Monday's Manicure

Currently watching: Entre Les Murs

Bonjour les filles :-)

How are you? Did you have a nice weekend? Have you recovered from the shock of last week's disappearing posts and comments?

I am in Paris on business for the next two weeks but I'm still planning on posting and visiting your blogs as best I can. I tried to take a lot of photos before I left so I have at least a few posts planned ;-)

First up is Monday's Manicure:

My base was E.L.F Pearl and then I used various colours and butterfly stamping images from my Konad, Bundle Monster and MASH plates.

The idea was to use pastels but they didn't all show up well so in the end I ended up trying to cover up my pale pastel attempts with bolder shades.

I really liked the results :-)

What do you think of this manicure?
