Black and White Challenge Day 6: Color base with White

The 'Skittle mani' is not a style I sport very often. I think it's due to my obsession with evenness and symmetry! Nevertheless, I decided to give it a go today when I couldn't decide which pretty pastel I wanted to use on my nails and I really love the result. I'm really taken with pastels and I think the love is fueled by my desperation for summer's return after I was given a taste of it the a few weeks back when we had a few days of sunshine!

I've been doing too much online shopping this week and I have my eye on some jewellery from Fresh Trends. I'm a bit of a piercing junkie and I had my anti-helix pierced a few weeks ago as a little birthday present to myself! For whatever reason I didn't get a chance to mention it at the time but you can see it here!  I had no idea about all the amazing jewellery you can get for the more uncommon piercings like my new addition. I think this is gonna have to go in my rook piercing on the other ear!

  14. I've seen many blogs reference using the Sally Hanson InstaDry for stamping, but I haven't done so well with it, it dries so fast on the plate it leaves a smudge before I can scrape it and then the image is muddy on the stamper. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, any tips?
