31 Day Challenge 2013 Day 5: Pattern

Day 5 of the 31 Day Challenge 2013 (relaxed version) is Inspired by a Pattern. I was inspired by this peacock pattern on Vivid Lacquer's VL006 plate.

I used OPI Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI as my base (probably one of my favorite purples because of the shimmer!). I stamped using KleanColor Metallic Aqua and Metallic Green. I then used a dotting tool to fill in the peacock eyes using KleanColor Metallic Purple. I love how it turned out!

I thought I would show you how I stamp using more than one color. For the pattern I made random dots over the image and then used the scraper to push it and fully cover the image. For the single feather (not pictured with color) I put Metallic Blue over the eye of the feather and then surrounded it with the Metallic Green. I love using multiple colors when stamping!

Does this mani look some what familiar? This is my take on a mani I did last year in February. The peacock mani from last year is my most "pinned" mani ever! So I thought I would try doing one like it again, using the same colors but different stamp! And I love them both! :)

This is my older peacock mani. Original post can be found here.

New one! Love them! :)
