Snowflakes in Miami

Snowflakes in Miami...or as close to snow as we might get anyway.  For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope it was absolutely wonderful.  Now, Christmastime is around the corner.  Where DOES the year go?  Anyway, let the holiday nail designs begin, right?  I've seen so many pretty designs, I dont know where to start.  I had my kids this weekend so this mani took me a while, but I finally got around to it.  Whenever the girls see me doing my nails, they want theirs done too.  *rolls eyes*
 
This is two coats of Snowcone by Orly.  One of my favorite blues.  I've had my bottle like three years and it's still good as new.  No formula issues, ever.  Then I took the snowflake images from Konad plate m59 to stamp using Ibiza from Zoya, Millennium by China Glaze and Konad Special White.  Pretty, no?

Zoya Kalista

This week I bring you Kalista by Zoya, a lovely, gorgeous dark brown with bronze microshimmer.  Two great coats as Zoya never disappoints.  Then I used the leafy vine image from image plate 50 from Mash using 2030 by China Glaze.  What do you think?  Suitable for Thanksgiving, right?  I hope you all have a great holiday!!!


Happy Polishing!

Glittering Fall Leaves

I'm in a Fall kinda mood but wanted to avoid the dreaded neutral browns and the like.  Although I love those shades, they make my super pale/pink undertone skin look horrible.  Instead, I came up with this look.  Two coats of Glittering Garland (a gorgeous green jelly with tons of microglitter in gold tones) by China Glaze and 2030 for the stamp.  I used Bundle Monster's B04 image plate.   

What are you guys thinking for Fall?  Any looks you love to recreate?  I cant even believe Thanksgiving is next week.  Where did the year go?


 Happy Polishing.

Armed and Ready for Fall...

Well, at least whatever you can consider Fall when you live in Miami (Florida).  No snow ever and our cold fronts consist of 48 degrees.  LOL

This is two coats of Armed and Ready by Essie.  A new favorite of mine, and cant you see why?  It's freakin' gorgeous!!!  It's like a deep olive with bronze microshimmer.  I cant tell you how much I love it.  Application was great too.  Then I used 2030 by China Glaze to stamp on the plaid image from Mash 50 plate. 


Happy Polishing!
