Christmas Poinsettias

I think this may be my Christmas morning mani...think...obviously won't know until the day arrives but this screams Christmas to me!



Started with two coats of Nubar Cloud White.



Stamped using Konad red special polish using image from SdP D-12. (Some of these pix, the stamping leans a little orange on my monitor anyway but it clearly was red in real life). For the accent finger, I isolated two of the smaller poinsettias on the plate (as its a full size image) and stamped them separately just for something different! I was also thinking maybe red polish with white stamping may be a cool accent...maybe next time.



Anyway, added dots in centres of the flowers using Color Club Gingerbread Man.



Put a little gold glitter using Orly glitter stripper near the centre of the flowers. Have you ever seen the poinsettias with the glitter sprinkled on top? That's what this looks like to me!



Topped with SV. I got a lot of compliments on this mani...from a few men too!

The next day, I took a pix outside....looks like I had mani crack too using SV like nailxchange posted about a while back...not so obvious in real life, but you can see it clearly on the thumb in this mani.



Its getting down to the wire for my most recent giveaway...if you are interested in checking it out, please go here!



Thanks for looking!

  7. Wow! What pretty nails! I love how bright your red color is showing. I have such problems with colors showing up brightly or noticeably on my base coat, even my Konad colors. Your nails look fancy. Lol.
    Have a nice weekend!
