So remember when I received the XL image plates a few days ago? 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...

I used m69 image plate and Konad princess polish in Green. I added a small pearl in the middle of each nail as an accent. I really like this mani, one of my favorites. The holo is very distracting, it gets my attention every time. :D

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...

Here are some of my beloved American Apparel nail polishes! I think AA has some of the best creme polishes out there. I love how most of them glide like a dream and are opaque in one coat. Here is a nail look using one of my faves- Army Jacket! It's a nice dusty green creme that is perfect...

I added some oomph by stamping an image from my Chez-Delaney jumbo image plate in H14 using China Glaze in Passion. Good night/day and I'll be posting more nail polish swatches and nail art soon!

Orly Spring Collection 2011. Sapphire Silk is a deep muted teal which they say is similar to MAC's Blue India. I have the latter as well and Blue India has a bit more greyish undertone, sort of more dusty: MAC Blue India Anyways, they are not complete dupes and I am happy I have both in my...

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...
