Lime Crime leopard nails

I got a couple of nail varnishes from lime crime a couple of weeks ago and since Christmas is over I've given up on red and green glitter.

Enter lime green leopard nails.

I used two coats of Lime Crime Pistachio then used a dotting tool and Milky Ways to add random dots before finishing it off with some black to make the leopard pattern.

More Snowflake Nails

Another use of bundle monster plate BM 323. It's just so Christmassy. Especially over red nails.

I started with two coats of Cult Nails superbly festive red called Bitten, then added Deborah Lippmanns's Razzle Dazzle glitter on the tips.

Stamping was done using konad's special polish in white.

Green Glittery Christmas Nails

A couple of new pieces from my nail collection came out to play for this one.

Bright green is my favourite colour at the moment so Cult Nails new release Coveted became an instant must have, as did China Glaze's green glitter Running in Circles from their Cirque Du Soleil collaboration.

The obvious thing to do was a glitter gradient. So two coats of coveted and a smattering of running in circles later we have a very green nail that was a bit plain for my liking.

So I used bundle monster plate BM 323 and Konad special polish in white to add some wintry snowflakes.

The picture only has two figures as the mani was a few days old by the time I took the picture and I had tip wear!

China Glaze - It's A Trap-eze

China Glaze's holiday offering this year was with Cirque Du Soleil's release of World's Away 3D.

I adore Cirque Du Soleil. I was lucky enough to see 'O' while in Vegas and so the love affair began. Now whenever they're in the UK I try and go to the show.

So when I saw this collaboration I couldn't pass up. I got three colours off eBay and today I have the fabulous It's A Trap-eze. A gorgeous multicoloured glitter suspended in a milky white base. This is truly unique and such fun. I used three coats and topped it off with a couple of clear coats to smooth the texture.

Even in an extensive nail polish collection this is definitely one that will stand out!
