Sunday Challenge: Stars

Stars were the theme for my Facebook stamping group this week so I decided to try my hand out at freehanding a french tip.  I used Kelancolor Metallic Aqua for my tips.. it is so awesome! I originally had a different star image I was going to use but decided it didn't look well and with such a bold color as the tip, I wanted a big bold image, so I grabbed my Bundle Monster 05 plate and Kleancolor Metallic Fuchsia for the star. I wanted a bit of overlap into the tip so it blended well but the Fuchsia didn't really show over the blue, it just sort of melted into it. I still like it though because you can see the stars and it looks like some are supposed to be that way =^.^=  This was a fun challenge, I love stars! And it was my first attempt and freehanding a french tip, which I think I did pretty well. I wasn't sold on the naked nail but I have to say, it looks clean and fun so I may revisit it again.

Here's my giveaway with 4 winners and is open internationally if you haven't peeked yet, please do :)

  5. Love it! I often use a metallic blue with a fuchsia micro glitter over it...a color combo that I love. I have some glitter Kleancolors but have not gotten into the metallics - I think I will have to look at the list of shades now in metallics at the place I order them from. This is every bit as pretty as one of my fav blue metallics of last year, Orly Stone Cold.

    I LOVE the clean nail - do visit it again and give us a peek!
