#52weeknailchallenge: inspired by a country

I was seriously wondering what the hell I was going to do for this prompt... I mean inspired by a country? Seriously... Then I remembered I have stamping plates that are inspired by countries. And I ended up choosing France, because Eiffel Tower.

I started with two coats of I love Hean 870 from the pastel collection on my index, middle and ring finger. Top coated that for vinyls. On my thumb and pinky is two coats of Hean Ordinary Misfit. Once 870 was dry I added striping tape vertically across my nails and painted ordinary misfit over that, removing the striping tape immediately.
On my index and ring finger I stamped the fleur de lis design with Nubar silver mist and plate BP 36. Once that was dry, stamped the Ooh la la and Paris with my essence stampy polish in black. On my middle finger I stamped the Eiffel Tower, which unfortunately came out more looking like the leaning tower of Pisa.
So that's my inspired by a country mani... What do you think?
For some reason neither my clear stampers (one from BPS and other from bliss kiss) will pick up images using essence stampy polish. So I'm a little worried about our triad post for March... The image I chose will require being precise with placing it, so I might have to end up using a normal polish to stamp with, which won't be opaque enough... Ugh And I know Joyce will suggest double stamping it using the clear stamper, but I've tried that already and I suck at it!!

Thanks for reading guys!


  1. Ooh la la... perfect inspiration! And that Eiffel tower isn't leaning, it's all a matter of perspective :D

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous! I just love the colour combo you went for, it is stunning!
