Nail Art Contest: Stamping Skills

The weekend is over, Thanksgiving is now behind us.  But there is still a ton of food in my fridge.  We will be eating Thanksgiving dinner for a week, LOL.  But now that the long week of no school is over, I can get back to some regular posting.  At least I hope so.  Before we left for the weekend I saw a nail art contest I wanted to enter.  It is based on stamping so it's right up my alley :)  I have wanted to do a few in the past, but never found the time to create the nail art and enter.  
I did a design a while back and although I wished it had turned out a little a better, I get compliments on that design a lot.  It was even picked out of my older photos by a fellow blogger as one of her favorites to share on her FB page.  So I decided it was time to re-do this one and make it a little better.
Here is the old design:

I didn't change much, just did added the glitter before stamping and added some fun rhinestones on my accent nail.  Here is the new one:

I think a couple slight improvements made a big difference.  I even like the length and shape of my nails better now than when I first started blogging back in March, which is when I originally did this mani.

Products used:
Base Coat:  Rejuvacote
Base Color:  Sinful Colors Snow Me White
Glitter:  China Glaze Fairy Dust
Stamping Plate:  Konad M57
Stamping Polish:  Konad Special Black

There are lots of great entries in this contest, wish me luck!
The deadline to enter is today, but if you are interested, go HERE

Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving and aren't too bummed to go back to work today, if you indeed did go back to work today LOL


  1. This looks great. I've wanted to re-create a mani from when I first started blogging and compare them. I think it would be really interesting. Good luck!

    1. It's fun to go back and look at your older mani's and see what you would do differently :)

  2. This is soooo beautiful!!! You've got a new follower here!!!!
