Damask Matte Pattern

I must confess that I have the wee hands of a small people (about the only small thing left on my bod these days). A lot of you missies have problems with finding stamps that fit your whole nail and are probably fans of the 3rd gen Bundle Monster plates and especially my gal Julie with Messy Mansion. I have quite the opposite prob here peeps. My nails are so tiny - awesome images like her damask pattern from plate MM06 are too big to fit the whole sweet thing on my nail.
I went for the middle of the plate closed my eyes, OK not really, but held my breathe and went for it. I thought the super trendy combo of peach and turquoise would be great to show this pretty off plus I haven't mattified anything as of late. This is two coats of Orly Prelude to a Kiss stamped with Sinful Rise & Shine.

Rise & Shine is the epitome of that gorgeous mix between a saturated green and aqua with a slight shimmer that was hidden by the matte texture that it dries to naturally as well as my two coats of Essie Matte About You on top. This little lady needs a redo with a super shiny topcoat that's all I know. I then reversed the combo for the accent nails. Booyah!
