Light It Up Blue Blogger Collaboration Manis for Autism Speaks



Today I'm getting a head start for the week with a BLUE mani in collaboration with my blogger friends for World Autism Awareness Day - Light It Up Blue/Autism Speaks - April 2, 2013. Click for more information on Light It Up Blue.




Light It Up Blue Manicure for Autism Speaks 2013



 I used butter LONDON Sprog and Royal Navy and some plastic wrap.

Then I used butter LONDON Royal Navy - some people layer a full light coat of the second color and use the plastic wrap to "remove" some of it, letting the base color show through. I don't have much luck with that method so I put a little in a plastic paint palette and dab it on with the plastic wrap.

But...I wanted something a little more "on theme" than just the blues, so I removed the dabbing over the accent nail and replaced it with a puzzle piece stamp - BM 319

So what do you think? I think it looks like marble and is a really cute look.

butter LONDON polishes are available at various retailers and at butterlondon.com and retail for $15 per bottle.


And Jen's Nail Files on Facebook did a mani to join us!
