The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Inspired By Jewelry - Antique Ring

After failing miserable at finishing the Nail Challenge Collaborative themes the past few months, I can finally say that I finished the month!  I sat down yesterday and focused on creating my inspired by jewelry manicures.  I already had my ideas I just needed to get them done!

I am starting with a design inspired by a vintage ring.  I was looking for interesting pieces to recreate and this ring jumped off the page!

I started with two coats of Keks.  I love this bright blue and it is almost an exact match.

I used Black Taxi and MASH-40 to add the floral element.  I was going to add the frame around the nail like the ring, but the flower took up too much room.  It would have looked crowded if I added it.

I used Hologram to add my diamonds.  Actually I used a dotting tool to pick them off the brush and add them to the design.

I forgot how well Black Taxi stamped. The color combo is awesome! I might have to revisit this design!

Stop by and see what the other ladies created!
