A Cameo Heirloom

Hi everyone!!  I was so excited to use my other new Girly Bits polish, that I just couldn't wait!!


I started off with two coats of Lime Crime Milky Ways, a very soft cream creme.  This is, without a doubt, my absolutely favorite off-white polish!


I then added one coat of Girly Bits Heirloom, with the exception of my ring finger.  I really wanted to add a sweet little cameo for my accent nail, so I grabbed my giant binder o' stamping plates ... but gasp!  I don't seem to have one!  *Enter Scarlett O'Hara style fainting spell here*  So after I regained consciousness, I decided to make my own!


I used my large, medium, and small dotting tools with China Glaze Merry Berry, OPI Casino Royale, and Lime Crime Milky Ways for a dotted outline to serve as my cameo.


I then placed a pale purple teardrop shaped rhinestone in the center of my cameo.  I followed it all with one coat of SV.


I absolutely love the final result!  Heirloom is such an amazingly beautiful combination of colors for a look that is so classically stylish.


I started to add a little something extra to the cameo accent nail, but I liked the simplicity of it so much, that I left it as it was.  



I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do!

Happy Painting!



Colors: Lime Crime Milky Ways, Girly Bits Heirloom, China Glaze Merry Berry, OPI Casino Royale
