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.

Once Upon a Time Challenge - Day 5 True Loves Kiss....
Today is day 5 of the Once Upon a Time Challenge with the subject being True Love's Kiss (if you're addicted to the show like me, you'd know there was a whole episode based around it featuring Mary Margret and Charming). Today is also Valentines day so Happy Valentines to you all and hope you're getting something nice from an admirer:)
As I was thinking about what I would do, the colour pink is the first thing that came to mind. Luckily I have a few to choose from. The colours I used were:
Klean Colour Metallics (mini) in Metallic Pink (Postie Plus in New Zealand), Cosmiss fashion colour 006 in white (from a cheap subway shop in Prague) & Konad Special Polish in White.
I've put a different stamp on each finger, with my thumbs with a white as a base coat and stamping with the metallic pink (best thing about these Klean colours, they work as normal or stamping polish).
I went with a dancing couple on my pinkie - usually in fairytales the couple in True Love get a dance as well as a kiss:) Plate: OMG Nails Salon Pro 4.
My ring finger was lips - stamped twice. I've re-stamped the bottom lips, but not the top - see what my stupid top coat did :(. Plate: BM02
Middle finger was the world love with two mini hearts. Plate: M18 & BM09.
Pointer finger was a simple rose, like what beauty was holding when Phillip awoke her with a kiss. Plate: B41 (random knock off).
And lastly my thumbs are a whole nail heart pattern. Plate: BM-317.
I was all done, looking good (nice and pink;) when I added the top coat forgetting one thing - the pink tends to bleed! My white faded to a hot pink - still able to be seen but not as much of a pop as I liked! Luckily I was able to re-add the stamps on top - hardest thing was lining them up.
Hope you like the final product (I'm such a sucker for pink, I keep seeing them out of the corner of my eye when I'm doing things hehe) and make sure you check out the nails from the other bloggers doing the challenge :)
