Guest Post from ChitChatNails‏

So as i mention this is my 1st Guest post since i'll be gone to family trip today. so what we have is the beautiful Manicure from chitchatnails, which i love so much, because she was asking where i come from and she did a manicure based on my country traditional cloth! im so so happy, thank you Martha for doing this :) 
Hello my name is Marta from ChitChat Nails.  I've been blogging for just over six months now; there are many reason that I enjoy blogging so much, but one of the biggest ones is the opportunity to meet people from around the world!  One of these awesome Ladies is Chell.  I have been enjoying her blog and long nail manicures... but even more so I like chatting with her on Twitter.  Chell is so personable; when I post photos of my children (I have three little ones) she always leaves a sweet comment... in turn, I love seeing Chell's Tweets featuring her large polish hauls (she gets so excited about them, and that's so contagious ;) ).  I really do like chatting with you on twitter girl!

When Chell asked me to do a guest post I was really honoured and excited.  My nails are in their utmost nubby stage right now and I though "How am I ever going to compete with her long and slender nails?"  I thought I'd google "Indonesia Fashion" and see what would come up ... just as a starting point of inspiration.  The first image that captured my eye was this lovely earthy gold outfit that a model wore on the runway.  From there I stumbled upon a unique artform called "batik".  In Indonesia this technique predates written form, and it is a "wax resist dyeing technique in fabric, an ancient art form".  I have attached a few photos of "batik" fashioned fabric.  This is my source of inspiration and I hope you like this easy to do manicure of mine.  I also happen to have a pashmina, made in Indonesia, that I decided to feature in my photos.

I used one coat of Essie "Sew Psyched" followed by China Glaze crackle polish "Cracked Medallion".  I then used the new BundleMonster plate #203 with NOPI "Girl Talk".  One coat of Seche Vite completed the look.

I was really trying to get that earthy, gold and rich look.  The glitter of Cracked Medallion was quite enticing and actually made the stamp (which is a rich chocolate) look almost purple.  Thank you again and I hope you enjoyed my Indonesia inspired manicure.
