China Glaze Dance Baby

November 11, 2013

I was traveling last week and when I travel I always seen to come home with broken nails. This time was no exception. So after my pinky fingernail became a little stub, I shortened all of them. Easier to let them grow out when they’re similar lengths, you know?

So please excuse the itty bitty baby nail on my pinky finger that I’ll be sporting for a next few weeks. :)

This color is Dancy Baby from China Glaze…

Cutesy Halloween Stamped Manicure

October 17, 2013

Sorry for not posting for SO long, guys! I’ve been posting nail pictures on my Instagram, though. Be sure to check those out.

Anyhow, this is definitely not one of the gruesome, scary Halloween manicures out there. Yikes! I’m definitely more of a Casper the Friendly Ghost type of Halloween celebrator. :)

Here are the details on each finger…

All nails were topped with Seche Vite topcoat. :)

Raspberry Pink Stamping

July 1, 2013

Took a chance and tried stamping with a China Glaze polish today. Most of the time I stick with my tried and true polishes that I know I work (see this blog entry), but I thought since the base color on this manicure was a lighter pink, maybe the dark magenta raspberry color of Traffic Jam would stamp okay? I tried it on some paper first, and success! I just had to be sure to stamp quickly. Otherwise, it dried too quickly.

Anyhow, since I’ve tried that one, I want to try even more darker polishes! Have you discovered more non-Konad polishes that work well with stamping? Leave a comment below! :)

Base Color: China Glaze Dance Baby
Stamping Color: China Glaze Traffic Jam
Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster BM-322

China Glaze Fancy Pants + W111 stamping

March 1, 2013

Today I have a purpley-periwinkle polish called Fancy Pants from the China Glaze Avant Garden collection. I ended up stamping on top of it, but first here are the plain polish photos. It looks much more blue-ish in person. I love the subtle pink shimmer in it…

Then I did some stamping on it. :)

Base Color: China Glaze Fancy Pants
Stamping Color: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Presto Pink
Stamping Plate: Winstonia W111

* Winstonia plates were sent to me for review.

China Glaze Budding Romance

February 28, 2013

China Glaze’s Budding Romance is a “so ugly it’s cool” olive green polish from the Avant Garden collection. I kind of loved it. :)

I did have to do three thick coats, however. I must have been in a hurry because I got some bubbles, but it wasn’t too noticeable. In fact, I didn’t even notice until I was editing the photos.
