Pink Flowers!

I was really looking forward to using a couple of the Models Own Chrome polishes I got to stamp with, and they did not disappoint. I have used one of them here for the stamping. Also, I really wanted to try out the floral image on the BP 54 plate - I haven't used such a large floral image before and it looks very unusual and eye-catching, I think.

Colourful Leadlight Stamping Manicure

I got some of these Born Pretty Stamping plates specifically for Leadlight manicures, where you colour in the stamping with other polishes for a colourful end result. This is just one such manicure.
I have used a very pretty white polish with a gold shimmer for the base and the pink and blue polishes also have fine glitter in them. I don't know if my photos do justice to this shimmery gorgeousness but I did so enjoy wearing these nails!

Chrysanthemums - Floral Stamping Nail Art

I got this Messy Mansions Leadlight Lacquer stamping plate A05 mostly for this image - it reminds me so much of the gorgeous chrysanthemums that my mum used to grow when I was a child! I love how the colours of this manicure turned out too.

Valentine's Day Manicures

The last Valentine's Day manicures for the year ... and since I'm late in posting, I have two instead of one!
First up, is a pond manicure, where stamping images are sandwiched between layers of jelly (translucent) nail polish.

Love is in the air!

I have one more Valentine's Day manicure for you today. Just a little scene set at dusk with two people in love, meeting at the end of the day for an evening together.

Blowing Kisses!

I love those "girl blowing dandelion" manicures and have wanted to try one for a while. But since its close to Valentine's Day I thought I would do hearts instead of dandelions. I didn't have a stamping plate with the face though so I thought I would try my hand at painting mine freehand. It is much trickier to paint the silhouette of a face on your nail than on paper, let me tell you! This is how it turned out ...
