#clairestelle8sept challenge – Coral

Hi! I thought I’d dip back into challenges again, and this month the Facebook group UK Stamping Community are using #clairestelle8sept prompts for their themes. I’m not going to be able to do all of them as I’m away for two weeks, but I’ll do whatever I can. The first prompt is coral. I chose a pretty coral polish, grabbed my stamping gear and came up with this:


The polish is three coats OPI Bright Lights, Big Color, a lovely orangey coral with a golden shimmer. I thought I’d compliment the shimmer with gold stamping and gold stud accents.


The stamping is Born Pretty Store plate BP-17, which I used last time I wore this polish! I did use a different pattern this time though. I stamped with Barry M Gold Foil. I originally stamped a different pattern in black, which I hated, so I carefully removed the black with a cotton bud soaked in acetone and carried on. There are a few stray black flecks around, it was late and I was tired when I did this!
