Pink Wednesday!! China Glaze Empowerment

Happy Pink Wednesday!!

  Today I chose to wear China Glaze's Empowerment from their 2010 BCA collection. You may have seen an awesome snakeskin mani Once Bitten did recently... Well... I loved it so much I had to create my own version of it. What better color scheme to do it in than Pink?
For this I used Three coats of Empowerment as my base and then sponged it with CG Strawberry Fields and 108 Degrees then stamped it in CG Evening Seduction with plate BM215. I really, REALLY like this look.  It's sassy and Pink and totally awesome. I was so excited to see that this plate set  had a snake skin print because I have a pet snake. I wish he was Pink...

Here is a swatch of Empowerment. I have shown you guys this color before. It's such a cute, girly color. Temperamental formula but such great color payoff!
What are you wearing today?
