Tuesday Tips and Echo Creative Club Reveal

Today is a Tuesday Two-fer :-)
Here are a set of nails I did this week:

These are like Pink and White acrylic nails but I replaced the White acrylic with a Black acrylic mix I made myself. The mix has black acrylic, black glitter, hologram glitter and some clear acrylic to make it a bit less messy.

Now for what I made with the piece I was sent for this month's Echo Creative Club:

How beautiful is that flower? I was tickled pink when I opened my envelope!

Here is the bracelet I made with that awesome flower. 
I added the ceramic bird and ceramic round bead on either side of the clasp. 
They are both from Gaea Cannaday.
Then I found these pretty peach, pink and white potato pearls in my bead box so I made a double strand into a single strand bracelet.
At the clasp is a glass flower, a glass bead and a single pearl dangle.

Thank you Jeannie, I love this flower and I think the bracelet is pretty darn great too ;-)

So what do you think?
Would you wear black nails? yes, no, why or why not?
Do you like the bracelet? Too sweet or just sweet enough?

Oh yes, I do wear black nails. Sometimes I try to make 'stars' on them to make it look like the night sky!


The bracelet: gorgeous! Love it!

Love, love, love your bracelet Shannon! The little bird sets off Jeannie's flower wonderfully!
Yes, the bracelet is sweet enough!

Don't paint my nails - too much trouble :) but yours look really cool!

VEry, very sweet! I love this bracelet - sweet and feminine and romantic. I must confess, I only
Paint my toe nails. I have the shortest, softest nails ever, there is only a very small bit of nail attached to my finger, if you know what I mean. So they don't get painted any colour!

Too sweet? NO! Love, love, love the bracelet. It's just perfect.

Hi Shannon,
I love the nails, if it weren't for the fact that I work where I can not have any dark nail polish, I would have this style in a second.
I love the bracelet. Pink is my color so I would definitely wear it.
