Time Well Spent...

Hi Everyone! I mentioned yesterday that I took last week off to get a bit of rest. I actually only painted my nails once during that time and I have to admit it was quite refreshing. I was only slightly tempted to catch up on swatching, but I resisted the urge. Instead, I spent time with family and friends. I even did a few manicures for my friends who visited. They each picked out the polishes and stamping images for their manicures.

My apologies in advance for the poor photo quality, but these were rushed and I must confess that I'm not very good at taking photos of other people's hands. Colors are not absolutely accurate.

Base is Zoya Dream
Stamping with Essence Stamp Me! White using Bundle Monster BM-H01 (snowflakes), Winstonia W120 (snowflakes), Cheeky Jumbo plate L (tree)
Snowman decal from Cheeky Jumbo plate L using Essence Stamp Me! Black and acrylic paints
Snow at the tips using Wet 'n Wild French White Creme and unnamed glitter.

All nails except for ring fingers using Barielle Very Bare. Ring fingers are OPI Chic From Ears to Tail topped with Essie A Cut Above.
Green stamping polish: Color Club Wild Cactus
Pink stamping polish: Nicole by OPI Still Into Pink
Robot from Bundle Monster plate BM-415, remainder of the images stamped from BM-423

Base is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Greige Gardens stamped with Pure Ice Silver Mercedes using Bundle Monster plate BM-323

Base is Color Secrets My Fair Lady stamped with Maybelline Bold Gold (70) using MoYou London plate Pro Collection 06

Thanks for looking!

  1. very cute mani's! I adore the first one!

  2. They are all great, especially love the Zoya Dream one, though. I think that needs to be my next mani. I wore Payton from same collection for Tgiving. Currently I am sporting red and green texture (NOPI Gumdrops) on my fingers and gold texture (Julie G) on my thumbs. Just to do the Christmas colors thing, even though I much prefer blue/silver/white....

  3. Very nice! Both for you to have a break (the good kind) and to have a nice time with friends and their nails. They all came out super - even the photos!

  4. Gorgeous manis. Festive yet wearable, which I like.

  5. @Phoebe Moon, I'm glad you like it! She wanted it to look like all different kinds of wrapping paper :)

    @Jordan, thank you so much! I'm tempted to recreate that one for myself as well :)

    @Arathael, Thank you! You should definitely try this out! Red and green texture sounds wonderful too! :)

    @La gazelle nails, thank you very much! :)

    @Kimett Kolor, thank you very much! It was a lovely time and something we've been meaning to do for a while. I enjoyed it very much :)

    @marox79, thank you! I'm so glad you like them :)

  6. I simply love the last manicure! :-)

  7. @Raggio di Luna, thank you so much sweetie! I love the purple and gold combo too :)

  8. @Fingers, thank you so much! I'm glad you like them :)
