Neutral and green skittlette manicure

Happy December everyone! I love this time of year – not for the snowy weather, but I just adore picking out presents for people. And it definitely doesn’t suck to receive presents either 😉 ! Today I have a mani with a little bit o’ everything for you. There’s holo, metallic, neutrals, a gradient, dotting, and stamping!

My sampler manicure

I really love this one! It’s a bit of a sampler of everything, but I think it goes well together. Here’s another pic:

And that holo!

I LOVE love love that green holo! It’s much more of an evergreen in real life, but my camera really wanted to make it look turquoise. Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer just restocked this polish (it’s called Mickey Smith, Defending the Earth – part of the Gents of Doctor Who collection) yesterday, and this will be the last restock for awhile!! So if you like it, go pick it up ASAP! Oh, and there’s a 25% off Cyber Monday sale today (check out the BEGL Facebook page for more details) – all the more reason to go now!

Products used:

  • Index finger and thumb: BEGL Mickey Smith, Defending the Earth
  • Middle and ring fingers:

    • Gradient: OPI My Vampire is Buff, Essie Mink Muffs (a medium brown creme), and Essie Partner in Crime (a perfect almost black dark chocolate creme)

So what do you think? Do you like to mix and match manis as much as I do? Will you be heading over to BEGL to pick up that awesome green holo or any of the other Doctor Who polishes?

Love stamping!

I got a new set of stamping plates recently and am in LOVE! Bundle Monster’s Create Your Own plates are amazing. The designs are unique and vary from simple patterns to themed (there’s a nintendo controller, owl, blood spatter, Valentine’s Day, etc).

The above manicure has Essie Mink Muffs as the base color and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue-Away as the stamping color. I used my Bundle Monster plate, BM-407 for the stamp.

I also finally received a few Konad plates in the mail. I just have to say – if you want Konad plates, order them from Amazon if they’re available! I ordered straight from the Konad website and it took FOREVER for them to arrive. It was almost 3 weeks before I received my order. They must ship from the North Pole or something. Even so, I’m excited to try the new plates. The stamps seem a bit thinner than my Bundle Monster or Gals, so we’ll see if it fits on my nails. More later!
