This turquoise beauty is Madam Glam Caribbean Island, one of their regular nail polishes. It’s similar to China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle but a little bit lighter.
Two coats with top coat, in shade:
I stamped using Colour Alike “b. a Fairy Forest” and “b. a Sunshine” and designs from Born Pretty plate BP-L015.
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!
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 🙂
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.
Under Ott lite:
I added stamping on Aphrodite using LA Girl Millennium and an image from Pueen Fancy Lover 01.
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!
Today I have A England Cathy and Jane Morris to show you. Cathy is a pale grey with a lavender tone, subtle holo, and blue shimmer flecks. Jane Morris is a charcoal grey holo with blue-to-purple glass fleck shimmer.
I used two coats each plus top coat. Jane Morris is almost a one-coater. Both have great formulas! I stamped a crane on Cathy using Jane Morris and Hehe plate Hehe-048.
Under halogen light, to bring out the purple side of the shimmer in Jane Morris:
Zoya Gretchen is a nude-ish brownish dusty rose kind of colour that I applied here in two coats (plus top coat). The accent nail is two coats of Femme Fatale Heart’s Desires, a very unique mauve-ish dusty rose base filled with red-gold-green flakies and tiny red holo microglitter sparks. Photos with flash.
The next day I added two coats of Heart’s Desires overtop of Gretchen and stamped on the accent nail using Kleancolor Metallic Green and an image from Hehe-024. The combo of Heart’s Desires plus green made the accent nail look kind of orange overall!
Here’s the reason I bought Zoya Gretchen – former feral kitty Gretchen! She’s a torbie (brown tabby with some orange tabby patches), although it doesn’t really show in these photos.
Gretchen actually doesn’t really get along very well with a lot of the cats, but there are a few she likes. Here she is cuddled up and spooning with Tex! <3<3<3
Today I have two polishes with “time” in the name to show you. Pretty and Polished Thyme and Time Again is from the dusty creme collection which all have tiny grey speckles throughout. Indigo Bananas Olive Time and Space is a dark olive green from their Fall 2015 holo collection.
I used two coats plus top coat for each polish. All photos are with flash.
I added some (almost invisible) stamping on Thyme and Time Again using Olive Time and Space to stamp and an image of an asparagus tip from MoYou London plate Cookbook 14. Love the asparagus image! But should have used colours that contrast better! Ah well, nice and subtle and helps to hide the crooked stamping. 😉
I had better share this fall-themed manicure before the snow flies, which fortunately hasn’t happened yet here!
The base for this mani was Emily de Molly Copper Patina and Femme Fatale Infamous Riddle.
Copper Patina is a turquoise creme with pink-to-gold duochrome shimmer. I used two coats plus top coat.
Infamous Riddle is an olive-leaning green jelly with strong red-to-gold duochrome shimmer. I used three coats plus top coat for this one.
I really love both of these polishes!
I stamped fall leaves and trees on them using Kleancolor’s Metallic Orange, Metallic Mango, and Metallic Brown.
The plates used were Bundle Monster BM-04, Hehe 048, and Born Pretty BPL-015 for the tree.
So happy with how these turned out! Here are approximately a zillion more photos, heheh. 😉
Here are two gorgeous Picture Polishes, New York and Ornate!
New York is a rich rose pink scattered holo and Ornate is a plum purple scattered holo with medium golden hex glitter and small fuchsia glitter.
I stamped them with Colour Alike A Juicy Tangerine and an image from It Girl plate 103.
Here’s a picture including the plate… which I hadn’t cleaned off yet. Love the It Girl plates!
