Autumn Leaves Stamping

Hi, guys! Another quick post from me today with a recent stamping mani that I did. I just had to do some fall leaves before the end of the season!  :)

For my base color I applied Duh Nail Polish Leaves Dancing in the Breeze. I just love this polish! No problem getting the right assortment of glitters on the nail and it has such a pretty shimmer. I'm also a complete sucker for square glitters! I stamped with Barry M Foil Effects Gold using an image from plate MJ XLV, available from My Online Shop.

Thanks a lot for reading. As Bill Belichick would say - we're on to winter!

Fall Glitter Gradient

Hi, guys! I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving here in the US. We enjoyed the holiday with some good friends and definitely ate (and drank) too much!

For my Thanksgiving mani I did a fall glitter gradient using Nine Zero Lacquer Pumpkin Everything as my base color. I then applied Girlosity Cosmetics Turning Leaves at my cuticles for the gradient. I absolutely loved both polishes and I thought they worked very well in this combination.

Thanks so much for looking!

40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Black & White

Hi, guys! This weeks prompt for the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas Challenge is Black & White and my assigned pattern prompt this time around was stamping.

I struggled so hard with this mani - I think I'm just really out of practice with stamping. This was my third attempt and I finally called it good. I started with a base of Sinful Colors Whiteboard. Then I stamped an image from plate Pueen49 using black stamping polish from Born Pretty.

Overall I think it looks pretty cool - I really love the simplicity of black & white nails.

Thanks so much for looking and be sure to check out all of the other black & white manis, too!
