Dry Brush New Year's Eve Mani

Hi loves! Here's my last mani of 2015 to share with you all. I won't actually be wearing this mani tonight, but I did it last week to test out my some new Bundle Monster plates I received for review. I used the dry brush technique for the first time and I quite liked it. It was simple and the end result was pretty cool.

I used China Glaze At Vase Value for the base and then did the dry brush strokes with China Glaze polishes: What a Pansy, Grass is Lime Greener, Peonies & Park Ave, and Metro Pollen-Tin. I stamped using Bundle Monster BM-S212 in Mundo de Unas Black. I was happy that all the little details from my plate transferred since I have had some difficulty with fine lines on BM plates in the past. You can purchase this plate here for $2.49 or here in a set of 10 plates for $14.99.

OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes & MoYou London Holy Shapes 01

Hi guys. The move went smoothly and there were no casualties transferring all of my nail polish babies--yay! I didn't get around to using the 2015 Pantone color Marsala earlier in the year, so I decided to at least say goodbye to 2015 with it. Here's OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes stamped using MoYou London Holy Shapes 01 in Mundo de Unas Gold. The studs are from Born Pretty Store. I tried to match the stamped image to the pattern on the studs and I think I came pretty close. Go me!

OPI Live and Let Die and MoYou London Festive 30

Merry Christmas beauties! Here's my last "Christmas" mani for the month. I used OPI Live and Let Die and stamped using MoYou London Festive 30 in Bundle Monster Creative Art polish Chaos. I received Chaos along with a few other BM Creative Art polishes for review. I'll post a proper review of those in the next couple of weeks. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday and eat lots of yummy food. Also, I'll be moving in 2 days. I chopped my nails and I hope not to break my nails during the process. Wish me luck!

Reindeer Christmas Sweater Nails

Merry Christmas Eve! Quick post today as I still have some last minute wrapping to do. I made these stamping decals on my UberChic Beauty mat with OPI Tiramisu for Two (nude), OPI Going My Way or Norway (caramel), MoYou London Festive 06, and Mundo de Unas Chocolate. I haven't made decals in awhile, but my UberChic Beauty mat made it super easy. I'm officially on break for a week and a half from work so I hope to make more decals and play around with it a bit more.

OPI GelColor Venice the Party & MoYou London Festive 30

Good morning my polished friends. I can't believe Christmas is less than a week away! I still have to finish my Christmas shopping and wrap presents. I'm sure I'm not the only one in that boat.

For this mani I used OPI GelColor Venice the Party and stamped using MoYou London Festive 30 in Essie Good as Gold. Middle finger has OPI GelColor Baroque...But Still Shopping. People hate this polish in regular nail polish, but in gel I actually quite like it!

OPI Be There in a Prosecco & MoYou London Holy Shapes 05

Hi loves! Quick post today. Here's a mani I did back in October. I actually did it first in gel and it didn't come out perfectly so I did it again with regular nail polish. I used OPI Be There in a Prosecco and stamped using MoYou London Holy Shapes 05 in Mundo de Unas Bronze.

Madam Glam--Silver Magic & Gold Digger Swatches

Good morning beauties! December feels like it's flying by. I have to finish my (online) Christmas shopping soon! Today I have 2 gel polishes from Madam Glam to share with you.

Silver Magic

Gold Digger

Silver Magic reminds me of China Glaze Glistening Snow--a perfect silver microglitter for an accent nail. If you're looking for one like that for your gel polish collection, Silver Magic would be the perfect addition. Gold Digger has a ton of tiny yellow gold flakies and not a glitter texture. This polish was beautiful too, but I'd probably use this one as an accent nail as well. Both polishes have great coverage. You can purchase these polishes here for $19.95 each.
