NOTD: Rubies & Butterflies

Alright, I went a bit ahead with today's nails =) After a few hours I was already looking for a way to spice up my monochrome mani. (I know, I know...) I layered the whole mani with a transparent red polish, which is not even opaque in 4 coats. My suggestion: if you can't get something opaque no matter what you do, layer it over something else to make use of it! =D I don't only mean the sheer shimmers that change the color of a darker polish, I mean tinting an existing color with a creme/jelly type polish =) Anyway, when I saw the cool effect I achieved, I immediately thought of Jeanette's layered konadicures, and it came to me: Of course, another image on top! So I stamped the butterflies from plate m78 in silver on thumbs and rings =)
