Peppermint Swirl Nails

I've seen this look floating around Nailand quite a bit lately, and I haven't fallen in love with it as it seems a lot of people have. I figured I needed to try it out and see it on myself in person, though, before making a final judgement. I am talking about the two-tone drag marble swirl. I did mine in white and red, just for a little pepperminty festiveness, accented with a swirly stamp.

Christmas Deer

For my second stamped Christmas design using Born Pretty Store plates, I started by stamping a star-like image from BP-09 using Sally Hansen Rapid Red and Mint Sprint, then layered snowflakes from BP-01 on top. The deer are also from BP-01, and I added a snowy landscape with China Glaze There's Snow One Like You.

Christmas Forest - Stamped Nails

Considering the name of this polish, I'm pretty such I'm on the opposite end of the thermometer here, but I grabbed it from my untrieds and it looked like a perfect winter polish! This is three coats of Polish Me to Go Summer Lights. I just love how the black bits and the iridescent glitters play together in this. It's got a chilly and dark feel to it. I am absolutely in love!

New Born Pretty Store Stamping Plates: An Overview

I received 12 of Born Pretty Store's new stamping plates (BP-01 - BP-10) to play with, and review. I have created a bunch of manicures using them, including some holiday manis. So I wanted to first share a quick overview of the plates I got.
