Today I have for you all the mani that you picked out for my mom. You all chose:

Purple Nail Color
Creme Finish
Konad Plate M57

I painted my mom's nails with one of my beloved TiNS nail polishes last week and she has been wearing the heck out of it, so that's what took so long on this mani. The TiNS are really so pretty you MUST wear it until the wheels fall off - so to speak :)

Anyway, on to this mani. I spared my mom the animal print - but I was really tempted to use it! I decided to paint the base color using the LA Colors Purple I swatched the other day. I then used the fishnet pattern and NYC - Royal Foil - a purple, foil polish. Then I used the flower pattern from the same plate and China Glaze - Passion and stamped on the flowers. For the final touch, a little clear jewel was added to the center of each flower. I wasn't real impressed with this mani as I got started on it, but the little jewels really added a nice cherry on the top!

Thanks again to all who helped select My Mom's Next Mani!

That turned out great! I hope she likes it!!

Lucy said...

Brooke I told you that your a Goddess of Konad. This turned out beautifully. It sort of reminds me of fabric that royalty would wear. I can imagine it on a gown from the Showtime series The Tudors. The little gem just makes it even more special. Fantastic job. Love Dinky and her pink dress. Just adorable.

Mom's mani turned out great! I love the patterns you chose and agree with Lucy about the fabric of the royals. Dinky looks rather proud in her pink dress :)

It wasn't all what I voted for, but my gosh how gorgeous it turned out! Love it!

Kae said...

Turned out beautiful! Did your mom like it? Love the fishnets, flowers and the jewels, it all just came together perfectly.

Rai said...

Love how this turned out!
The touch of rhinestones makes it cuter.

How did your mom like the mani?

Helen said...

That is breathtakingly gorgeous. And Lucy is spot on about the Tudor theme.

I think your mum got off lightly! No neon? No animals? No pirates?! She is lucky - I'd love to wear this one.

I like this mani but like she says you have to wear the Tins till the wheels fall off. We didn't get pics of it but it was a pink one, I think it has been my favorie so far. Brooke says Iv'e used my allotment of Tins so I guess I'll have to find a source! Ha (I hope)

Brooke said...

LAINE - Yes, she did like it. Thank you.

LUCY - i need to make me a t-shirt that says "goddess of konad" lol
Thanks. I think we were both pleased with the finished product. the littel jewels really did turn this mani around and give it that special touch.

MARY - You always got your eye on my dinky! Thanks!

KITTY - Thanks.

ALEXLYNDRA - So what did you vote for? Something more wild?

KAE - Yes, she did like it. Thanks/

RAI - Yes, Mom did approve. I took it easy on her!

HELEN - Yes, I guess I was at a weak moment and took it easy on her! If I did this pattern on your talons I would have to do like 3 or 4 stamps!! lol

XUAN-AN - Thank you!


MOM - haha - good luck on that source!!
