Sponging Nail Art: Using Lakme: Autumn Trend

Whew! For some strange reason google blocked my account yesterday! :O
Yes that can happen. I am not sure why but I had looged in using my hubby's pc and logged out. Again after half an hour I logged in using my pc and I got error saying my account is blocked due to some unusual activity. My only guess is google probably registered a change in IP address. So it blocked my account. Google please note that I log using whatever is at hand. My pc, His pc, My cell, His cell(s), mom's pc when I visit her..its a long list.  Please do not keep blocking for this. I had a mini heart attack yesterday when I couldnt see my blog.

*rant over* Coming on todays mani..

Sometimes I get these sudden strong urges to do sponging. And then I keep thinking about it all day and realize I just have to do it to get it out of my mind. 

I decided to use an unused polish I had. Lakme Crimson Fire from the fast and fabulous range.
Its a true blue red. to read my review of these Fast and Fabulous polishes click here.

I sponged using Lakme Fast and Fabulous' Popping Pink at the nail base and OPI's Funkey Dunkey at the tips. Now Popping pink blendsreally nicely into Crimson Fire. If you look closely you can see a distinct pink hue at the nail base but its very difficult to make out where it starts and where it ends.
Applied SV for top coat. 
Stamped it using: A Miss Claire Gold Polish
Stamping Plate: XL K

SV bubbled a bit :-/ But overall it was a very pleasant mani.
Instantly brightens up your hand. 

If possible do leave a comment on how you like this. I know its not possible to comment on every blog you follow and every post you see. Maybe you could make my day today :)

Have a good week ahead!
