Happy Pi Day!

For Pi Day I stamped over A England Whispering  Waves using Hehe plate Hehe-053 and Colour Alike “a Venus”. Only had time to do a couple of nails with the Pi-themed stamping plate…

   
    

  
 

Here is Whispering Waves on its own; two coats plus top coat. 

   
 

Happy Pi Day!

Milani Digital

Quick post to show my nails of the past couple days! This is Milani Digital, one of their old scattered holos. I used three coats plus top coat. First three pics under Ott lite, last one with flash. 

   
     

Happy Year of the Monkey!

I’m posting a bit late but here are the nails I did for the Lunar New Year!

   

The red is Picture Polish Arabian and the stamping is from Hehe plate 042 using Kleancolor Metallic Yellow. First two photos in shade.

The holo still doesn’t show very well in these pics but it’s there amongst all those glass flecks!

  

I used two coats of Arabian plus top coat. It has a great formula. 

  

Love this stamping plate! Happy New Year to everyone celebrating🙂

 

Picture Polish Imperial 

Picture Polish Imperial is a bright purple creme-based polish with tons of shimmer, especially blue glass-fleck shimmer, and small pale gold hex glitter. The glitter sometimes gives off more of a rose-gold look when it’s shining through the purple base. I used two coats of Imperial, plus top coat.

Zoya Isa is a great blue-toned purple with blue-to-pink duochrome glass flecks. Zoya Aphrodite is a red jelly with pink-to-gold glass flecks. I used two coats of Isa and three of Aphrodite.

I added stamping on Aphrodite using LA Girl Millennium and an image from Pueen Fancy Lover 01.

  

  

 

Just a quick post to share my favourite neon purple, That’s Shore Bright by China Glaze! Being a neon purple, it’s hard to photograph accurately. I had to use my phone because it’s much more accurate for certain shades of purple and blue than my camera is! The first photos are under Ott Lite. 

   
 

I used three coats of polish plus top coat here. The next photos are under halogen light. 

   
 

Happy New Year! This beautiful, bright blue polish is Pookie from the Pretty Serious Well Meaning But Ultimately Quite Awkward Pet Names collection!

Two coats plus top coat, great formula! Love this unique shade of turquoise blue!

Now, Pookie is one of the nicknames  of my cat Possum – actually, The Lady-Pookie is her full nickname. Because Pookie was a nickname of one of my parents’ cats (may he rest in peace) who was an orange tabby, and Possum is also an orange tabby but a female orange tabby.  I tried to take a “my nails and my cat” pic here but she wasn’t too thrilled with the flash!

I stamped over Pookie using Kleancolor Metallic Orange and these cute little roly-poly cats that remind me of Possum, from Hehe plate Hehe-023!

Here’s Possum still at the top of that cat tree, still not looking too thrilled!

Sometimes she likes to roll around on the floor and show off her super fluffy belly!
