New adventure!

So I'm new! I'm Angela - by day I'm a Zumba instructor but in my spare time I LOVE to do nails! I really enjoy trying to come up with fun new looks.

Recently I did a stamped jelly sandwich mani (one person called it a "Stampwich" - love it!) that was featured on Vivid Lacquer's Facebook page. That was thrilling all on its own, but the response was amazing!

It was suggested that I start a nail blog to show my manicures, so here I am!

A little background - when Vivid Lacquer opened the preorders for these stamping plates earlier this summer, being a huge Halloween fan of course I gravitated to this plate, but what came to mind instantly was the idea to do a stamped jelly sandwich that would look like a pile of fallen Autumn leaves. When my plate came, I was so excited to try my idea!

This is my Fall Leaves Stampwich.

I used:
- Orly Nailtrition base coat
- L'Oreal Mango Mamma
- Milani Brown-a-licious, Wet n Wild I Red a Good Book and Sally Hansen Lightening stamped in between the layers of orange jelly polish with Vivid Lacquer's VL013 stamping plate
- Seche Vite
- Essie Good to Go

Even more exciting was when Anni asked me if I would do a photo tutorial! That should be ready soon and posted on Vivid Lacquer's Facebook page and I'll post it here, too!

If you do a mani like this, I'd love to see it!
