Black And White Candy Cane Nails

Hey everyone! 🙂

Black and White Candy Cane Nail Art

I have to admit that I’m feeling so incredibly un-festive, I have been trying to create christmasy nails but it’s just not working…

I think I’m going to stick with winter nails for now 🙂

Black and White Candy Cane Nail Art

This is a base of Snow Me White from Sinful Colors, with a coat of China Glaze Make A Spectacle.

The tape decided that it didn’t want to play nice, it kept curling up at the edges, and generally not sticking to the polish, in hindsight I should have added a layer of topcoat over the glitter… :/

Then I added a coat of Camelot from A England and removed the tape, then added my topcoat to smooth it all.

GLITTER!

I decided to try out a new (to me) technique for this mani. The technique is called Smoosh Attack (amazing name!) and you can find a pictorial tutorial right here Smoosh Attack.

Over a coat of Snow Me White I Smooshed a mixture of Blue Streak, Orchid Express, Moonstone and a a little bit more white polish.

When it was dry I added the glitter polishes Make a Spectacle and Flash Cosmic.

Then I applied a coat of Seche Vite to smooth out the glitter.

Messy Mansion MM21

I used Stamping Plate MM21 From Messy Mansion, I was going for an angled gradient with the scales, but that turned out to be a lot more tricky than I was expecting. But this looks much better than how I pictured when I was planning it. 😀

For the stamping I used Konad Special Polish in Black and Moonstone.

Then I added a final coat of Seche Vite.

Happy Skulls!

Hello! 🙂

Happy Glitter Skulls

Happy Glitter Skulls

These little skulls definitely look happy or at least very pleased with themselves! 🙂

I started out with a white base for this I used Ivory Skull from Sally Hansen, then I added a couple of coats of Make a Spectacle from China Glaze. This polish has to be one of my favorite iridescent glitters, it’s made up of medium small and micro glitter in a clear base. So pretty! 🙂

I stamped with Konad Special Polish in Black using the skull image from Messy Mansion MM22. and you can find that right here!  Messy Mansion MM22
