Teal and Dark Purple Zig-Zags on my Fingernails

It’s been very cold and foggy here this winter, and I wanted a manicure that reflected the weather but was still kinda cheerful, too.  I thought that if I mixed a dark and a bright color that would do the trick.  So I chose a bright teal – OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook,  and a dark purple – OPI German-Icure for my colors.  I picked Image Plate Pueen 52 and used three different patterns from it to stamp with.  I painted my thumb, pointer, and pinky fingernails with the dark purple, and my accent nails with the teal, and then stamped with the other color.  I like the idea of this mani, and I love the teal stamping over the purple,  but I was disappointed that the purple didn’t stamp very well over the teal.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
