The Last Twin Post with Carmela - MASH 49

Morning Loves! Today is the last twin post with Carmela of Polished Indulgence! If you haven't seen any of our twin posts yet, you can check out all of mine here :) I'm sad this is coming to an end, it was so much fun to come up with these! Todays requirement is using MASH 49. I'm not going to lie this one stumped me a little. The plate has a cool giraffe pattern, some stars, a crown, tidal waves (or wind blowing?) and an interesting looking flower. I thought about a number of different ways to use this plate and had a hard time coming up with something that I really liked. Plus I wanted to finish twin posting with a bang! I eventually settled on the cool giraffe pattern and I think this is my favourite twin post that I came up with!

For this look I started with two easy coats of OPI Cuckoo for This Color from the 2010 Swiss Collection on all but my index nail. I found this a few months ago for cheap in Trade Secrets and had yet to use it. It's a sparkly forest green blue shimmer. It shows up more green in my photos, but in the right light, it gives a stunning blue shimmer. On my index I used 2 coats of Bille Gold, a gold foil, and then used Gold to stamp with MASH-49 on all my nails but on my index I used CFTC to stamp with. Finally I freehanded some triangles on with CTFC and a medium length striping brush then added gold studs from Born Pretty Store along the triangles to give it some oomph.

This felt very rich to me. I really like the green gold combination and I realized after that I did a similar colour combination before here, but shush that's ok right? lol

These twin posts have been SO FUN! Since this was again Carmela's pick I can only imagine she has come up with something amazing! I can't wait to see and all of you should shoot over to Polished Indulgence to see what she's done!
