The Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Holiday Season - Christmas Greetings

*Press Sample*

Hi all!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas if you celebrate it. This mani is what's on my nails at the moment.

  • L.A. Girl - 3D Effects - GNL303 Teal Dimension
  • SinfulColors - 101 Snow Me White
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer -  I Live, I Die, I Live Again
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Pretty Like Poison
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Stone of Space
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Stardust
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

I also used stamping plate BP-L056 (item 37097) from Born Pretty Store. It's a real Christmas themed plate, although some images can be used during winter or at other times as well.

Base: 2 coats of Teal Dimension. I stamped with Snow Me White and I used two different images from the BP-L056 plate. Then I used the other polishes to add some colour and I sealed everything in with Elemental Ward.

Born Pretty Store kindly gave me a discount code to share with you all! If you use code BBL91 you get 10% off your purchase! You can find their nail art products here! And they offer worldwide free shipping!

Pinces de Crabe

Hi all!

Today I've got another one of Very Emily's collaboration polishes with Femme Fatale to show you: Pinces de Crabe. The name meaning crab claws you know I had to add some crab claw nail art! I used this image here for inspiration.

  • Femme Fatale - Nord-Pas-de-Calais Trio - Pinces de Crabe
  • Cirque - Cypress
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Dark Matter
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

Base: 2 coats of Pinces de Crabe. I absolutely adore this polish, it's got those mini flakes I love and these colours are just so autumnal and lovely. I used a thin nail art brush to add the outline of the claws with Dark Matter, filled them in with Cypress and redid the black lines and shading. Finished with Elemental Ward of course.

Of course the claw on my thumb didn't work out as well as the one on my ring finger...

What do you think of this polish?

Love, Brethil
