My first Christmas mani

I finally broke down, put away some of my un-Christmas-y polishes... and did something that makes me feel the season a bit.

I got this idea from http://morenailpolish.blogspot.com  when she pulled out her red holo nail polish...her mani was MUCH cooler!!! She reminded me that I had made a red spectraflair franken, so here we go!

Two coats of my super easy Red holo franken (this stuff dries really fast with spectraflair in it) and stamping with Konad m5, using NYC french mani white.


This would definitely look better with a downward slope on my nails, but I have what I have.....funky nails! This is with SV as a topcoat.

I started out stamping with the star on one of the Bundlemonster plates, but the corners of the star would not lift with the stamp...so I switched to my konad plate and I had lift-off! YAY!





I love how this turned out, so glossy and glowy...and I didn't see any smears, so life is good...
Gift/craft stuff.....I have made a few leather-covered altoid boxes for tampon/pad  holders, some big gummi bear soaps, even with cherry scent!
Small leather id holders are next.....

This is really pretty and I just love the snowflakes, which plate number did you use?
I want to see these leather covered altoid tins, they sound cool.

Thanks, Anita! I am pretty sure the plate was Konad m5. I will make sure and get pictures of the boxes and e-mail you those. I got some upholstery leather remnants cheap off e-bay and have been playing with it...
