Digit-al Dozen: Throwback to Flutterby

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is now Day 4 of the Digit-al Dozen Throwback week.  I'm revisiting times I have dressed up - I'm getting in the Halloween spirit!  I first showed you my Sally mani, then buzzed over to my Bumble costume and yesterday I shared my Clown work uniform.  Today is not necessarily a costume nor a uniform, but just as fun!

Now let's get to the details!

When looking through old photos of dressing up, this one made me stop because the colors.  I realized it would be a great inspiration photo, so I had to pick it.  I know it's not a costume, but it makes me happy because I look so dang happy.  I was on vacation with  my mom and nephew visiting mere in Arizona and we were at the Desert Botanical Gardens about 8 years ago.  They had a butterfly exhibit and this mural was there.

Products used:
Polish 'M - Lemonade (press sample)
Bad Bitch Polish - Butternut
Bluebird Lacquer - Advanced Algebrah (press sample)
Glisten and Glow - Top Coat
Ever After Polish - Black Magic
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)
Born Pretty Store - BP-34 Plate (press sample)
Ribbits Stickits - Cuticle Cover

I started with 1 coat of Lemonade as my base to build the gradient off of.  I used a cosmetics sponge and created a gradient with Lemonade, Butternut and Advanced Algebrah.  I added a top coat and let that dry.  Then after protecting my skin and cuticles with Cuticle Cover, I stamped with Black Magic, the Big Bling Stamper and BP-34 Plate.  Everything is topped again with top coat.

I loved how this turned out!  I hope you enjoyed it too!  Be sure to check out the other Throwback manis below!

Happy Polishing,
