31DC2014 Day 03: Yellow - Corn

Mmmmm delicious hot buttered corn.  My yellow nails for day three of the challenge were actually really simple to create, but they looked very effective.

I used OPI I Can't Cope-a-cabana as my yellow base.  I then did some stamping decals using the Messy Mansion MM23 with the corn design on it.  For my brown stamping polish I mixed some Mundo de Unas Reddish and Green together (MdU mixes so well to make other colours!).  I then added light and dark yellow highlight and shadow dots to each corn kernel before sticking the stamp down onto my nails.  I used the same technique as I showed in this post.
