Clairestelle8: Beige/Early Simple Sunday Post with Sinful Colors Stoned Crystal Shimmer

Hello Readers!

This week's Simple Sunday post is coming a day early to coincide with the Clairestelle8 challenge on Instagram. I'm pretty new over on Instagram, so this is my first time participating in a challenge over there, so I'm kind of excited about it.

Also, I figured these nails will be perfect for Sunday so why not roll them into tomorrow's Sunday post?

Also, yesterday I went a little crazy with the kitchen scissors and a big box and made a jimmy-rigged DIY light box. I've been trying to work on my photography and I was hoping it would step up my picture game a notch. I'm not sure if you can tell the difference or not.... but there it is.

I have been really enjoying the Sinful Colors "Stoned Crystal Shimmer" collection which they put out this spring. I decided to go for a second round of the "Just Deserts" color for the base of this mani, to fit with the "beige" prompt. This was two thickish coats of the color. I also used Thera-pewter from this collection and the light green color from the current St. Patrick's Day collection to fill in the decals.

The image on my ring finger comes from this MoYou London plate, which is a newer release for their "Doodles" collection. I just really liked the strips of floral on this plate; it's really different and lovely!

The other images come from this MoYou London plate from the new Scandi collection. The Scandi collection... is just so cute! I'm sure you'll be seeing more of me playing with this collection in the very near future. ;) But I really like this plate for all the small images- so many of them are perfect for doing a small little image a the cuticle, which is something I find myself doing a lot.
