Funky Fingers Riot and BarryM Instant Effects Moon and Stars

Today I want to show you the mani I had on all week up until Friday!  Yep, a whole week!  It wore really well only showing some real tip wear and one small chip Friday.  It was my birthday yesterday, so I HAD to change it for then of course, and I chose Ozotic Pro 505 and Ozotic Elytra for that (I will post about that later!) but I have posted that combination before too!

I really liked this manicure, it kind of reminded me of all those things you could buy in the '80's early '90's with all the sun, moon and stars designs on them.  Whole matching bedroom sets of curtains, bedding, lamp shades, rugs, the whole kaboodle!  In fact I think I still have some curtains like that somewhere!

Funky Fingers Riot is a fantastic shade of purple, it does fall a little into 'blurple' territory as it is a blue based shade but most definitely a purple though.  It is rich and vibrant, and being a fan of purple anyway it doesn't take a genius to realise that yes, of course, I loved it!  It applied well with a normal drying time, and didn't present me with any issues.  Having applied 3 coats and allowed to dry, I used BarryM Instant Effects gold foil polish as a stamping polish (these are great for stamping!), and went mad stamping away like a demon.  I got LOTS of compliments on this, which is always nice of course and a good indicator that it is as nice as I hope, and not just me thinking it looks better than it actually does!  Finally a liberal splash of shiny top coat, and stick a fork in me, I'm done.  I hope you like it as much as I did, it was so simple to do, but looks so pretty.

these nails are gorgeous! I'm dying to know which stamping plates were used in this one. I hope you don't mind letting me know :)

It was a cheapie one from a set I bought from ebay, I can't remember where I got it from sadly, but if you drop me an email I will see if I can find out from my archived items and point you in the right direction xx
