|December 2012 hauls/ gifts|
These are the things that I got in December. My mother gave me money for Christmas, and I used it to buy most of these nail polishes on sale between Christmas and New Years Eve. The rest of the money covered a large part of the stamping plates (that I already had bought). I also got Deborah Lippmann Let's go Crazy and the OPI nail polish remover for Christmas. And when I won the Chit Chat Nails Bundle Monster Giveaway, I used my 30$ coupon code to order the 2012 stamping plate set and 5 glitter wheels from Bundle Monster :-)
I didn't take extra photos of the CND Solar Speed Spray, and the OPI nail polish remover, but let's start with the nail polish!

(I think these were 80% off)
|Deborah Lippmann: Let's go Crazy, IsaDora: Orient Express, Nostalgic nail lacquer: Date at Midnight with Nosferatu|
Middle: IsaDora: #743 Orient Express (used in BLING Nails- Polish Days December)
Right: Nostalgic Nail Lacquer: Date at Midnight with Nosferatu (also used here)
I felt that the IsaDora polish was free, because I needed base coats, and they had a "buy two, get one free" sale
The diameter of this stamping plate is 6 cm, but the snowflakes are small and beautiful. They are in different sizes, but most of them are around 5 mm.
MM02 (also used here)
This is a limited edition New Years plate. The diameter is 7 cm, which is bigger than the other stamping plates. (Konad and Bundle Monster are 5,7 cm.) With full nail images of this size, it's possible to use different parts of the image so that all the nails don't look identical. The other images are also big; Big Ben is 1,9 x 5,0 cm. The text is 1 x 0,8 cm. The clock is 1 cm in diameter. The balloon image is 0,9 x 1,1 cm.

|Konad stamping plates|
My 8 first stamping plates from Konad :-) Sorry about the snow, but I hope you can see the images. It was difficult to get one photo of them all inside without reflections.

|Bundle Monster 2012 stamping plate set, nail art wheels|
There are 25 stamping plates in the Bundle Monster 2012 set. Some are with small images, and some are for french manicure, but most of them cover the entire nail. Most of you have probably seen these plates. If not, click here. These nail art wheels are a nice starter set for me. Now I can try these different things, and see what I like.
These are the things I chose when I won the Chit Chat Nails Bundle Monster Giveaway :-) Thank you Marta!
I still need tiny brushes, but what else would you buy if you were building up a nail art and stamping plate collection? Do you have any brushes to recommend?
