Purple & Copper Curlicues

I got this color combination idea from DizzyNails (check it out!) and loved her awesome mani. I, however, do not have that beautiful copper glitter, so I had to make do.

3 coats of Orly's Charged Up, and it really did take 3 coats! But So worth it. This is with not final topcoat yet, so ultra shiny!

As always...have not cleaned up yet. Oh, I am trying for the first time one of those bonding base coats, we shall see how it holds out. I thought this color was just yummy...

I stamped using a new Bundle Monster plate using SH Cinnamon Chrome polish, and many topcoats, LOL! The picture on top is inside under an Ott lamp and the one with blue jean background is in the shade, natural light. I loved this color so much I even did my toes with it, only I topped it with 2 coats of SH Ice Queen- a clear base with tiny silver glitter, larger pink, blue and lavender chunky glitter. I love that polish on a dark base...just not on a light color :0)  (that was a mani fail I didn't post LOL!)

Oh, and here is some failed playing around before I removed the previous mani...I definitely need to get some advice on doing this! blegh!

I love the copper over the purple. Have charged up too, but still unworn. And I don't think that "play" nail is a fail, I love it!
