Delicate Flowers...Days 14 & 15

Ok here it goes!  I am rushing through this post to try and beat midnight! O_O  I've been slacking off a bit lately and I need to get ahead of the game here! I apologize.
Today is day15 of the 31 day challenge but, since I missed day 14, I decided to combine the 2!
 
I started off with 2 coats of L'Oreal VIP Status...

 
VIP Status is a lovely charcoal color with a kind of blue undertone.

 
The formula is awesome, 2 coats gave full opacity and it is very forgiving if spots are missed, which I tend to do, you can go back over those spots and it blends well.

 
Then using Bundle Monster stamp plate BM-318 I stamped hibiscus flowers with Essie No Place Like Chrome.

 
I'm still working on perfecting my stamping skills but I LOVE stamping with the Essie Mirror Metallics. They are thick enough to make stamping so much easier for someone who gets the process but hasn't got it down pat yet.




 
I felt it was lacking something, and it was still a bit to severe in contrast to be "delicate" so I wanted to add something and decided on Finger Paints Flecked.

 
This is my first time using a flakie. I have to say I am in Love! I love the texture it brings to the mani without being overpowering like normal glitter can be. This particular bottle was a prize in a giveaway that I recently won.

 
I decided I wanted to make this a matte mani to make it even more subtle so I used my new butterLondon Matte Finish. 

 
Unfortunately in my excitement over using 2 new polishes I forgot to take pictures before I mattified it! Sorry! It was just as lovely all shinny as it is matte, at least I thought so.




 
Sorry about all the pictures I just couldn't get enough! LOL
 
As always don't forget to check out what the other lovely ladies have done!
