Tea Themed Nails – Color Club Silver Lake & Messy Mansion MM62

Tea Themed Nails with Color Club Silver Lake and Messy Mansion MM62 Stamping Plate

Messy Mansion’s MM62 stamping plate has been on my wishlist forever, so when I got an email from Nail Polish Canada to say they had new plates (right after I made my Boxing Week sale order) I eagerly checked and may have squealed out loud when I saw MM62 on the list of new plates.

Stamped Leaves Nail Art #CBBNov

Joy and Polish Spiced Plum stamped with BPL024 Leaves and Mdu Gold Copper and Merry Leaves Nail Art

Another day, another #CBBNov prompt.  Actually, having only two a week has been really nice.  Even if I haven’t been perfectly sticking to the posting schedule.  The second prompt for this week is leaves and since I pulled out my fall and winter themed stamping accessories, this was an easy one for me.  I used three stamping polishes to give the leaves different colours and loved the final look.

Half Moon Nail Art For #31DC2016

31DC2016 Half Moons Cirque Dear Dahlia

Day 18 of #31DC2016 is half moon nail art.  I rarely wear half moon nails, just not a fan of the look personally but it seemed like it should be simple.  Everyone uses those hole punch protector stickers so I set out to Dollarama and then Staples in search of them but everywhere is either sold out or do not sell them since seemingly people do not use them??  A helpful worker in Dollarama pointed out some Halloween stickers that[Read more]
