Sunday Stamping - For Mom
I'm combining two challenges today - Adventures in Stamping is over a pink base. Check! Too Cute-icle Bikini is a bright pink scattered holo.
Challenge Your Nail Art's week-long challenge is all about celebrations! Today, we're celebrating moms. So, my first stamp (done with Finger Paints Black Expressionism and Anna's Nail Art W228) is a tattoo-style heart-mom!
My mom loves hummingbirds and flowers, so that's the theme for the rest of the mani. Plate W202 from Winstonia has this cute hummingbird that I had the *worst* time getting to work. I originally wanted metallic hummingbirds. Nope, none would work! Finally, I got the black to work, and dabbed a little Dollish Polish It's Bigger On The Inside on it for a little blue glitter.
My mom also loves jewelry, so I got out my Profound Glassworks crushed synthetic opal topcoat. It's subtle, but you can see the bits of red and green opal over the black!
My mom has always loved gardening. When my folks moved to Florida, she left behind a ton of flowers and trees, and a thriving tomato garden back in Virginia. I think of all the things she left behind, that was the hardest for her. Now, she's starting over again, and already the flowers are blooming all around their new house.
Hers are much prettier and smell better than the pseudo-acrylic flowers I attached to my nails!
I bought these flowers from Winstonia, but you can get similar ones on Ebay and the like. They're kinda rubbery, actually, not true acrylic flowers.

Flowers, hearts, and hummingbirds are my homage to Mommy! What would be a part of your Mommy Mani?
