Guest Post by Laura

Yes another Guest Post :D I asked Laura from Clothes, Cosmetics and Chat to do one for me and she was kind enough to accept :) You don't know her?! Go visit her blog right now! :D  I mean really, you'll miss something if you don't ;) Enough talk, here is her post:

Hello ladies, 

My name is Laura and I am so happy that Theodora invited me to guest post on her amazing and inspirational blog :-)

Today I'd like to show you a manicure I created using two techniques, sponging (which is relatively new to me) and stamping: 
My first step was to paint my nails with two coats of E.L.F's Pearl Polish.

I then used a sponge to dab on two layers of a lilac polish (shade 123 by Wibo) from around the middle of each nail to the tip.

My next step was to stamp animal stripes across each of my nails using a silver Miss Sporty polish and Mash image plate m57.
Initially, I could hardly see the silver stripes, but once I'd finished my manicure, I could see the silver stripes did add a bit of shimmer to my nails. 

As the animal stripes were extremely subtle, I then decided to stamp another full image on my nails, this time using a darker purple polish by Kiko (no332) and a floral image, one of my favourites, from Mash plate m64.

I was so happy with the final result of this manicure as I loved how the white and lilac polishes blended together and matched the darker purple polish so well. It made me think I had princess nails :-) 

What do you think of this manicure, girls? I would love to know!

I had great fun creating this manicure and I've loved writing this post.Once again, I'd like to thank Theodora for inviting me to guest post. I hope you all enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. 

Bye for now, 

Great post, Laura! The color combination is just lovely, they really look like princess nails ;)
