Unripe Grape Fruit

Hi all, I made a franken polish yesterday, I mixed l'oreal seascape 316 perle and zoya harlow, this was the first time I made a semi gloss franken polish and I like the result I named my franken polish, "unripe grape" ... When you look at it, it looks like a grape fruit... :)
In the first photo I sponged zoya in diagonal alternate pattern, then sponged it again with rbl revamp, and stamped it with m63 konad image plate..
In the second photo, I simply stamped it with amisy f04 image plate and added some rhinestones... That's it...
Which mani do you prefer? Do you like my unripe grape nail polish? =)
Hope you like them! God bless!!!

Elements Of Design

Hi all, as I promised on my last post, I will do more abstract designs.. For todays' mani I manually drew the design on my nails... I named my mani "Elements of Design" because my mani is composed of different lines, I drew uneven lines and square shapes for the highlight... i love the selection of colors I used for this pattern... Hope you like it too..God Bless
and I forgot, I'm so lucky because I won on a giveaway again.. yay..Thanks locke of locofashion ... don't forget to visit her fabulous site.. =)

Imperfection Of Shape

Hi all, I am loving abstract designs right now, I think I will post more abstract nailart designs this month, stay tuned for more... :)
In my design, I used caress gray as base, stamped it with konad m65 image plate,I used red konad special polish and added RBL revamp in vertical pattern...I like the red stamp because it matches the red tiny glitters of RBL nail polish...
Do you like it? What's your first impression when you look at my mani?

Hope you like it! God Bless you all!
Thanks 'Chelle of cosmeticcupcake for the Sweet Blog Award!
