White/Leadlighting - 30 Days of Colour

Hi everyone!!

Today's prompt for the #30DaysofColourChallenge is white/leadlighting.

For those who aren't aware, leadlighting is a technique where you color in a stamping image with jelly polishes.  I did a post some time ago using this technique here.

For today's mani, I used Julie G White Orchid as a base.  It's a pretty good white creme.  The first coat is streaky, but it levels out nicely with a second coat.  I then stamped a flower image from BM-H16 using a Bundle Monster stamping polish, Chromo.  I colored in the flowers with OPI Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? (orange jelly), Essie Jelly Apple (red jelly), Pure Ice Dreamy (pink jelly with holo glitter) and Pure Nail Lacquer Endless (green jelly).  I then topped it off with Seche Vite.

As I was doing this manicure, I thought the red was too dark and hiding the stamping image, so I only used it on my index finger.  It actually wasn't too dark at all and I wished I used it more.  It still turned out nicely though.  It looks like a garden on my nails ;0).

What do you guys think of the final result?  Have you ever tried this technique?
