#busygirlnails – Week 1 Antique Gold

I love challenges and right now I’ve decided to jump on the next one, a more relaxed one that goes on once a week and that leaves room for lots of interpretation. That challenge is called Busy Girl Challenge and this week’s theme is Antique Gold. The challenge is hosted by five different instagram accounts (see the picture), two of them being Traci from DRINKCITRA and Marisa from Polish Obsession, a couple of girls that I’ve been following since a long time ago and that I really love!

I actually want to show you a nail art that I’ve done in May but that I’ve forgot about until yesterday when I was going through my archive with unpublished swatches and nail art. It’s actually a stamping done with A England Lancelot over A England Holy Grail which is such a gorgeous gold! I thought this manicure was perfect for the week’s theme and I’m actually having a picture taken in the shadow and one in a little bit of sunlight. The stamping plate is Mash-50 from Mash .

    Som gjord för temat:)
    Använt det motivet själv ett par gånger sedan i somras, gillar den för den blir snygg i de flesta färgkombinationer.
