NOTD: Christmas Baubles


My final festive nails instalment before Christmas uses a stamp I’ve been lusting over ever since I laid eyes on it earlier this year.  This bauble design from the BundleMonster Holiday plate set has to be one of the images I was most drawn to and it drove me crazy that it wasn’t “in season” for so long!  Before I show you the nails I have a couple of swatches of the base colour – Crowstoes Indian Summer.

This duochrome stunner is shown over a black base coat here and shifts from purple to pink to a reddish-copper.  I fell in love with this polish the second I saw the first swatch of it.  Unfortunately my lightbox hated it so my photos were snapped right under my desk lamp which make my skin look super pale.

Here is the finished manicure – the baubles come from BundleMonster plate BM-H03 and I stamped them using Essie Penny Talk.  To finish it off I sealed it with a coat of Cult Nails Wax That which is fast becoming my favourite top coat for stamping.  Again the duochrome didn’t play nice in my light box so I took these photos in natural light.

I hope all my readers have a lovely day tomorrow, whether you celebrate Christmas or not.  Happy holidays to you all!

  1. I love the way that the semi-hour glass shape in the stamp allows the shifting colors of Indian Summer to show though, Penny Talk is a nice complement and Wax That ties it all together beautifully. Great job!
