Digit-al Dozen Does BLUE - China Patterns

Hi Goddesses

Sorry for the mess I have made of our scheduled programming :(  I have been battling bad sinuses most of the week and then last night they completely floored me.  Won.  Destroyed me.  I've spent most of the day sleeping, or shuffling around like a sloth in slo-mo.  The pain is like nothing else on earth.

One of the amazing things about doing this is the amazing nail polish community, and I am seriously staggered by how many women also suffer sinus and migraine problems.  Mine are either caused by an infection or, like this time, a dramatic shift in the weather.  I've been waiting 3 days for the sky to completely empty of rain.  For those of you who've never experienced sinus pain, trust me when I say nothing else compares - it's solid, immovable, vicious and inescapable.  Misery indeed.

So this is the first of many catch up posts - this is what I had planned for my DD Day 4 post on Thursday.  Luckily it was already half-written.  This is really simple - white base, stamp with colour - but also really effective.

As I hope you can tell, this is desgined to look like china plates or porcelain.  I used the amazing OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls for my base, and then stamped using Konad neon blue.  In the bottle, the Konad is as dark as Baker Street, so I'm disappointed it came out as light as it did here, but hey ho.

I tortured myself trying to find the right stamping pattern for this.  I KNOW I saw someone do a mani like this maybe 4 or 6 weeks ago, but I can't find it ANYWHERE.   In the end, I ended up settling on this pattern from DRK-B.

I love the overall effect, and hopefully it does look like a china pattern!  Finally, if you really want to blow your mind, go and click HERE and check out the similar mani Chalkboard Nails did .... FREEHAND.  Yup, she's that good ggrrrrrrr.

Enjoy xx :)
