Madam Glam Caribbean Island and stamping

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.

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.

Pretty Serious Pookie and stamping

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!

Autumn 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 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.
