I have another New Year's mani today, I tried a million different options for fireworks stamps and none of them looked good enough so I decided to keep it simple cause I was getting frustrated and couldn't make it work.
I pulled this beauty from my stash called Lady of the Lake by AEngland cause of the awesome holo sparkle it gives out, and added a simple gold starry stamp from the Moyou London Festive 06 plate and with China Glaze Passion that I mixed with some Kleancolor Metallic Red to give it a little extra color like fireworks have. It's not the best design but I think it can work out if you don't have time to do a full on, out of this world mani.
What do you think?
The other day I decided I wanted to swatch my entire collection by brand and someone on twitter suggested that I should start alphabetically by brand. The first brand on my stash is A England which I seriously love, they have the most amazing scattered holo nail polishes too bad I only have a couple cause they're expensive :(
For today's mani I have Tristam which is a gorgeous dark blue scattered holo, I only needed 2 easy coats for full opacity.
I sort of felt like doing a holo inception and stamped holo over holo so I used Color Club's Harp and stam[ped some stars on it but it was too much I think and the stars bare showed. It all just looked like a holographic explosion! Not that I'm complaining.
I love how sparkly it looks even thou the design is not really noticeable, I should try this more often. Have you ever done a holo inception like this?

Can you believe it's December already? This whole year went by so fast and I'm really excited to finish it with a nail challenge. Recently I was given a Lovely Blog Award by the lovely lady behind the polish aholic blog and I found out they were doing the Advent Calendar Nail Challenge, I of course had to join in.
It's 24 days filled with awesome holiday nail art, I have a picture of the whole break down below:
Now on to the first day nails. For this mani I used 2 coats of A England Merlin, the most awesome silver glitter and Zoya Sookie with Bundle Monster's BM -205 plate. In my ring finger I have 2 coats of China Glaze Love Marilyn.
I really love how this turned out. Now go check out what the girls came up with.

It's Monday again, I had a 4 day weekend so I'm pretty relaxed right now and ready to keep blogging.
A few days ago I tried another A-England polish and I love love loved it. The pics below are only 2 coats and no top coat.
I added some extra sparkle with a coat of Hits Lambada because who doesn't love flakies, right?
I love how flakies look in the shade cause you can actually tell the shapes and colors better.
Have and awesome week and thanks for reading <3
Another pink many for Wednesday and since it is February is valentine's inspired.
As a base color I used My new A-England Morgan Le Fay and for the stamp I used China Glaze Velvet Bow, Winter Berry and Poinsettia With plate Ra-114.
Now a couple of swatches of Morgan Le Fay by itself. I used a white base coat since the polish is really sheer. Once applied it looked a lot like Orly Au Champagne, it has the same pink/light blue micro shimmer in it.
I really like this manicure, I don't wanna take it off until Valentine's day :)
