31DC2014 Honor Nails You Love

Yay we did!  We made it to the end of the challenge.

Today is Honor Nails You Love day.  This prompt is so easy, yet so hard.  I have so many manicures that I have snapshot-ed on my ipad because of their total awesomeness, so finding inspiration was easy.  Settling on just one to recreate is so hard!

In the end I went with a mani that I loved because a) it was gold and just felt like a 'me' mani and b) it was something that I had tried before and failed!  This is a white and gold mani featuring stamping with foils!

The nails I'm loving are by Eleonora over at Nail Art Stamping Mania.  I used the same stamping image from QA65 from the Born Pretty Store. I didn't have the other image she used on the middle two nails, so I just used a different stamp, but still placed Swarovski crystals in the centre.

I followed her video tutorial on how to stamp with the foils, and whilst it was a little tricky I was able to get a result I was very happy with.  The only down side is that the stamping image is a little small for my thumb, so I didn't get full coverage with the foil stamping.
