Lion Around

... I love the bow! :)

I have a very uncharacteristically girly manicure for you today. After using the bow from my lightinthebox stamping plate for my cousin's nails, I just had to incorporate it into a manicure for myself.

Essie I'm not Lion (My mistake, it's Lion Around) came in the mail just the other day as part of a boxing day sale on Nail Polish Canada so I've been eager to try it out. Although I have a significant number of pink polishes in my collection, I don't tend to wear the color often... This one is gorgeous! :)

It made me think of a sort-of vintage look so I decided to stamp the white polka dots to go with the bow. Along with my haul from Nail Polish Canada I picked up black and white konad special polishes, and I have to say they make a world of difference when stamping.

It's hard to tell but I actually stamped a white bow first, but it wasn't showing up as much as I'd hoped so I decided to stamp it with black after.

That's all for today! Don't forget to check out my giveaway and nail art contest that are running right now :)
