Summer Challenge Day 2: The Chelsea Flower Show

Hi Goddesses

So here we are, Day 2 of the challenge, and it's ALSO a stamping mani, so it covers off today's Stamping Week post too :)

The Chelsea Flower Show is a big deal in certain circles in the UK.  It's where posh flower loving types come together to oooh and aaaah and sniff the bouquet of classic blooms and new blooms, and there's always some D list celebs on hand for the photo opps!

Basically today was a great excuse for a flower mani, and I decided to go in a different direction and do it all using stamps.   Rather than using 1 flower based print, I picked about 4 single bloom patterns - with varying success.

Somewhere in the mix you have BM02 (using CG Life Preserver), Konad M51 (using Nails Inc Malibu Cosmo, a surprising success), Cheeky CH7 (the metallic aqua one, one of the SH Chromes) and finally, the best one of all, Cheeky CH2 using Konad red - see, doesn't using a Konad make a MASSIVE difference ?

A little shout out for the base too, Barielle's Myrza's Meadow, the most beautiful soft creamy green laden with holo particles.  Really beautiful.

This one is a mixed success for me - definitely loving the red bloom the most.

Don't forget to check out what all the other talented ladies are up to - and enjoy xxx :)
