Girly-Girl Nail Art Challenge: Day 1, Think Pink

Hi Guys!  I have decided to participate in a nail art challenge that was created by Lindsey from Neverland Nail Blog.  It is a 4 week challenge, with 2 theme days per week.  I will be trying to post on Tuesdays and Thursdays, as are most of the other participants, I believe.  Everyone is free to choose the days they post on though, so there may be some different ones.

Day one requires you to use pink polish.  I decided to use China Glaze Strawberry Fields, because it is a gorgeous color and I don't reach for it enough.  I did 3 coats of that, and topped with one coat of OPI I Lily Love You.  Then I mattified the whole thing, because who doesn't love matte flakie polishes!  I use Essie Matte About You as my matte top coat.

 (Indoors, Flash)

I tried to choose a "girly" stamp, and used one I hadn't done before.  I used Konad M57 for the leopard lace design.  I stamped using Finger Paints Black Expressionism.

The last picture is from my light box which washed out the color a bit, the flash photos are more true to the color of Strawberry Fields.  Its a bit easier to see the flakes and the design on the light box photo though.
