HPB Presents: NYE Countdown

This is my last mani for 2015 - I'm excited that I get to look forward to 2016 and get more of my design ideas out of my head and onto my nails! HPB is still doing winter/festive designs so I'm getting one more done! I really enjoy participating in these monthly link ups and hope they continue next year :)

To be honest, I wasn't too enthused about doing a NYE mani. This has been an exhausting week and I'm just looking forward to having Friday off! But I did manage to get one last mani in before the year ends, so I hope it's somewhat festive!

HPB Presents: Poinsettias

I'm feeling ambitious and going for another post for HPB winter/festive theme! This time with a more floral approach, using a traditional color scheme.

They're not actually poinsettias but I think I get get away with it because white, red and green make them look so festive, right?

Stamping Saturday & HPB Presents: Holiday Nails

I think I'm so full of holiday design ideas that I'm getting anxious I won't be able to get them all done before the holidays pass! Today I have a 2 in 1 kind of post, Stamping Saturday and HPB, as well as 2 designs based on one polish!

Swatch & Art: Sinful Colors - Navy I Do

I'm still seeing a lot of sweater prints so I wanted to make another one! 
Sweater print is from Moyou London Festive 06, stamped with MdU Fiji

Then I thought...sweaters aren't shiny, right? And the matte ones I've seen were so pretty and had a more realistic look to them..but I think I prefer mine shiny. Maybe it's just the matte coat I used (NYC Matte me Crazy) but the navy all of a sudden looked much bluer and brighter. 
Base color is Sinful Colors Navy I Do, and it's pretty much a one coater. I did use 2 for even coverage.

Swatch & Art: Lacquistry - REDiculous

A lot of holiday designs are fighting to get onto my nails so this is going to be an attempt at getting several done!The star of these manies is REDiculous from Lacquisty.

Check out the polish solo & with festive nail art after the break! For 30 Days of Colour I have "Candy Canes" and "Ugly Sweater" which I did over the weekend, so that's also fitting for Stamping Saturday, right? :)
