Nailz Craze Stamping with OPI Skyfall

A simple manicure to end the year! I recently got a few stamping plates from Nailz Craze and I just love these little nesting dolls on plate NC03. It looks like they have sold out now on Natalie's etsy page, but hopefully they will be restocked.

I used OPI Skyfall for the base color, and actually used OPI Skyfall mixed with Wet n Wild French White Creme for the stamping color! I just put a few drops of white on a piece of card stock, then added a drop of  Skyfall and mixed it together with a toothpick. It was enough to make the two accent nails on this mani and created a perfect complimentary stamping color. 

Here is another image from the same plate. I love the clean lines of this image, and it is a much bigger image than other plates like Konad and Bundle monster, so the design really covered the whole nail. :D

Have a wonderful New Year celebration! See you in 2013.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Nails

Hi all! It's been a busy holiday season, sorry to have neglected the ol bloggy blog. Here are some nails I did yesterday. The base is OPI Comet Loves Cupid, and then I used Konad Special White Stamping Polish to make the designs. My sister got me the Konad Gold Stamping set last year and I totally love it!

I used the following plates to make these designs: bm225, bm319, bm214, m16, and bm316. I found that a lighter hand worked better when trying to lift the deer and ornament images. Otherwise you end up pushing the polish out of the plate.

Merry Christmas!!
