Intriguing Geometry

Some of you may be familiar with the Google Hangouts that Maria from Cult Nails has put off. She's had two so far. Basically Maria gets together with a few of her favourite bloggers and puts off a live hangout where they chat about nails, show us new products, do a tutorial, and even give away a few goodies... and anyone can tune in to watch and chat or tweet questions that the bloggers will answer. :) It's really quite fun. 

So last wednesday, on the eve of my final exam, she hosted one and I of course took the first opportunity to procrastinate and tuned in! :) 

Maria was joined by Refined and Polished and Nail Vinyls and even Marta from Chit Chat Nails for a short while. Lakeisha from R&P used the new Cult Nails Casual Elegance collection and showed us a few techniques using the Nail Vinyls. Linda from Nail Vinyls offered up a limited-time coupon to use on her website, and Maria gave away one Casual Elegance and one It's A New Day collection. 

All while this was happening, I was putting together this manicure for you all, and if you follow my instagram you would've seen this already...

Since my Nail Vinyls sample had already been used when I first got my Casual Elegance collection in the mail (see design here), I decided to do a simple stamping manicure.

I started with a base of Cult Nails Intriguing on my thumb, index, and middle finger. And Cult Nails Fetish (wax black) on my other nails. I stuck the Born Pretty Store studs on using rhinestone glue and stamped the geometric design from BM-320.

I took advantage of the coupon from Nail Vinyls and ordered a mixed set. AANNDD... I was the lucky winner of the It's A New Day collection and stamping plate!! :D So I am super super excited and waiting for that to arrive in the mail :)

If you're interested in future hangouts, keep an eye on the Cult Nails Facebook page for deets! :)
