31 Day Challenge - Day 5 BLUE

Hi Goddesses

This is a mani from the long lost Summer of 2012.  Behold the splendour of the natural sunny light, beaming on the delicious manicure ..... I think it rained 20 minutes later :/

This was originally going to be a Recycled Nails post, but seeing how I got roped into this challenge, it's now become Day 5 aka Bluuuuuuuue.

The base for this mani is the Barry M Magnetic in blue.  I did each nail with a different magnet pattern - my favourite by far is the one on my index and ringer finger; it's like a spaced out star :)

The quality of the Barry M magnetics is high, and the pigmentation is divine.  The purple, in particular, has become one of my actual favourite purples - there is something divine about how they introduced metal to the colour.

Stage 2 was this stamp from Mash-45.  I have no idea what it is, but it's vaguely aquatic to me and reminds me of underwater reeds.

This would have looked cool left at this stage.

But look how much cooler it looks with little dots of Zoya Wednesday!   I loves !!!  I was really pleased with how this turned out.  A lot of the stampers I admire often embellish with dots, and I'd never done it before, but I think it works really well with this pattern.

The Wednesday also provides a lovely contrast to the metallic depth of the blue - it all just plays off each other so well.  This is definitely one that adds up to more than the sum of its parts.

Enjoy xx :)
