Girly and Gilded Mix & Match

A few weeks ago, my sister Kelsey stopped by to get her nails done. You may remember her (and her nails!) from the last time we did a nail photoshoot featuring leopard print and a faux fur lined jacket. We were talking about manicure ideas and decided to do a girly mix and match featuring pinks, golds, and black. I did some sketching while we hammered out the details, and once the manicure was done, we did a mini photo shoot!

Polishes used:
Seche Dives In Head First
Seche Pretty Little Heartbreaker
American Apparel Hassid
Zoya Kerry
Cirque Colors Au - related here

Embellishments used:
Bundle Monster plate BM-008 (crown)
From the Heart 1 plate (Be Mine and I Love You) - similar here
Black, gold, and silver rhinestones - similar here
Hex Nail Jewelry Etched Hearts

It's no secret that stamping isn't my strong suit, and let me tell you... it was even harder for me to do on someone else! Thankfully, Kelsey was patient with me.

The 3D embellishments turned out just right -- not too much, not too little. My favorite nail might be the black rhinestone "K" on the gold base, though I do love a good polka dot, too.

I enjoy doing these combination manicure/photoshoots, though they do take a lot to get from start to finish! Thank you to my dahling sister for doing the modeling!
