springtime purple skittles

Last night when I was doing my nails I was planning on using/swatching an untried color.
Buuuut then I changed my mind because these colors/this design popped into my head.

Ahhhhhh so cute!

Rhinestones, glitter, purple, bows... All my faves.
All these stones are from eBay- purple stone from a 3mm wheel, purple triangle from a "mixed" wheel, mid-sized pearl from 3-size pearl wheel, and a clear rhinestone from a 1.5 mm wheel.

This is my favorite stamping image out of all my plates! It's from Konad m59.
I added a 3mm rhinestone to the center.

Polishes used:
Joe Fresh - Faded Violet (base color on all fingers)
China Glaze - Spontaneous (stripes)
Wet N Wild Wild Shine - Black Creme (stamping)
Nicole by OPI - One Less Lonely Glitter (2 coats over base color on pinky)

I can see myself doing this design in a few more colors this spring!
