Nail Crazies Unite: Red & black hobbies









Red and black hobbies are this week's challenge theme. One of my hobbies are city trips, I try to visit at least two cities a year. So I went with a skyline in front of a sunset for this prompt.





For the sunset background I used MoYou London Autumn Harvest and Rust Red and a red Born Pretty Store stamping polish. The skyscrapers I staped with Born Pretty Store black stamping polish and Vivid Lacquer plate VL-004, the lights I added using a yellow Born Pretty Store stamping polish and a dotting tool. I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top for protection and extra shine.

Valentine's Day





Happy Valentine's Day! I don't celebrate, but I still wanted to wear an appropriate mani.




As base I applied two coats of OPI Casino Royale. For the stamping I used China Glaze Wood You Wanna and Pueen plate 41. One coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top finished this mani.

Nail Crazies Unite: Anti Valentine Hearts







Somebody in the Nail Crazies Unite group doesn't look forward to next week's Valentines Day, since today's theme is Anti Valentine...





I started with two coats of Born Pretty Store's red stamping polish, stamped some hearts on it using Born Pretty Store white stamping polish and Pueen plate 55, then this sort of barbed wire pattern with Lily Anna plate 05 and Born Pretty Store black stamping polish. As usual, I added onne coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

Indian Summer






It's probably not really the right time to show you a polish called Indian Summer, but well, it's pretty, so that's a good reason to show it out of season, right?





Indian Summer by CrowsToes is a multichrome shifting from blue over purple to a pink-ish red. I used three coats for opacity (no black base needed).





For the stamping I used Lily Anna plate 05 and Barry M. Lilac Foil, then I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.








Crows Toes polishes are available at their own store (US only), Femme Fatale Cosmetics, Color4Nails.
