Orly Fresh & Leopard Print Stamping

The theme for this Monday's mani was animal print and I figured this would be a good time to try out stamping again. For the base, I chose Orly Fresh. This is a bright green creme that just brings a smile to my face. I'm beginning to really fall in love with Orly's formula. This was an easy two coats (the second wasn't really needed).

On to the stamping adventures...now that I've finally got the polish to adhere, I have to work on my placement. I used the leopard print image from BM plate 221 for this mani. I added one coat of Orly Snowcone and stamped with Orly Frolic

Its nowhere near perfect, but I guess its wearable (at least for one day). I really like Gumdrop and Frolic...I cant wait to wear them both as full manis. Let the stamping adventures continue...I wont let this get the best of me...lol.

How do you feel about this mani and the inspiration board above??? I've never paired green and leopard print...but I'm feeling it. I've got an idea of how I can put some pieces together in my wardrobe to rock this!

Love the alternating nails with the stamping or even non stamped. So summery which is nice as they are so tossing fall everything at us now with so many kids going back to school here in 2 weeks.

@anonymous. I thought the 20% off Barielle went through the 12th and just discovered yesterday it was done...boohoo! I was going to wait for my check to some today and put my order in. Now I have to trim my order way back.
