Shimmer Snowflakes

I like how these came out. I have been wanting to use my OPI DS 'Coronation' for a few months now and finally! This is two thin coats then tipped with Pure Ice 'Splash' and then I topped that with a Santee polish that's a turquoise jelly glitter. To embellish further I stamped using Konad white with Bundle Monster plate BM-14 and a turquoise gem.


Hopefully we will get a little bit of snow on Christmas.

The weatherman said we should but we will see.


Added a few silver snowflakes and a little more glitter to my 'Saved by the Blue' mani.

I stamped with Pure Ice 'Mercedes' and Konad plate m-20 I was in a hurry to start my son's birthday party when I did the stamping so they are not perfectly lined up, not that they would be if I had time LOL but they may be a little closer.

Adding a second coat of the glitter polish was a mistake as it make it too thick and clumpy. It started peeling off the next day but I was fine with it since I had already worn the blue and silver for 4 days before this.

Wet n Wild 'Saved by the Blue'

Wet n wild 'Saved by the Blue'

I just love, love, love this blue! It went on smooth and I added kind of a no name (Queen's Color 'All Star') polish which is a clear base with fine silver glitter. The glitter was more pronounced in person than the photos and definitely felt a little 'chilly'.

Kleancolor 'Bite Me' with stamping

Kleancolor 'Bite Me' is a beautiful deep glitter infused polish that I just loved! I think this may be my favorite red to date. Then stamped with Konad white and a little

These pictures are a bit rough. I only took them to show my mom and I had it on for a few days already so there is substantial tip wear and a missing rhinestone  lol;} I thought I would share the idea anyways. My ring finger stamp was faded by my Orly 'In a Snap' and for some reason the red kept bleeding through the white stamping and causing pink areas. Kinda strange, I've never had this happen before. I should also mention that this red is a nail stainer!!! It took a while to get it off but it was so pretty it was still worth it. Next time I will surely use a base coat on this one.

Missing rhinestones ;)

See how the red is bleeding through the sleigh turning it pink? Oh well, live and learn. I will not be stamping with white over 'Bite Me' again. Oh and did I mention that I applied a top coat before the stamping? And it still bled through!
