Shredded Flutterbys

When I bought polishes from Lacquistry, I had to include Shredded in my cart. It was black and looked oh so fantastic. I had been brainstorming a bit on how to use her when I decided I'd make it a colorful mani. I grabbed the polishes from my recent Avon haul and went to town. I first did a coat of white to make the colors pop and then free handed these diagonal stripes. First with Avon Blue Escape, then Sweet Mint (which really isn't a mint at all) and finally with two quick coats of Fuchsia Fun.

I then added one thick coat of shredded on top. It was a little thick, but considering the consistency of the shreds, it's understandable. I then stamped the butterflies from plate m78 with Sinful Black on Black. I did keep this on for 4-5 days, but couldn't help picking at the edges of the pieces that stuck up. The roughness took a little getting used to but overall kept up well. I've recently seen a dupe from Icing blogged about, but haven't looked at it in person.


  1. Love this mani. I love the color combo and diagonal stripping technique you used and the shredded portion goes the extra mile. Very nice!
