I used XL plate "D" for the images: I used the bottom left image. My base color is China Glaze in Digital Dawn from the Tronica collection. It's a nice burnt orange holo, very pretty. I used Konad special polish in Black, which was probably a mistake. I didn't like the overall nail look...

Here's one of my favorite nail images. I love purple polish so I find Orly Rio Nights amazing. It is a jelly though so it took a few additional coats for me to get the opacity I wanted. I used one of my favorite image plates of late, the XL image plate D: I used China Glaze khrome polish in...

using American Apparel nail lacquer in Cocoa. I wrote in a previous entry that American Apparel polishes are HG status for me because I love creme polishes, and these are mostly opaque in one coat, glides like a dream, and the colors are wonderful. Cocoa is a nice cool brown creme, very...

Many people who do nail stamp art know that chrome polishes work great on images. That's why I really wanted to get my hands on some discontinued Sally Hansen Chrome Nail Makeup polishes that I just ignored at drugstores when they were still available. I am regretting that because I have been...

It is from the much-coveted OMG collection of China Glaze. I snagged a number of OMGs from 2009, but I found this particular one at my neighborhood nail supply store a few weeks ago, and it's amazing that it was still available as the price for this is quite steep on eBay. Say no to those...

I am just loving this polish called Riveting from the China Glaze Hunger Games Collection, otherwise known as Capitol Colours. It's the most vibrant out of the 12 polishes from that collection, but I think it's also the prettiest and most coveted. It's this fiery orange-coral with shimmer that...

I really like this nail look. I am glad I was able to find base and top coats that make these kinds of nail looks last a pretty long time without chips (and no rhinestones falling off!). My favorite top coat is Gelous that you can get at Sally Nail Supply. It basically coats your nails with...

In the nail stamp art using Sapphire Silk, I also used my lovely XL image plate "D" with China Glaze Milleniumto stamp the image: XL image plate "D" I love my XL image plates, the images transfer really well onto the stamp. I accessorized it with cobalt rhinestones. Have a great weekend!

to make the images wider, because their full-nail designs were too narrow to cover the entire nail bed. Now I think they widened their images just a tiny bit. I picked a weird skull image as my Halloween image: I used China Glaze VIII for the base color. It is a very dark blue purple. I...

I opted swirls like this one, but I used a more subtle image color to almost blend with the background. I used my most favorite shade from the collection, Carey. It is a beautiful dove grey creme, so pretty for winter. For the image, I used China Glaze Sci-Fi which is a chrome polish, so...
