Winter Hummingbird...

Hi Everyone! Today I have another manicure to share with you which has been patiently waiting for it's time in the spotlight since last month. I was tempted to wait even longer and post this in the Spring when a floral manicure would be more appropriate, but considering that I wore this for almost a week in December, it seems that I'm not too concerned with seasonal appropriateness. Hope you don't mind seeing seeing this flowery mani here today. Maybe you're already dreaming of Spring and warmer weather?...


This manicure features a beautiful pink holo base from 365 Days of Color named SANTA!! OH MY GOD!! That's right! I'm sure Santa loves hummingbirds and flowers too ;)


I stamped using MoYou London stamping plate Pro 13 with KleanColor Black...


The whole manicure is stamped using just this single XL 'full nail' image. It is obviously too large to fit entirely on my nail, but this gave me the perfect opportunity to rotate it and pick areas to stamp to make each nail look different. This is precisely why I love when the XL images feature small enough details to work for all nail sizes...


Using a small brush, I filled in the flowers with OPI You Only Live Twice, a gorgeous red with a fleck shimmer. The larger flower got an accent of a few gold bullion beads...



I hope you enjoyed this manicure!

Thanks for looking!
Anutka :)

    1. Oh boy! It is definitely too early for mardi gras! Although it happens so often that my manicure is not season/weather appropriate! LOL :)
