Monkey See, Monkey Do, Sequel--Enamel Girl--sort of!

Hi Readers!  Today I'm featuring one of my fave bloggers BUT it's not her design!  It's actually the winner of her Spring contest!  This has never happened before in Monkey See, Monkey Do week LOL!  When I saw this mani picked as the winner I totally agreed and said (in my best Guy Fieri voice) Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner!!  Here's the post where Kay announced the winners.  And this is where you can find the winner, Neivys, post.  This mani is SO lovely!
What I wish I had done differently though is this--I painted my nails with Zoya Pippa to have the yellow really pop but then I had to do an upside down and backwards gradient which resulted in cruddy looking cuticles! UG.  Next time I used these color I'll paint half way down with orange and then yellow and then sponge lol!  Here's a nice close up, would you be so kind as not to look at the crap a$$ cuticles???!!! Thanks!
And here's Thumby--as always he turned out great!
Here's a shot of the left hand!  For some reason my index sunflowers decided to mate on this finger lol!
Isn't this a fun mani Readers??? No wonder she won--this is just picture perfect!  I got a ZILLION compliments on this mani too.  I just wish we were having some warm sunny weather instead of chilly cloudy weather here lol!

Here's a lovely side by side of Neivy's and mine
To get my look I used Zoya Pippa, OPI A Roll In The Hague, OPI Animalistic and I stamped using MASH M21 and Cheeky 11.  Here's a pic of the polishes I used
What do you think of this one readers?  I really love it and I'm so grateful to Enamel Girl for her contest because it lead me to another cool blogger and a fabulous mani!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
