Hi Everyone!  My name is Mandy and I have a blog called the Chameleon Stampede.  I'm thrilled to do a guest post for Kelsie today!  I've only been blogging for a year and Kelsie was one of the most helpful people to me as a new blogger.  She gave me some great suggestions and insights.  I'm very grateful to Kelsie for that.  Additionally, her blog is awesome! :)

In the spirit of the encouragement that Kelsie gave me, I decided to try something completely new for this guest posting honor.  I tried a one stroke mani!  It's a bit... ahem... abstract.  But, I'm learning and I'm proud that it looks like 'something' and not just a blob.  I think it looks kind of like a poppy or maybe a pansy.  I'm excited about it and I'll keep trying.  






The base polish is called Kahuna from the Indie brand 'Above the Curve'.  It's a gorgeous teal blue holo that covers beautifully in two coats.  The one stroke flowers were done with acrylic paint. 


Thanks again for asking me to do a post, Kelsie!  So sweet of you and I'm thrilled to do it :)
-Mandy
