Green Roses

Green roses to celebrate the fact some things in my garden are actually growing! I used NYC Mint Macaroon for the base and stamped the roses on the top with NYC Foil Explosion in Magic Earth.

I want to start this post by singing the praises of the NYC Collection of nail polishes.  I got these on offer in Superdrug and I think I ended up paying about £1.79 for each of these. Not bad at all! (In fact - having just checked the Superdrug website Mint Macaroon is currently 2 for £3 and Magic Earth is £1.99 - Bargain!). I really like the formula of both of them and I was really impressed with Mint Macaroon.  It had a lovely consistency and self levelled very well to leave a really smooth finish.

I started off with two coats of Mint Macaroon and then used my Bundle Monster 323 plate to stamp the roses on the top in Magic Earth.  I really liked the subtle effect I got with this design.  I topped it all off with a coat of SecheVite.

What do you think about same colour stamping - do you like the subtle effect or do you like the colours to pop?

Bye for now x
