the pearlized pink or not. I have two Konad pinks and the lighter version doesn't stamp well at all.  This version is pretty good over lighter colors. 

My camera couldn't capture the mint in Refresh-Mint but there's a lot of green going on in this mani balanced by the splashes of pink flowers.  It's a cute and easy combo for the Spring.


Until next time. Happy Polishing!
