Christmas stamping nail art manicure, OPI - I'm Not Really A Waitress christmas manicure nail art

Today I have a review of a Christmas plate MoYou Nails sent me!

The plate has 7 seasonal designs, all of them are super cute, I am especially in love with that owl in the middle! I used the little holly design, and it stamped perfectly! This time I also used the scraper and stamp they sent me, and they worked perfectly! The scraper is plastic, I usually use my metal Konad scraper, but I was pleasantly surprised by how well this plastic scraper worked!

I stamped using a silver polish from Depend, my favorite silver polish for stamping. And I stamped over my favorite Christmas red, OPI - I'm Not Really A Waitress. On my index and pinky I used the gorgeous, sparkly, textured Maybelline - Light Up.

MoYou nails have a large selection of stamping plates, I have only tried two of them so far, but those two have been excellent quality, so I can absolutely recommend them!

Mor nail art from Bundle Monster! They have so much cool nail art supplies, you have to go check it out!

Today I am pairing Shimmer - Eva with these beautiful pearl studs. These studs come in a set with three wheels, one with white pearly studs, one with cream colored pearl studs and one with silver and gold studs. All for $4.99, pretty good deal!

I like the combination of white pearls and this beaufiul red glitter, it's so christmasy! It sort of reminds of snow falling! Though, my bf thought it looked like gross insect eggs... LOL! What do you think?

I just pushed the studs into the wet top coat, but if you want to make it last longer you should add another layer of top coat over the studs.

I also noticed that on some of the studs the pearly finish had fallen off, you can see one of them on my ring finger, I didn't notice until it was on my nail and was too lazy to take it off and start over. So just look out for that before placing the studs! But by all means, doing this manicure I only discovered two studs where the finish had fallen off, so I wouldn't say it's a big problem.

Shimmer Polish - Jacki swatch and review

Shimmer Polish - Jacki is a gorgeous vampy polish.

I'm not quite sure how to describe this color, it's a red base packed with blue, red and gold glitter, making it look more like a plum color at full opacity. Absolutely beautiful!

Like all Shimmers I've tried, Jacki also builds up to full opacity with three coats. Index - 1 coat, middle - 2 coats, ring and pinky - 3 coats.

Shimmer Polish - Jacki swatch and review

I absolutely love the complexity of the colors in this polish. These swatches are without top coat, but I would advise using top coat as it dries sort of gritty, and also a shiny top coat would really bring out the depth of the polish.

Winter snow flakes snow crystals nail art manicure KB Shimmer - Snow Much Fun nail polish

I am so excited that winter is coming and I can wear this gorgeous KB Shimmer polish again! Snow Much Fun is from their 2013 winter collection, but I didn't get it until March. It was constantly sold out, and I'm sure you can see why, it's gorgeous!

I decided to pair it with some accents nails where I painted snow crystals. The white base is OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls, I painted the snow crystals using Kicks - Rain Drops and added some glittery dots with OPI - My Voise Is A Little Norse.

I did use two thick coats of top coat over Snow Much Fun, but the snow flakes are so large that they poke through it no matter what. I don't mind though, because it's such a pretty polish!
