NOTD 175 – Frosty the SNOWman

HAPPYYYY BIRTHDAYYYY!!!

Remember the Nail art Challenge I told you I was entering, well this is my first entry. (CLICK HERE TO VOTE) (voting ends Saturday the 30th I believe).  The first week’s theme was ‘snow’ I have a thing for snowmen, a lot of my Christmas decorations are snowmen or snow related. Frosty was always one of my favorite Christmas movies as a kid, who am I kidding, even as an adult… 🙂 so it was only fitting that I find a way to incorporate him in to my theme.

I painted all of my nails with two coats of Revlon – Blizzard Blue. For my pointer and pinky finger I used a snow flake stamp and stamped Essie – Aruba Blue, Essie – No place like chrome, ILNP – Indie Go, and Ulta – Snow White. For my Frosty nail I used Ulta Snow White, Barry M – Gray for his hat, China Glaze – Liquid Leather for the rim of his hat, and Loreal – Captivating Crimson for his nose. For Frosty’s scarf I used Wet N Wild Spoiled – Designated Driver and Ruffian – Foxhunt, for his flower I used Revlon Blizzard blue and Darling Diva’s Peonie, and for his pipe I used Sally Hansen’s Forbidden Fudge. Lastly for my snowy tree nail, I used Sally Hansen Forbidden Fudge, and Ulta – Snow White.

NOTD 73 – “Why so Igneous”

Today is Cynthia’s Birthday so make sure you stop by and wish her a Happy Birthday! For todays NOTD, I have a GORGEOUS topper called “Why So Igneous by Hare Polish” I first saw this swatched on Tara’s blog and just had to have it! This is a gorgeous very jelly purple with green and purple flakes. I love how toppers look so different over every color. I ended up with it over “Essie – No Place like Chrome” I cannot wait to put it over black or orange for Halloween.

While we are on the subject, with October approaching very quickly now is the time to announce that I will be doing Halloween manis all month. Halloween is my absolute favorite time of the year, I am obsessed with “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and just about anything Tim Burton for that matter, so it only seems fitting that I do a whole month of  Halloween manis!

Anyway back to the polish and how awesome it looks over different polishes, here are a few examples:

It looks gorgeous over every color, but I love it the most over the silver, it makes the silver look like a metallic purple under the topper, and simply fabulous over the black, those two are my favorite!

Since I am holding off on Halloween manis, I ended up with 2 coats of “Hare – Why So Igneous” overtop  2 coats of “Essie – No place like chrome” but here are two shots of it with one coat first.

Here is the final look with the two coats over two coats.
