Tone on Tone Snowflakes


These tone on tone nails pack a punch...a green punch in the face!  Not sure how successful this turned out but that's OK; still sharing the good, bad and the ugly!



Started with a base of three coats of Stella Chroma Recreational Chemistry, no topcoat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.



Stamped using Painted Polish Stamped in Periwinkle using an image from Lina 4 Seasons-Winter 03.

Beach Days!

It's about this time of year that we're all counting the days until we can lounge at the beach or around the pool and some are lucky folks are lucky enough to go down south to somewhere warm around this time of year and if you are one of them, I'm jealous!  In the meanwhile, the rest of us will have to settle with beach nails!


Did a sponged gradient using KBShimmer Sky Jinx, KBShimmer In Yacht Water and Girly Bits Sea You Next Fall.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using images from Moyra 66 (words on ring), SugarBubbles SB31 (index), Lina 4 Seasons-Summer 01 (pinky) and UberChic Beach Please (thumb, middle and images on ring) using Painted Polish Blanc Slate.


Topped using Painted Polish Blanc Slate to finish.

 Thanks for looking and enjoy your trip down south if you are lucky enough to be travelling!

Dizzy Snowflakes!


These nails make me dizzy now looking at them, but I know when I was wearing them, I thought they were pretty cool and they didn't make me dizzy at all!  And these are actually snowflakes so make them season appropriate!


Started with a base of two coats of KBShimmer Set In Ocean, no top coat.  


Stamped using MoYou London Illusion-03 using Painted Polish Blanc Slate.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Winter Vibes!

After a big storm system that hit most of Ontario shortly after Christmas, we had a stretch of rain and warmer weather and it all melted.  A couple days ago, we had some snow again and the temperatures have lowered, so it makes it more appropriate to share a few more snowflake and sweater nails so here's a snowflake mani that has those black flecks I love so much!


Started with a base of  two coats of Sally Hansen Violet Voltage, no top coat.


Topped with Polished for Days Most Everyone's Mad Here, no top coat.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using UberChic UC Christmas-01 on all nails, except accent, which is UberChic UC Merry & Bright (word) and UberChic UC Jingle All the Way (snowflakes), using Painted Polish Blanc Slate.

Flowers!


I love these polishes with black flakies in them but it is hard for me to decide what to stamp on them.  I did these nails that I think turned out pretty cool but not sure if they are the best use of the base as it sure made them busy!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of Polished For Days Bel-Air on a base of Polished for Day white soft focus.


Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.


Stamped using image from UberChic UC 27-01 using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief and Painted Polish Stamped in Greenery.


UberChic UC 27-01






Topped with a final coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.



I did Ms. Cindy using the same colours and plate but slightly different.  I like how these turned out too although my double stamping wasn't that good lol!
