And a Hard-Boiled Egg!
(Night Watch, Terry Pratchett)
I know, I know, I already started last weeks post with a Pratchett quote. But with this weeks color of “Lacke in Farbe … und Bunt!” by Lena and Cyw – lilac – I just couldn’t resist. “Night Watch” is one of my favourite books, and that’s also why I tried to put some lilac – the flower, not just the color – on my nails:
Unfortunately, this was the only stamping plate with a four-leaved blossom-pattern I have, and it looks like lilac only if you give it a generous squint. 😀 But intention counts, right? 😉
I used a KIKO polish as base for this again, and I can’t praise them often enough. Even with this light color two coats were perfect, and it is such a pretty cream.
I dabbed a darker shade of lilac and some golden glitter over the stamping with a rough sponge, to at least give the illusion of tiny blossoms. I’m not sure if it worked out as planed, but I like the result anyways. 🙂
By the time you will get to read this, I am traveling again and will do so for the next few days. I’m not sure if I will have a decent internet connection and time to check for comments or answer them, so don’t be mad at me if it takes a few days for me to reply, ok? *puppyeyes* 🙂
