Whimsical Ideas by Pam ~ Eloise

Hello Dahlings!
 
I'm up to my Inky eyeballs in camp prep today, so I will try to make this brief.
I said try! LOL
 
Da line up: Ruby Kisses Steel Magnolias; Whimsical Ideas by Pam Eloise; Ruby Kisses Snow White; Finger Paints Black Expressionism, Brushstroke Blush & Paper Mache.
 
JUMBO BLACK POLKA DOTS!!! The medium size white satin & small pink hexagons are fun, but da round black jumbo dots are what make this polish SO fun.
 
Ta Da! I hadn't done a Kitchen Sink Mani in awhile, so I built one around the colors in Eloise. I had done da alternating base colors to test some more pens,
but changed my Inky lil mind & did this instead.
Pinky ~ 2 coats of Steel Magnolias with skinny stripes in Paper Mache
& Brushstroke Blossom. I used my Essence uber skinny striper.
Ring ~ 2 coats of Snow White (needs undies) with one coat of Eloise. I was able to get good coverage with the white & pink glitters by brushing & dabbing.
I had to fish for da black polka dot.
Middle ~ probably my worst gradient ever! 2 coats of Steel Magnolias with a gradient of Black Expressionism, Brushstroke Blossom & Paper Mache. Brushstroke blossom is too sheer to work well in a gradient with such opaque black & white polishes.
(both work well for stamping)
Index ~ 2 coats of Snow White with double dots made of Brushstroke Blossom
& Black Expressionism. I used both ends of my largest dotter.
Thumb ~ 2 coats of Steel Magnolias with one coat of dabbed Eloise. I fished out one black dot for consistency, but it barely shows against da gunmetal gray of SM.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
