Happy New Year!!!


I hope you all are having great holidays. This is my last post for this year. I had a wonderful year, with lots of new polishes, stamping plates and lovely new friends.

I have a New Year theme manicure to share with you all today. This manicure is a mix of regular stamping and stamping decals and for the first time i did stamping sandwich. For base i mixed few drops of China Glaze Hanging in Balance to a clear polish to make it gelly-ish for the sandwich. 

I used Chekky 2013 Jumbo Happy Holidays, Nailways Snow-White New Year and Moyou Tourist Collection 01stamping plates.NYC aqua mystic, Barry m silver foil and Moyou nails black as stamping polishes.

ILL Weekly Challenge - Glam Polish BA-NA-NA!


Today is the day for weekly ILL challenge4 and the theme today is "Nail Art over a Glitter Base". 
I recently bought Glam Polish Ba-Na-Na! from Rainbow Connection, so i decided to do a manicure with this.

Ba-Na-Na! is my love at first sight. When i saw this polish on the store, I knew i need it. It is a yellow crelly polish with lots of  pink, blue, green, orange even purple hex glitters along with few dot glitters of different sizes I wasn't sure about the formula  at the time of buying and thankfully it is good as compared to other yellow polishes. It requires three thin coats or one thin and one generous coat for opacity but the application is nice and I didn't mind that. Glitters are easy to apply too, I didnt have tofish for them and they transferred easily on nail with each coat. It is now one of my favorite yellow indie polish. I applied 3  coats for the pictures below and a coat of seche vite.

Happy Friday. Christmas manicures are in-complete without a Christmas jumper nail art. So, for today I did a nail art showing Christmas Jumpers.

Stamped the base with Moyou Festive Collection image plate 04 using konad sp Red and Moyou sp White. 

Also, for this manicure i tried Moyou's XL Stamper* which is a big squishy stamper and works quite well.
Enjoy the pictures.

Hope you like this manicure. 

Have a great weekend.

Mine plate was etched very lightly. Transferring all the details on my nail gave me really hard time and even with so much care it didnt stamp perfectly. But, overall look is pretty, these pictures are close-ups so you can figure out every miss here easily bt in person this look lovely. 

How do you like it??
