Buttlerfly Trap....On Sundays I Stamp!

Hallo polished prisoners,

Today is Sunday and you know what that means.  Yes, another Adventures in Stamping post!  This weeks challenge was to use either bronze, silver, or gold as either the base for our stamping or the stamping color itself.  I know it's a touch Olympian in nature yes? But, for one I'm not really following the Olympics (eh-hem I haven't owned a functioning tv in over 5 years), and second I was feeling the need to try out a new plate that arrived this week from Nailz Craze.  So here's what I came up with...

Mani-louge
Base Color: Paints by Allya Automatic
Gradient: Paints by Allya Automatic and Pity and Essie Jamacian Me Crazy

Stamping polish: China Glaze Passion

This gradient kills me...by itself it would be one fine manicure, but I can never leave well enough alone lol.

I love the touch of shimmer created by Jamaican Me Crazy. This is one of my favorite Essie polishes.

It just feels vibrant right?

As you can see I love butterflies, but not in a Mariah Carey crazy way more in a they make for great nail art kind of way.  Do you have a type of manicure you keep coming back to? For me it's always some kind of butterfly like creation.  However, I have never done butterflies before using gold for their wings.  I have to say I'm a bit in love!

Shimmy and shake!
 In case you are wondering about the polishes I recently did a little haul from Paints by Allya from her recent Full Ruscha collection.  They are all gorgeous cremes with not a glitterbomb amongst them.  To be frank while I love glitter I always appreciate a good classic polish in my life.  I'll do a review of this collection later, but for now it's safe to say I'm really happy with my purchase.

I love it!
So here we are another AIS Challenge met and stamped!  What do you think of the final results?  I'm very shocked by the simple beauty of this one myself.  I could have kept going after I stamped but I thought I wanted the polish to have the spotlight.  Thanks for reading and I'll see you next post! Toodles...

    1. Hey love thanks! Yeah they are pretty unique I now own two plates that have them this one by Nailz Craze and another by Vivid Lacquer. If you go back in my blog posts you can see where I did another butterfly wing mani using the VL plate.
