And welcome to a tale of a mani which did not start out this way, or with this intention, but which I still think is pretty cool!
The base of this mani is a green distressed mani I did for the 52 Week Pick n Mix Challenge a few weeks ago. It features the incredible Different Dimension Light Year on base, the gold of which completely steals the show here.
It's playing nicely with Jardim Botanico by Pahlish and My Dogsled Is A Hybrid by OPI.
The stamping is a from Vivid Lacquer VL033, a gorgeous plate featuring a mixture of floral and butterfly designs. Now, I suspect this image is actually the intricacies of a butterfly's wings, but in green, on a green base, it suddenly looked like the inner scaffolding of a leaf.
