Friday Triad: Inspired by @clairestelle8

And just like that another month and year comes to an end. The 52weeknailchallenge is at an end and I'm getting ready for next year's and this is the last Triad post for the year. And lucky me got to choose it. I was considering choosing something Christmassy, but as we would post after I decided to choose something else.

So I ended up choosing this mani done by @clairestelle8. I've been wanting to try it for ages because I just loved the whole stained glass look. And I did get a stained glass stamping plate from Moyra, which I wanted to give a go. Let me show you what I did.

I started with two coats of Ulta3 black satin on my thumb and index finger, on my middle and ring finger I have a coat of Sorbet calm before the storm (it's a white) and two coats of Hean sugar 852 on my pinky.
I then started working on my stamping decals.... I first used Nicole Diary black to pick up the stamping image and to colour it in. For the butterflies I used China Glaze red-y to rave, treble maker and glow with the flow. Once that was dry I placed it onto the white base to keep the neon, neon.
I then used a nail art brush and black satin to change the white to black. Once that was dry I stamped the same image with Essence I still believe in Santa Claus over the butterflies, trying to line it up. Top coated and done.
I really liked how this turned out. And I got a few compliments on it too. Don't forget to head on over to Joyce and Michelle to see what they did. I'm certain they hit this one out the park.

Thanks for reading!!
