I was also challenged by Gloss48 to come up with an inspired mani with these gorgeous polishes. 
I came up with this!

I used Orchidae and Drowned God. I also used some vinyl stencils from Neverland Lacquers. I used the waves and the lines (for the accent nail).

My inspiration came from a Dragon's Egg. My son plays a lot of dragon related apps on my phone. He loves taking care of them, feeding them, fighting them and watching them grow. I am enamored with the colors in these apps. 

When I saw the colors layered together, I couldn't have been more hypnotized with how they "played" with each other. Just a tiny being (the rhinestone) turning and flourishing into this extravagant, magnificent majestical creature. Fantasy has always intrigued me, something about the unknown and ALL THE COLORS!! 

Gloss48 is having a photo contest and they want YOU to participate! Are you ready??!!
