Check out my nails: snowflakes, take 2.


Do you love these? Because I LOVE LOVE LOVE these. I am seriously falling in love with stamping, even though it is sometimes a hater. Just look at those snowflakes! The only thing I wish I would have done differently is added one more layer of base. I couldn't tell how transparent they were until I was in the bright sun. 

[snowflakes, take 2]
Arcane Lacquer - Locked in Limbo x2 coats
Snowflake stamps, Wet N Wild - French White Creme
China Glaze - Fast Forward Top Coat x1 coat

The Arcane Lacquer was a purchase from a Llarowe sale. It is so grey in the bottle but so purple on my fingers! It's a really easy-to-use polish and coverage was good (though I should have used another coat). There is a ton of shimmer that refused to be photographed, a blue-ish silver-ish purple, so frackin' pretty. Overall the polish is awesome and easy to work with.

Have you tried stamping? Did it work for you? I had a really hard time with it in the beginning because I think I was pressing too hard on my scraper. Once I stopped being so abusive, it seems to work wonderfully! Do you have a favorite stamp brand?


  1. I tried stamping and then somehow acetone polish remover ruined the stamp.... yeah, stuff like that happens to me. I had some off brand stuff I got off ebay so that probably didn't help. Tell you what--we should live in the same city, and I'll make you sign up for fun races, and you can help me do my nailssssss!!! Okay? Okay. xoxoxo

    1. Oh no! That's terrible. Stamping is really super fun.

      And that sounds like a brilliant plan to me! I'm down.

  2. These are my favorite. So cute. Can't wait to get good like you at painting!
