Stamping Nail: Christmas!





It's starting to feel a lot like Christmas! And how very excited I am!

You might notice that this picture is of my right hand.  Now, I have a left-handed camera and no tripod, so you can appreciate how difficult a capture this was!  I remember now why I ventured from square to squoval nails... I've chipped the corners off two of my left hand nails.  Two!  Le sigh.  Perhaps it's time for squoval again?

I used a few polishes for this look, but I prepped everything with a coat of Essie Grow Faster.  Not sure I'm loving this base coat, I think I prefer OPI's Nail Envy?  The red is essence - a hint of love, and I used three thin coats for full opacity.  The green is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Emerald City.  It's an old polish, as far as I'm aware, but I drag it out every Christmas as it's the perfect holly green!

I stamped from plate BP-01 from bornprettystore.com in Mundo De Unas 7 - Dark Green for the trees and Ulta3 Lily White from their sheer tints collection.  I ended up painting over the white of the design with Lily White and a small nail art brush.  The gold is Mundo De Unas 19 - Bronze, which I've always thought looks very gold on the nail.  You can see another example in this post here!

As per usual, it's all topped with a coat of Glisten&Glow HK Girl.

Is it beginning to feel like Christmas where you are?  What's on your nails today?
