Doing my nails is a weekly thing, so thought I'd share my designs online. I use nail stamps, nail art pens, transfers, stickers & plain polishes. I'm a kiwi who has done a fair amount of traveling, recently returned from the UK and job hunting back home in New Zealand.

Red, Green & Silver - Double Christmas Nails..
After a busy two (or more like 4 now that I'm finally finishing this post!) weeks, Christmas is over and done with. It's been busy, busy, busy so I've missed a post or two on here but this is a double post showing off my Christmas nails from the last two weeks to show off what nails I managed to get done.
Seeing as gold isn't really my colour, I went for Silver as my base coat & Red, Green & glitter for the designs.
Here's the silver I used for the base coat. Wet 'n' Wild. Its the first (and only) nail polish I won from a woman's magazine once back when I was about 14. So pretty old but still works (due to being kept in the fridge).
I then painted green & red on alternating nails, on an angle across the tips (kinda like a french tip, but angled).
I used Konad special polish in green ($8.99 from a Korean Nail/accessory shop in Hamilton (its called Sexy Catz;)
And my favourite red, Dear Face from a cheap korean shop (W4000)
For the stamping designs I used Konad Plate M12 (the christmas one!), the middle left picture. I'll upload a picture of the plate as soon as I get a chance to take pictures of my original plates.
And the colours I used were:
Konad special polish in Wine Red & Green.
As well as Silver glitter to add some sparkles.
And here's the finished result.
And here are my nails for Christmas day.
I used the same red & green as above, but used LA Girl Cracked in Silver over the top.
Hope your christmas was good, mine involved too much food & chocolate as well as lots of time with the family :)
Edit 16/01/12 Here's the christmas plate now that i've finally taken pics of all my plates :)
