+NOTW: Simple sophisticated nails for my cousin's wedding#=

how to: 

  1. prep nails and apply a base coat.
  2. apple 2 coats of a shimmery light purple/nude color
  3. on thumb: use an opaque bright purple and stamp flowers on side
  4. on thumb: use a thin brush to swipe decorative silver and white lines
  5. on ring finger:  mix a dark maroon/brown with a cool silver grey and apply stamp on entire nail. the tip of the nail should be reddish (due to the maroon brown) and the colors should blend into a nice gradient
  6. on ring finger: apply a decorative sticker on the side.
  7. finish off with 1 coat of top coat on all fingers, and an extra topcoat on the ones with stickers! good luck :)

i used the swirly floral design at the top left
these stickers from ebay were my favorite design...i used it all up! sorry! :(

the two polishes i mixed together for the stamp:
i got this nail polish from a limited edition collection at wetseal. i'm not sure if they are still available anywhere else, but it has a great quality, almost better than my essie nail polishes!
i love this dark, rusty shimmery brown by sinful colors! reminds me of brown + maroon mixed together. perfect fall color!
