Let It Snow!

Hello lovelies! Here is a winter inspired Holiday manicure for ya! 

Two coats of China Glaze Midnight Mission a beautiful shimmery navy blue. I used a Finger Paints Paper Mache for the snow flakes. The plate used for the design is Bundle Monster BM-213.

I wanted to add a bit more sparkle so I used the China Glaze Wireless Holographic Top Coat to make it twinkle.

Midnight Mission is one of the polishes that I completely forgot that I had and just found while I was dusting and organizing my vanity like a maniac. Ha! It's pretty perfect for a this time of year and is a great base against the white snow flakes.

BAM! Preeety!
The end result with the holo top coat and a topping of Seche Vite for shine. I hope you enjoy this manicure, all of the Christmas inspired manicures I have been seeing are making my day and getting me even more pumped for Christmas. 13 days away!!!

Galaxy nails!

Hello friends! Happy Friday!!
I have been seeing these nails all over the place and I absolutely LOVE them, so I had to give them a try. They are super easy and the possibilities are endless. I just used a black glitter base and a bunch of my favorite China Glaze colors to sponge on and VOILA!

The colors I used were all from China Glaze except for the base which is Goth from Orly.
China Glaze Lemon Fizz, Bohemian Escape, Grape Pop, Rich & Famous, Shower Together, SeƱorita Bonita. I used a white polish and a dotting tool to add some stars.

China Glaze in Fairy Dust (in hand) as a top coat to add some glittery goodness.

So Pretty :)
Thank you so much for checking out my Galaxy manicure, I hope you like it as much as I do. If you have any questions on the sponge manicure check out THIS post from my last sponge mani.

Have a great weekend!

Red and Gold Christmas Mani

Hello Lovely friends!  Can you believe it is already DECEMBER?!  I am so glad that it is because I LOVE the Holidays. Check out this pretty Christmas inspired manicure that I came up with. I hope you like it.

Red and gold is the perfect color combination for a Holiday manicure.

My nails are super short right now so it only took one coat of China Glaze's Ruby Deer for the base, the gold is also by China Glaze and its called Passion. Ruby Deer is one of the best red cremes out there, with the right application I think one coat would work for longer nails too.

The design in from Bundle Monster Plate BM-203. I am till so pleased with the newest plates that Bundle Monster came out with. They stamp so well and the size is perfect for my nails.

Thank you for reading! More Christmas manicures to come. Let me know what YOU want to see in the comments! Have a great weekend friends. :)
