Strawberry Fields Fauxnadacure- click for big pics

Good afternoon everyone! I'm happy today!... We finally have sunshine after days and days of dreariness and rain. It's supposed to reach the upper 60s by late afternoon. China Glaze Strawberry Fields is a perfectly fitting color for a glorious day like today.


















































































Basecoat- China Glaze Strawberry Fields
Fauxnad plate H20- Stamped portions of this full image
Stamped with China Glaze Twenty-Four K
I used a dotting too to randomly place dots of Orly Shining Star on image
1 coat Seche
Pinky and middle fingers sport a coat of Essie MAY

I absolutely *love* Strawberry Fields! I was at a loss as to what color I should use to stamp the Fauxnad to compliment this color. As you can see, Twenty-Four K was probably not the best choice. It blends in with the gold glass flecks of SF a bit too much.
It's still pretty, though. Applying Essie MAY to a couple of nails brings out the image but ruins the juicy-ness of Strawberry Fields.
Any suggestions for a better stamping color?

I can see how you would want a really vibrant image transfer but I think this turned out beautifully!
It's so elegant!
