I painted this manicure purely experience and mood based. I don't get into too many personal details on this blog, but I will share a small piece of me in this post. I have been on a bit of an emotional roller coaster this weekend/week due to a death in my family. Today my aunt lost her battle with cancer. It was expected, but death is always sad no matter what you think you are prepared for. Yesterday I had just come from what was, as I know now, my last visit with her. My family was in a state of wait as we did not know when her last day would be. As I sat thinking about what to paint on my nails when I came home that evening, I was overcome with mixed emotions. Sadness over an upcoming loss and what it means for my family, her children, her husband but a desire for relief of her suffering and an overwhelming sense of beauty and gratitude for the life that she lead as my second mom. Death can be both: dark and beautiful. This was my reflection of that.
Unfortunately these pictures don't do this manicure justice. I really love it, it's very beautiful. However, these pictures were taken after a full day of wear (and a long swimming pool adventure) so you can see some wear.Zoya Kelly and then added nail decals from Sienna Diamond Nails sheets NA-04 and NA-10. I then used my new Bundle Monster plate BM-224 with Konad Special Nail Polish in White. One coat of Seche Vite was used for the top coat.

I first painted three coats of Zoya Pippa. I then sponged a layer of each Orly It's Not Rocket Science, China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada and Pippa. I stamped with plate BM-215 using Konad Special Stamping Polish in Black. For added shimmer, I coated the entire manicure with China Glaze White Cap and a top coat of Fast Forward Top Coat.
