Lavender Doily Nails

Orly You're Blushing • Konad White polish • Mash-03
The curiously-named You're Blushing is the third polish that I picked up from the Orly Cool Romance collection. The dusty/taupey lavender quality of Orly You're Blushing really drew me in and I couldn't resist buying it despite telling myself I was only allowed two, maximum. It's a very interesting and girly-but-not-too girly shade that is unique to my collection.

I paired it with a sweet border design that in retrospect reminds me of lace doilies. After finishing, I realized this design reminds me of something else:

My very first try at nail stamping! Essie St. Lucia Lilac is more pastel than You're Blushing, but I must have a thing for lavender and lace nails. I'm proud to say my polish application has vastly improved, although as you  can tell from the topmost photo that I still have problems with applying top coat. I was so pleased that Mash-03 stamped so crisply, but even though I thought I gave it plenty of time to dry, my top coat still blurred/smudged the design (especially on the pinky).

My pretty and sharp stamps before top coat
The colour is so totally off (indoor lighting!), but you can see the design is much clearer here. Seems I need much more practice :x
