Maple Syrup Festival Nails

Today the hubby and I are taking a road trip to the Maple Syrup Festival in Central PA.  This is a trip we make, this time, every year.  Who doesn't like buttermilk pancakes, fresh sausage and yummy maple syrup?!?!?!

The hubby requested nails that celebrate this annual trip and of course I met the challenge! :)  The only, kind of, downside to these nails is that they feel very fall-like.  When you visit the website for the festival, its all browns, oranges and greens, and when I think of maple syrup I also think of those colors.  Its in the spring so why can't there be spring colors?!?!  After I completed the design I started having other ideas that I liked better, o-well there's always next year!!

I started with 2 coats of Milani White on the Spot.  I have been looking for a good white polish for sometime now.  Essie Marshmallow is still my favorite, even though there is work involved in achieving a nice application. I wanted something for fast application and I think I found it with White on the Spot. This polish could be opaque in 1 coat with a steady hand, which is wonderful!  I did not see the streakiness I have seen in other white polishes, which is the number one thing that drives me crazy with white polishes!  White on the Spot is top on the list right now and I think it might be a good stamping white also!






I got caught up again and missed some steps when taking pictures...sorry!
I stamped the "maple" leaves using BM04, Essie Little Brown Dress and Essence Wake Up.  I need to make a correction to a statement I made much earlier in this blogs life about stamping with Essie.  When I started stamping Essie was one of the polishes that I had the most trouble with, however, this is no longer true.  I had a excellent time stamping with LBD
I also added some accent dots using NYC High Line Green and Zoya Pippa.



I topped the design off with 2 coats of NL.




Well, I'm off to enjoy some maple syrup!! Hope everyone has a great day! :)
