Lattice and Roses
If this is your "Back to School" week, I hope it's going well. As for me, things have been a little hectic and I'm still wearing a peeling and cracking mani from (gasp!) last week! I wanted to take a moment to share this design with you because - amazingly - I did NOT use Essie Fiji as a base (what?).
I LOVE Essie Fiji. It's a sweet, pale pink that I use all the time. I've never been fond of the application of Essie Fiji, but the light color and opacity has made it a favorite. When I saw Sinful Easy Going, I thought I might be able to add a little variety to my pale pinks.
For this design, I used Easy Going and stampepd it with Orly Mind's Eye using Pueen 22. I was going for a softer, vintage rose look when I added Pure Ice Love and Wet N Wild Lavender Creme. They came out a little more "impressionist" than "vintage", but I liked the overall effect.
Well, Konaddicts - what do you think about this one? Are there other pale pinks that you'd recommend?
