ABC for Llama Nails :)

Hello sweeties,

I recently joined a new facebook group called "Llama Nails" and we are going to be doing a one mani per week challenge in order of the letters of the alphabet! 

The rules are simple:

1. The Challenge will begin on September 12 and runs through March 6 (26 weeks for 26 letters)

2. You only need to do one manicure a week (and it's ok if you don't do every week) we know how life gets in the way.

3. Each week something in your manicure must begin with the letter for the week. It can be the name of the polish brand, the name of the polish, the technique, the stamp, the color, the item depicted on your nails. The sky's the limit!

4. There is a document that lists some ideas for each letter. Please feel free to add ideas and take ideas from that list.

5. We will begin posting on Wednesday's of each week. But if you are unable to post on Wednesday you may post for that letter any time up until the next Wednesday when the new letter begins.

6. I will create an album for each letter (unless someone else wants to do this) that we can post our pictures in.

7. Please feel free to post your blog link to each post. But if you do not have a blog, that is fine too!

8. Have fun, be creative, and as always....save the drama for the llama. Be kind to each other and lets make sure to support one another. We are all trying our best!

Pretty amazing huh? :)

Well here is my A:

A - simply abstract animal print! I know it probably isnt so unique but it is to me! I also loved how my IsaDora Ocean Dive shows perfectly over a black base :) I went for normal gradient + stamping on my index and ring finger (Ocean Dive and Surfers Paradise -both by IsaDora) but wanted to kind of reverse it on my middle finger and pinky. On those two I painted 2 thin coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl and stamped over with Ocean Dive and Surfers Paradise. I did try to get a bit of gradient looking stamp but I didnt mix the colors well and the results are what they are :)

I loved Ocean Dive for stamping and Im sure you are going to see more of it coming soon :)
Thanks for stopping by! xx
