As mentioned above this is one coat of Cult Nails Flushed over one coat of Time Traveller, no top coat.

Presents! Once again inspired by the Nailasaurus (seriously need to stop being such a copy cat now).
I used Jordana Ruby Slippers as my basecoat for my new Cult Nails Bitten. Then I stamped the ribbon bow from BM-317 using special black stamping polish from bornprettystore.com then added ribbons using Jordana Black. I painted a thin inside line of the black lines using a new pier 1 imports polish Platinum Spark. And topped it all off with Seche Vite.

And one of my aunts got me these three lovely colors from Pier1Imports among a few other goodies :)

I have really been relaxing and enjoying the holidays at my parents house. My mom, sister and I went skating on the lake and my grandmother is visiting for a few days.. it is a much needed vacation from the chaos of work/school. I still have a few manicure ideas I will be working on over the next few days and I have been racking my brain for new years ideas.... stay tuned!

Today I have a cute manicure to show you that I wore to a party last week... I took pictures the next morning but this week was so crazy with work and christmas shopping I just kept forgetting to upload and actually post about them. (again, bad blogger)
Better late than never...
I wore a blue striped shirt to the party and wanted to match my nails as much as possible. When I found this design on pinterest I just fell in love with it so I decided to recreate it despite having much shorter nails....
I started with a clear basecoat, then painted a thick stripe of NYX Ink (navy blue) diagonally on my nail. Second I painted the Jordana Silver Glitter in a V shape. Third was Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Calypso Blue in a cloud-like pattern in an opposite diagonal to the navy blue. And I topped it off with Jordana French White Manicure and used a nail art brush and dotting tool for the detail.
Had to use a few coats of Seche Vite on this one to flatten the many layers of polish out.
And... I can always save a christmas design or two for next year (since we lived through the apocalypse and all). Happy Holidays to you and yours... my next post will be from my parents cozy home/cottage in central NL :D
