New LeaLac Stamping plate

I broke down and bought one of LeahAnn Larowe's new stamping plates from her site, shopllarowe. I got stamping plate A-XL and finally received them and tried the stamps out right away!

So thrilled with these! The images are huge and that allows a person to put stamps on the nail a bit differently for each nail, which I have found hard to do with other stamping plates.

Here we go...

 
Base is Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet 2 coats. Stamped with Konad stamping polish in green. Such a clean gorgeous combo, I thought, but I wanted to try out a new polish I am working on :0)
 


I was extremely pleased with the final look. The polish I used as a layering polish is a gold/green duochrome with scattered, sparse gold holographic particles...very fine glitter, basically. It really doesn't change the color of the polish under it....just adds some glamour. What do you think? I am considering adding this one to my etsy site to sell.

Fall is in the air here...no frost yet during the night, but it is getting down around 45F at night. We lost one of our cats recently...he just never came home-we suspect someone is poisoning cats in our neighborhood and he was not a roamer. I still miss him. A lot. So many changes recently, and he was a steadfast little friend. Goliath actually adopted us. We rescued him when he had been abandoned in a rental home-the previous owners had locked him and his little buddy, Dove inside the house and then just left. They managed to get out, and it took my daughter 2 weeks to catch him. Once he was in the house and we were getting him healthy, he bonded to my husband and I like nobody's business. I nursed him through a bad respiratory illness and couldn't take him to the Humane Society for adoption...so we kept him and he kept us. Fifteen pounds of tough, lovey fur. We miss you Goliath.
 Whoa...not sure where that came from...Didn't mean to impose that downer-sorry everyone.

I'm so sorry to hear about Goliath...
One thing is to KNOW your cat/animal of any kind is dead, that's hard - but not knowing what happened - that is devastating, and a part of you will never stop wondering... My heart goes out for you...
I love the stamping mani!

Maria-you are correct, the not knowing is the worst. You are a sweetie, thank-you *hug*

Aren't the Lealac plates amazing! I think they're my faves so far (and am having to resist the urge to stamp everything, lol!) I love your mani, and the shimmer is gorgeous. So sorry about Goliath :(

ABOP, I am so glad you got some of those plates-I know you've had a hard time finding stamps large enough-I am happy they worked for you! Thank-you for your empathy *hugs and smiles*
