Please enjoy the following post from my friend Emily!
Hi everyone! My name is Emily and I run the blog Very Emily. I'm kind of fangirling to be guest posting for Kellie today, she was one of the very first blogs I started following way back when her blog was still called Also Known As... I think we started blogging around the same time so I'm proud of us both for still being around after such a long time!
I wasn't quite sure what to create for my guest post but ended up feeling inspired by some nail art I spied on the Pet'la Plate Facebook page. I ended up with something slightly different but I really loved the concept so I had to recreate something similar!
I started with Icing Mintage as my base, a gift from my friend Deborah (Love Varnish) who brought this back for me from NYC. We don't have this brand here, which is a shame because I loved this polish! Then I stamped over it with a diagonal stripes image from Pet'la Plate Loomy Sunday using Mundo De Unas black and white stamping polish. Finished it with Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat. While they didn't turn out perfect I loved how these looked from a short distance. So unusual and almost 3-dimensional looking.
Hope you like them Kellie and thank you so much for having me!
Thanks to Emily for her beautiful work, she is one of my best blog-o-sphere friends and I just adore her!
