I always get great feedback on posts that are non-nail related, but we all know it has to come back to the manicure =) I thought about trying some little freehand flowers with my dotting tool, but the test run indicated that I need a little more practice before I got anywhere near a real mani. So I went with good old Konad.
Keeping with the pastel Easter theme of my last mani, the base is China Glaze For Audrey, Konaded with China Glaze Emotion & plate m8. I had the temptation to go wild with the color I used plus another lighter pink & covering my nail with flowers, but I came back to an old lesson of less is more & so I stuck with just one color & after testing multiple stamps to make a tip pattern on my thumbs ended up just using the stamp twice in the corners (this is only part of the design, it's also got a little curlicue coming off the end that I didn't want to use):
Here's the tip test on one of my thumbs:

Shopping also included a stop at Ulta thanks to a 20% off coupon. I managed to control myself because I know most of what they have can be had cheaper online, but I needed cuticle oil sooner rather than later & couldn't resist the OPI Breathe Life polish:
