Irish Meadow ~ a Dollface copy with Icing Bamboozled again


This is a copy of some gorgeous nail art that A Day in The Life of Doll-face posted a few days ago..... I did not do it exactly as she did, so I suppose this was inspired by her art.... It is very easy to do. I only did it on my ring nail as I wasn't sure that it would turn out as I had planned.

The base is 2 coats of Icing Bamboozled Again, a spritely lite green matte creme which dried as I was applying it. That is an excellent quality of most matte polish's - they dry very, very fast. I used Icing Stripe polish in dark green, then added craft hex glitter - which bled horribly- and a small lite green nail gem. HERE is the link to Doll-Face's post ~ St Patrick's Day Irish Meadow.  Top coat on my ring nail only.

I was surprised at how fine the lines were with this striping polish its a bit pricey for a mall store - but it is usually BOGO 1/2 off at Icing..... When I use it again I will take better photos - at the moment my camera battery is recharging; however I dot think I'll be doing all my nails like this = I kinda like the one accent nail as is.

I like it just on the ring finger! Very subtle, yet pretty. Great mani :)

That looks cute! I also have some hex glitter but only tried em once, they also bled badly. Maybe I should give them another go :)
