Monkey See, Monkey Do Monday Lucy's Stash!

Hi Readers!  I feel I've been very blessed in the "nail" world as I've been lucky enough to meet my blogger and you tube idols!  When I first got into stamping I would devour all the posts from blogs such as Rebecca Likes Nails, Colores de Carol, Let Them Have Polish and You Tube Channel Soguesswhat11 it wasn't too long before I actually got meet all these ladies via facebook and discover the wonderful person behind the blog.  This has happened to me with several bloggers and I feel so blessed.  Recently I got to meet my latest blogging crush, Lucie, from Lucy's Stash.  Thanks
to the loveliness that is Pinterest I discovered Lucy's Stash and the zillion way cool mani's there.  Today I have chosen a mani of her's that I saw a little bit ago and the instant I saw it I said, "OMG I have to do this one!"
Talk about smooth and classy to me this mani says it all!
I know it looks hard but thanks to striping tape it really isn't!
Lucie used the Spa Rituals for her mani but I have zero Spa Rituals so I had to think quick on my feet! Zoya Pasha for the base, Orly Buried Alive is the brown, OPI Take The Stage is the orange and OPI Rising Star is the gold.  I think it turned out great!
My friend Dema and I did a little swap a bit ago and she set this ring with my polish! OMG it looks great with this mani!
I really want to haul this mani out again in the Fall--these are perfect Fall colors!
To see the original mani Lucie did please check here

Here are the side by side comparison pics how'd I do?
