A Faberge Egg? Perhaps-

This post all started with another blog's post.  I was reading Loodie, Loodie, Loodie's newest post and she was comparing some similar polish colors and asked if anyone owned Essie Wrapped in Rubies.  Well I wrote her and sent her a picture of my Rubies.  I then volunteered to swatch it for her to see if it compared to the two from her post.

When it came time to do the swatching, I decided to just do a full mani with it.  I then went crazy with the stamping, layering and the coloring.  Loodie says it looks like a Faberge Egg.  We shall see won't we?

First up, the silly bottle shot.


This is Essie Wrapped in Rubies, Nubar White Polka Dot, Bettina Groovie and one of the nail art pens I used.  Underneath is one of my XXL plates that I used for this mani.

Are you getting excited yet?  I am!  I started with Rubies.  This is a beautiful brown burgundy with copper shimmer.  Of course, the sun was hiding, so I couldn't get any good sun shots.  Here is Rubies.

I haven't worn this polish in years and actually had it in my blog sale.  Well no more! This baby is staying with me!  I then stamped with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White and XXL plate 1.  Here is one shot of that.

This is to show you what I started with.  After stamping all my nails with this, I took my gold pen and did the lines, dotted with the silver pen and colored in the hearts with pink and blue pens.  I then dabbed on Nubar White Polka Dots but it kind of smeared the design.  I finished with Groovie, a hot pink shimmer polish.  Are you ready for the next Faberge?

The last pinky shot came out the best.  I didn't smear that one. You can see little ditzels of Nubar glitter and the design all colored in.  I am really digging these nail art pens.  May need to get some more! I am addicted to this new technique.

So what do you guys think?  Does this look like a Faberge egg?  Do you agree with Loodie?

Any thoughts at all?  Is this a do or a don't?
