Tonight is my girly birthday meal.. see what I mean about extended birthdays in my family :-)?
We are going to a Japanese grill called Shiki and I cannot wait. Some of us have been before and the food was amazing, all freshly cooked in front of us by our own chef for the evening. There are 9 of us dining tonight and I just know that we will all love our meals.
I did something a little special to my nails for the occasion...
I started with two quick coats of Barry M Papaya which is a lovely rich peach to orange colour. Then using a small piece of make up sponge I added Barry M Grapefruit to half of each nail.
I then topped each nail off with Northern Lights top coat in Silver. Once that was dry I opened my shiny new stamping plates that had arrived from Israel recently. I had been lemming after these plates for months so once I saw they were back in stock I purchased them quickly. You can read more about how to do that here... Nail Craze.
Using Konad Black I stamped the monarch style butterfly wing onto each nail. I love that you get two different sizes and I love it that the design is flipped so your right and left hands are mirror images.
Finally using a dotting tool and a little white nail polish I added some dots to make my nails look more like authentic monarch butterfly wings.
I am loving how detailed these nails look. I think Natalie from Nail Craze is brilliant for designing this beautiful plate and I look forward to using the others I also purchased from her.
I am off to eat at the grill - have a great evening everyone :-)
