Summer Challenge - Fruit Salad

Hi Goddesses

I feel like it's forever since I posted some kick ass nail art, and I am really really happy with how today's mani turned out.

As with a lot of my stuff, this was a happy accident.  I knew all along that I would probably use this particular stamping plate, but not how or with what colours.

This started with 2 coats of Essie Bazooka, one of their AMAZING summer neons, with Poshe to gloss it up.

I then sponged randomly with Bettina Green and Barry M Yellow, to add lemons and limes to my orange salad :)

And then I stamped over it with Konad White and BM-308.

I really love that the overall effect of this mani is so much more than the sum of its parts.   The sponging shows through beautifully, and so subtly - and I love that it makes the fruit look like it's in various stages of ripeness :)

This is one of my favourite manis in a LONG time .... Crumpet needs to get her mojo back.  I think I've been so busy organising challenges and things I've forgotten how to have fun :(  So I'm off to play with my new polishes and get inspired xx

Enjoy xx :)
