Hanukkah Sparkles!

Hi Lovelies! Today I have another Hanukkah manicure to share with you. I don't usually get the chance to create multiple manicures for the occasion, but I got an idea that I just had to try out. Waiting until next year was not an option that I could live with, so time had to be made for the time consuming endeavor. I've been wearing this for the past couple of days and I hope it will last me at least through the weekend because I can't stop staring at them. I'm actually having a difficult time writing this post since I keep getting distracted by the nail...

Happy Hanukkah!

Hi Everyone! I want to wish a Happy Hanukkah to all of you lovelies who celebrate the holiday! This year I created two manicures to celebrate, the first of which I would like to show you today.

I'm always slightly jealous of the abundance of Christmas holiday stamping patterns available. Although I do make good use of those said patterns (so I won't complain too much), I wish more companies would create patterns to celebrate other cultures, traditions and beliefs. There is always a part of me that gets super excited when I see a pattern that I can use for a Hanukkah manicure. So queue the excitement and a dizzying game of dreidel...

Gold Foiled

Hi Lovelies! Early last year I had attempted to franken my own gold leaf top coat which didn't quite work out as planned (see my franken gone wrong post here). What I was left with was a bunch of gold leaf sheets and some 'real' gold leaf flakes that I purchased for a 2nd mini-trial. Until now the flakes have sat unloved next to the rest of my nail decorations. I finally got the inspiration to use them! Why you might ask? That's right because as I might have mentioned a billion and one times, in my world purple and gold belong together...

Whimsical Winter Scene!

Almost three weeks ago Marta of Chit Chat Nails announced a nail art contest that she is hosting with a stamping plate maker Pueen. I was instantly intrigued because it features two of my favorite things, stamping and holiday nail art. I rarely enter contests, partly for lack of time, but largely because I disagree with the 'judging' process. Marta's contest, however, has actual judges which makes the process about talent rather than popularity. For me that makes the contest a challenge and I love challenges...

I've been thinking about what I want to create for the contest for the past couple of weeks and have been coming up blank. I knew I wouldn't be entering the contest unless it was something I was really proud of, so that I wouldn't kick myself later and think "I could have done better". That way loosing would mean someone created nail art that is better or more creative than mine, not because I didn't give it my best shot. Also, win or loose, I had a blast creating this manicure and at the end of the day that is what really matters to me...

Hi Lovelies! I've got another manicure with one of the Dance Legend HoloDays shades to show you today! The manicure was inspired by the leafy polish color itself...

Snowflakes Again!

Hi Lovelies! Well it has been exactly a week since I showed you my last snowflake manicure, so one could say I'm way overdue. Although just to set the record straight, I wore them more than a month apart and I'm just a slow blogger. Hanging my head in shame over here. I kid of course, but I do love snowflakes and will pretty much take any opportunity these next few months to wear them on my nails. Consider yourselves warned, you'll likely see more, but I do hope you enjoy them as much as I do...
