Nail Look for Holidays: wintery stamping


Hi Dears! How are you doing today? Today I'd like to share with you another winter/holiday nail look related to the Season's party. I had a little ray of sunlight coming through my window so I took a gazillion pictures, so be patient, lol!




Here is what I've used:

-China Glaze Frosty, as my base colour
- Butter London Victoriana, as an accent on my ring finger nails
- Maybelline 835 Metal Me Teal! for stamping
- Maybelline 820 Winner takes it all! For stamping and French tips
- Sèche vite
- Snow crystal Fimo (already sliced, purchased from Claire's)
- Golden Foil metal snow crystal from Born Pretty store (I find this gorgeous!!)

 Here below is my right hand with fimo slice on the ring finger.


And some closeups to both of my hands:


Ok, I had warned you there were many pictures! lol!
So, let me know your thoughts about this mani and if you have some suggestions about it. I'd also love to know your ideas for manicures for special occasions or holidays!

Love,
Nati

    1. Thanks Gelic! I've follow your advice of stamping small images instead of whole nail patterns and it worked! xxx

  4. Hi Nati, this is super cute - I love the whole composition!!!!! I received two awesome stamping plates from my friend in Brazil and they work a million times better than the Essence plate. Would you have any advice for a beginner? Do you think I should buy stamping polish?

    1. Thanks Christine! I'd love to see some stamping from you. I'm sorry but I'm a beginner too and don't know exactly how to help you. I had a tough time finding the right polish to stamp. But, I had good results so far with any polish that is opaque in one coat and doesn't dry instantly. I have some stamping polish from konad too, I think they're ok but too expensive!!

    2. Thank you Nati!!! Ahhh now I understand - did a second practice session today and evidently used polish that dries too quickly, after two nails I could not really swipe over the pattern properly anymore - see you helped me tremendously. I will pick up the polishes you used. But I have to admit I was quite happy with two out of four stamped nails ;-)

  5. Very cute. I think I have to take a closer look at the Butter London polish. Victoriana looks gorgeous!

  6. Te ha quedado muy navideña :)

    Y veo que no se te da tan mal la estampación, porque al menos a ésta yo no le veo ni un sólo fallo ;)

    Besos!!

  7. Hi Natalia,
    Just came across your blog and had to follow, love these nails. So festive and eye catching.
    The gold tips are so cool..I did gold glitter nails on a budget as I love gold for Christmas. It adds that extra bit of glamour and sparkle to any outfit :)

    Hope you'd like to follow me back.
