Bundle Monster Easter

Hello everyone!

As you probably see, I've used 4 Bundle Monster stamping plates with Easter images, and added some dots. Yes, candy is still a big part of my Easter Holidays! My favourite Easter image is the one with the bunny in the egg with the flowers. The base is a- england Briarwood, bought with a 40% coupon code when many online stores celebrated Tristam's birthday, a few weeks ago! :-) Tristam is of course Adina's (the creator of a- england) beautiful cat. He is 3 years old.


a- england: Briarwood
Dotting tool
Bundle Monster stamping plates:
Index finger: BM- H09
Middle finger: BM- H10 & some added dots
Ring finger: BM- 302
Pinkie: BM- 306
China Glaze: Passion -gold -used for stamping
XL stamper
& base-, and top coat

a- england is not tested on animals.

I actually made this before Easter, but as usual, I'm behind on the blogging. I even have lots of photos from 2013 that I have to go through. :-( And I still haven't showed all the nail art I did the last 6 months... and I keep swatching and making new nail art... What do you think I should do?

Happy Easter!

"Easter" is the nail art theme in some of the groups I'm in, and blue and yellow are two of the colors for Tripolish April. So this is also for the Tri Polish Challenge, and therefor you will find thumbnails at the end of this post.

Ruby Kisses: Lavender Dream

Hello everyone!

Lavender Dream is a nearly pink pastel purple cream nail polish from Ruby Kisses. I've been wearing LD twice on my nails, and on my toes for a month. I'm not showing photos of my toes, although LD made my white feet look like I had a tan (as if it was a neon)! :-) I even got a compliment. Here you see what it looks like with a coat of Seche Vite in the sun and in the shade. I don't remember if I used 2 or 3 coats, but the formula was good.

GOT Polish Challenge: YELLOW/ PEACH

Hello everyone!

Helena Rubinstein: 'Lemon Heat' was one of the old bottles of polish that I looked forward to use when I first heard about the GOT Challenge. I don't remember when I bought it, but I think it can be considered vintage. Do you know how old it is? Maybe 15 years? Still no need for thinner.

You can find Lemon Heat swatched here, and my tiny vintage collection here.

For the stamping I used Konad: SN Yellow, and flowers from two Moyou London stamping plates: 08 (small) and 10 (XL), both from the Pro Collection. (I couldn't find 08 now that I wanted to link to it.)

The first photos below are of a shiny Lemon Heat with stamping, the next are with top coat (Seche Vite), and the rest are mattified (with GOSH #600 'Matt Effect Top Coat').
