Chinese New Year Splatter + Stamping

Hello :) Here's how I did my nails for Chinese New Year's Eve & Chinese New Year day!

The base color is two coats of China Glaze Red Stallion, I splattered it with Kleancolor Metallic Yellow, & I topped it off with Seche Vite.

The circle design & first Chinese character are from the Bundle Monster BM206 plate & stamped with Kleancolor Metallic Yellow. The second character from Bundle Monster BM225 plate, stamped with Konad Special Polish in black.

The first Chinese character says friend & second says love. Hehe, I had a little help.

Do you guys like this? I think splatters goes well with every occasion!

I decided to tweak my mani up a little bit on CNY day. I'm still wearing this mani & I love it! 

That's how I would take pictures of my nails if I had tip wears, but I decided to do a little touching up.

Chinese New Year Mani.

I've been seeing this color combo with crackle/shatter & had to try this for myself! It's perfect for Chinese New Year & if you're a fan of the 49ers! & Happy new year to those who celebrate! ^_^

The base color I used was China Glaze Twenty-Four K, applied OPI Red Shatter, & then topped it off with Seche Vite. There's also a mattified version at the end!

Twenty-Four K is my favorite gold from China Glaze. I need another bottle!

I have two or three more CNY mani's to show you guys! Hopefully.

Week 3: Color Block Mani.

Here's what I came up with for this week's color block mani theme. I think this is what color block is supposed to look like. Hah.

The blue I used was China Glaze Flyin' High, the chartreuse color is China Glaze Electric Pineapple, the taupe color is American Apparel Mouse, & I used LA Color Art Deco in black for the lines. Electric Pineapple is one of my favorite China Glaze that I bought last year. It sucks that I spilt half the bottle on my bed sheets! That's what I get for always doing my nails in bed :(

Finger Paints Special Effects Flecked

Good afternoon! I have more flakies to show you guys! Finger Paints Special Effects consist of five flakies & this is the second one I'm showing you. If you didn't see the one when I used Twisted, click here! Out of the five, this is my second favorite, with Twisted being first. I love the color green, so Flecked is perfect for me! Depending on how you angle your nails, you can see the green turning into blue flakies. Love this!

I'm wearing two coats of Sinful Colors See You Soon with two coats of Finger Paints Flecked. When I was looking through my polishes, it was difficult to find a really dark blue, alas I found SYS, a dark blue with shimmers. I then skipped adding Seche Vite for my top coat & late added Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love to finish it off

Now from the beginning.

See You Soon & Flecked.

2 coats of See You Soon.

1 coat of Flecked.

2 coats of Flecked.

With Hard Candy Matte-ly In Love.

So which do you like, the shiny or mattified version?
