ASBMF #9 Fresh Cut Lawns

Today I did an attempt on one of my April Shower's Bring May Flowers Challenges, Fresh Cut Lawns.  This looked good in my head.  Not so good after I was done.  In my defense, my kids woke up with so much energy this morning, they just couldn't be contained.  I also used a polish I had never used before.  The Nabi Magnetics.  My thought was that I would be trying out some thing new and getting in a challenge mani.  The formula on the Nabi is really good.  You just have to make sure that you get a nice even coat.  Not too thick, not too thin.  Also, it's best to get your nail as close to the magnet as possible.  It makes great lines the closer you get.  I held my magnet to each nail for 30 seconds.  I wish I had taken a pic of my thumb.  The lines are so cool and defined!  I wanted to add a pretty butterfly, cause that is what I think of when I think of bright green lush lawns.  Remember when I said my kids were a little crazy this morning?  It messed up my stamping mojo.  I didn't get my butterfly center and at that moment I didn't care and surely didn't want to re-do it.  So I decided to wing it and try to add a partial butterfly to fill in the empty space.  Here what I ended up with.  Be honest, what do you think?

Base Coat:  Seche REBUILD
Base Color:  Nabi Magnetics in Teal
Stamping Plate;  Red Angel RA 119
Stamping Polish:  Kleancolor Metallic Yellow
Top Coat:  Seche Vite

  2. I LOVE this idea! So creative and well executed - great job :)

  3. When I started reading that you did it and it didn't turn out I though, "oh so she re-did her nails, they look awesome!" But then I realized you were talking about them! They look really awesome! I really have been wanting to try some of that polish, it looks so cool!!
