December Nails 2012 Theme 10: Water Marble

Hey Lovelies.

Remember when I left one theme open for you guys?

Personally I love the result. The colours really work nice together and I love that each finger is unique.
Let me know what you think!

December Nails 2012 Theme 9: Inspired by Gift Wrap


So this was so supposed to be posted a few days ago 
but I was having some issues with my photos so it got delayed. 
In any case, here's theme nine. 
I had it on for Christmas dinner (times 2) plus one day. 
I was quite pleased with this in person but I have to admit 
I was sort of annoyed with the black polish I have. 
It seems it has reached it's expiration date and was chipping way too easy. 
However, the overall glimmer still did it for me.

December Nails 2012 Theme 5: Holiday Gradient

Hello lovelies.

So I know I've been a very bad blogger and I take full responsibility for my absence.
& as a reward for your patience you will be getting blog posts 3 days in a row!!

So here is my holiday gradient. 
For some reason the camera was just not doing these nails any justice. 
They were uber sparkly and fun in reality I swear.

You may have also noticed that I skipped theme 4... 
it was a mistake, I just completely forgot to look at my 
calendar and as a result I missed it. But I'm going to try 
and squeeze it in somewhere. More to come on that.

Any who here they are. Comment if you like and follow me! :)

December Nails 2012 Theme 3: Inspired by a Holiday Story

 Here we go, theme 3.
I was torn between a few different stories 
but I decided to stick with a classic: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
I've seen different interpretations of this one but I wanted to 
put my own spin on it so I decided to do both Rudolph and his cute little girlfriend. 
Let me know what you think!

December Nails Theme 1: Inspired by Snowflakes

Hello friends.

So I'm a a day late posting, but here they are.
The photo doesn't really do justice to how duochromtastic Bonjour Paris 
is but trust me, it sparkles and it radiates 
from a deep purple to this beautiful ambery colour. 
Definitely in love. 
One tip though, I did three layers for it to come out the same as the colour 
in the bottle so my recommendation would be to put some sort of 
base colour underneath (especially black). 
But it any case I really like how it all turned out. Let me know what you think. 
Also, still taking any suggestions for the tenth category which won't 
be decided until a week before, so feel free to leave a comment. 

P.S. There's also a little bonus at the end for you to check out.

Products Used:
Revlon top and base coat
Base colour: Enchanted Polish - Bonjour Paris
Snowflakes: Maybelline Color Show - Bold Gold
Konad Stamper- Plate BM319

One of my closest friends had her birthday the same day as this post was supposed to be sent out 
(which is part of the reason this is late) but I just wanted to guest spot her manicure so you can see another Enchanted Polish on a base boat. THIS WAS ONE COAT!! So heed my advice and use a base colour.
