This summer, I had a lovely idea for a kimono style manicure on my natural nails.  I loved how powerful and vibrant the colors were, and it was quick and easy to repair the few chips that my natural nails were subject to by adding a couple of green leaves.  Since I run so much and am really rough on my hands during the summer, chipping is a huge problem.    I have found that putting a base coat on reduced the chipping.

I used a bright red base coat, and stamped on greenery from plate m2, my very first plate in my now rather large collection in Apple Green.  I then used plate m36 to stamp yellow blossoms.  I was a bit disappointed that the flowers didn't pop more in the picture, it looked really great in person.
