The Digit-al Dozen Does Art: 31 Day Challenge 2013! Day 10: Metallic Nails

How on earth do I do metallic nails and art theme in one day? So glad I have a stained glass window stamp! Phew! :)

There was no real inspiration for these except stained glass Gothic windows. Though I found these after and thought the colors were close-ish! :)

I used Barry M Gold Foil Effects as my base and then "splodged" on Klean Color Metallic Fuschia, Klean Color Metallic Mango, and Barry M Lilac Foil Effects. I then stamped using Konad Black and Messy Mansion's MM01 plate. I didn't line it up just right and so my tops are a bit lame but I still love them! :)

Here are my "splodged" nails before the stamp. I used a cotton pad to "splodge". :)
