Refreshing Lime

Hi, everyone!
I certainly hope it's cooler where you are than it is here!  I figured the heat was a good reason to finally post this lime manicure that I wore a few weeks ago.  I wasn't happy with how my pictures came out but I wanted  to share the design anyway.

This is a base of Sally Hansen Lickety Split Lime and a very thin coat of holo glitter.  I used KD20 and Revlon Top Speed Emerald to stamp the limes.  On my ring finger, I used the fruity Cheeky 20 to stamp those larger limes.

Here's another look:

The image on KD 20 is kind of a fun one because your stamping color because the primary nail color and your base coat peeks through as the design.  It took a little practice to use because if you don't scrape the plate carefully, though, you can get streaks.  If you don't stamp carefully, your image can cut off or just not go on properly.  The final effect is kind of fun, though, and I'd like to play around a little more with this one.

Well, I hope you are doing well and staying cool!  Take care, Konaddicts!

So beautiful!! I am always nervous to use stamps that only show a bit of the base color because I mess them up. Oh well. I was wondering if you would like to do a nautical twin post with me??

When do you want to do it?? I will need at least a week to get my stamps and colors together.
