The Lacquer Legion April Challenge: Glam

Hello readers,
Today I have another creation inspired by The Lacquer Legion's monthly challenge.  This month's theme was 'glam' and I will admit that I had a way easier time this month coming up with an idea than I did last month.  When I think of glam I think of long evening gowns and rich, fancy fabrics.  This led me to create the look of a floral brocade on my nails.

I used 3 coats Layla Ceramic Effect 52 stamped with Chine Glaze Gossip Over Gimlets using Pueen plate 55.  I added one coat CND super shiney to seal everything up.  Photos show this combo in natural lighting.

I am super happy with how this design turned out.  In certain lighting the flakies from the polish shine through and in others the stamping on top is what is most predominant.  Overall it definitely looks rich and glamorous.  I'm keeping this mani on until it chips.

Happy polishing,

- Michelle
