The Digit-al Dozen Does 2--Cotton!

Hi Everyone!! Sooooo day 2 for the Digit-al Dozen's 2nd Anniversary theme is cotton! OMG cotton people!  Who wants cotton for a 2nd anniversary present?  Better yet who in their right mind wants to do something "cottony" on their nails?

Well you asked for it so you got it.  I give you fuzzy socks!
This was by far one of the hardest mani's I've ever done!  My stamping did not go well at all over the pink!  UG then I had to free hand AND put matte over it so it some what matched the rest of the nails.  
These might not be for everyone!! That's for sure!

If you want to get crazy and try this is just flocking powder or the same color nail polish.  Since I had pink, orange and green flocking powder I pulled out matching polishes.  I applied the polish in a line on my nail each color at a time, let it dry.  Then one color at a time I applied the polish then sprinkled on the flocking powder so pink then flocking powder, I did all the nails with pink then went back and did the orange and then flocking powder then green then flocking powder.

Here's a tip DO NOT use acetone to clean up any excess stamping on your skin.  You have to pull up with tape.  If you don't the acetone will settle into your flocking powder and completely smear your stamping.  Trust me I found this out the hard way!

Let's go check out what cottony thing everyone else did!
