Twinsie Thursday - Christmas Stamping!

Merry Christmas, lacquer lovers!

This Twinsie Thursday's theme is Christmas! Lothwen was kind enough to send me some stamping plates a few weeks ago and one of them was a Christmas themed plate! There was one design in particular I loved: a vintage looking Santa!

For this look, I started off with two coats of my favorite red: OPI Red My Fortune Cookie! Then, using Rimmel London Black Satin and Born Pretty Store Plate 01 I stamped on the Santa faces. 

I am in love with this look! It is festive and intricate, yet very simple!

I haven't seen Lothwen's post yet, but I sure her nails look awesome because they always do. ;)

I hope everyone has a great day, no matter what holiday you celebrate!
I'll be back for another Twinsie Thursday next year! How weird does that sound?

Samantha, I love it! This super cute Santa looks great on your nails! I look forward to our swapping posts next year :D Happy happy holidays everybody!

Loki's Nail Vinyls - Clouds

Hello lovelies!

Happy ManiMonday ;) On this happy day, I kick start a week of Loki's Nail Vinyls! I'm starting off with these cute cloud vinyls, that I transformed into a mani that did not resemble the weather of the day. No, no, the day was one big cloud that ooooozed rain, so I just stared at my nails all day, instead of the window ;)

Hello lovelies!

Another pretty from Incidental Twin Nail Polish today! I already showed you "Full Moon on Friday" and "Blurry Demon", and today I have the last one for you: "Rosette Nebula", named after one of the most beautiful celestial objects within our Milky Way - a nebula around a cluster of stars that have formed within it. I tried recreating it on my accent nail...

Incidental Twin "Full Moon on Friday"

Hi lovelies!

I present you a new-to-me indie: Incidental Twin Nail Polish! Today I will show you "Full Moon on Friday", inspired by the last full moon that happened on Friday the 13th, which is, as a full moon, enchantingly beautiful:

Now this is even more beautiful IRL than I was able to photograph! The metallic shimmer shifts from blue to purple and the silver hexes in all sizes, they sparkle like heavenly bodies. 

This is three thin coats with top coat. The biggest hexes require some fishing. I stamped a howling wolf on my middle finger and painted a silver moon, with glare. I also made a gradient background sky, with a bit of jelly purple polish.  The stamping plate I used is a new one from (10% discount with coupon code SXDQ10!), that I bought. It's so cool! 

Isn't this polish magical? Incidental Twin Nail polish can be purchased in her etsy shop, and don't forget to show her facebook, twitter and instagram some love ;)

Friends on Friday - Owls

Hello lovelies!

I did one of my friends nails again, this time inspired by a wrapping paper in which had been a present she had gotten me recently:

I don't remember all the polishes I used, there were a lot. I just sort of freehanded everything.

That was fun! I'm holding on to the wrapping paper, because I want to do my own nails like this too, lol!

Ms Sparkle Playtime Collection - Akira

Hello lovelies!
As promised, I present you "Akira", the second polish in this collection that Simone named after me <3 Click here to see "Lothwen" Akira is amazeballs, check it out:

"Akira" is a glitter topper with black and platinum leopard spots, yellow stars, neon green blacklight reactive hexes, purple micro glitter and big holo circles... It's an 80's party in a bottle and it's one of the most fun toppers I own, if not THE most fun!

I applied two coats of Akira over a white to purple gradient base. The black leopards did not require much fishing, the platinum ones however did, so weird! But that's a minor detail with a deliciously awesome payoff like this ;)
Ms. Sparkle "Lothwen" is part of the new "Playtime" collection and will be in the shop tonight!

What do you think of this polish and the leopard spot glitter in general? Do you like it better in a topper or in a crelly like "Lothwen"?
