Happy new year!!!

This is my mani to ring in the new year!!
Somehow all I can focus on these days is Glitter and Shimmer and Bling!! Do you?
So I came up with this blingy number to brighten up my year.

The Base is a Miss Claire shade  E135. Its a Rose gold in foil.
Its a very pretty vibrant color. Miss Claire is a Korean brand and they claim this is a "one stroke polish" which I bought in the first place to check if it would stamp well. Nope it doesn't. I had to apply 2 coats to make it completely opaque.
Rose Gold is also one of my fav shades this season. I am searching for a watch in the same tone..any suggestions?

Stamped with Konad Black
Plates: XL B
I did manage to squish the stamp a bit on my lil finger..But it doesn't show at a normal length.
I chose this mesh kinda design as I wanted the base to show through.
I think it'll go well with a grey-black dress that I am wearing for new year's eve and accentuate with minimal accessories in rose gold.

I like'd to wish you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
May you all have a fantastic year ahead!
I also want you to know that I really appreciate your support for my blog!
Starting this blog has given me the much desired creative outlet in my life!!
A BIG thank you!!

What did you do this weekend? I went out of town to a hill station nearby that grows strawberries!! :D
And the best thing there is Strawberries with cream. (Yum Yum! nom nom!). Enough drooling now!!
Coming back to Sapphire. On my nails today I am showing you Sally Hansen's Sturdy Sapphire. It is a very vibrant shimmering blue bordering on the tones of violet. 

The colour is sheer and a required 4 coats to build up. And I can still see a VNL (visible nail line).

Stamping plate: M76 (faux)
Stamping Colour: Konad Black
I added a few dots in silver for highlights.

How did you like this??
Stay posted: Coming up soon..My first ever Christmas Mani!

Green With Envy

Hola Chickas! 

Envy!! Hmm..thats something we all feel from time to time. Envy of full blown solitaire on your neighbors finger, a new polish that your favorite blogger gets her hands on; of a job promotion you thought you deserved. (Ahem..Well that would be screaming mad!!)
Today I am showing you a polish from Sinful colors: Envy.
This one if from my Canadian Haul and the first Sinful color np that I've have.
Its a bright warm green, and I was looking forward to try this particular shade even though green is not a color I am fond of. It applies smooth, has a nice bright undertone. 

The problem with this green was I could not find find any stamping colour that would show up on this.
I tried white, silver but they didn't work well. So then I layered this with a shimmering green polish (green gold shimmer in transparent jelly base) and the color turned to a brilliant shimmering green. Although it was not as bright as what the pic shows below, but I had to photograph it using flash as my camera refused to pick up the subtle hint of shimmer. 

Finally stamped it using M78 (fauxnad)  with Konad's special black.

How do you like it?
