Flowers for My Valentine

I know I said last Sunday’s smooshy nails would double as flowers for today’s challenge prompt, but I just can’t let things be! I wanted to do flowers, so flowers it is.

Base is Illyrian Polish In This Twilight, and on top of that I double stamped with Moyou London’s White Knight and Candy Floss and then I mattified it with Lumene Matt Top Coat (which is rapidly running out – must buy more). The image is from BM-XL216.

It turned out to have a bit of eye watering effect!img_20170207_120400

And here’s a look at In This Twilight before stamping – on its own it’s extremely sheer, and three coats won’t make it even near opaque, so I used Essence Whisper of Spring as a base to which I added two coats of ITT. I feel like it looks like butterfly wings or dragon scales? In any case, it definitely has a pretty effect, even more so in real life. Next time I think I’ll use a white base, I think it would suit this polish too.
