Eye of Horus


A couple of weeks ago, I ordered some new stamping plate sets, and I couldn’t wait to use them.  Of course, it took me forever to decide which one to use first, but some of the tribal designs really caught my eye.

I started with a base of Revlon Parfumerie Balsam Fir, which is definitely one of my favorite Parfumerie colors/scents so far.  Then I stamped the eye of Horus design using Mash plate 65 and Essie Good as Gold.  The glitter on the rest of my fingers is A Study in Polish 221B, which is a perfect black and gold glitter topcoat.

I really like how these turned out.  They’re simple, but still really cool.  And I really love how the sparkle is not too overwhelming.

Last night, I was in the mood for some holiday nails, but I’m still not quite ready to go all-out Christmas.  I saw these on Pintrest (and cannot for the life of me find the pin right now), and knew I had to try them.  I love how the pattern tones down the metallic red and the red spices up a pattern that brings to mind cozy flannel shirts and blankets.  I’m kind of obsessed with them.

I started with OPI I’m Not Really a Waitress, and then stamped the pattern on with Sinful Colors Black on Black and Mash plate 50.

I’ve been really into stamping lately, but this is definitely a favorite!  Couldn’t stop staring at my nails all day.


Today’s post is more Halloween nail art!  Are you getting sick of it yet?  I hope not, because there are seven more days (I didn’t really think this twelve days of nail art thing through haha).

These are not the best or most creative, but I really wanted to use my new stamping plates, and this is what I came up with.

For the base, I used China Glaze Immortal from their Wicked Halloween collection.  I was stupid and didn’t get pictures of it alone, but it’s a gorgeous shimmery gray.  I stamped the skulls using Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On and Mash plate 29.  At that point, it was really boring, so I added black rhinestones for eyes.

Stamping is not as easy as it looks, at least for me, so I’m pretty happy with how these came out.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
