CNT Presents ~ 26 Great Nail Art Ideas ~ Winter Warmth

Happy Turkey Weekend Dahlings!

For those of you that don't live in the US...
Happy Friday!

This time around the Tarts are doing manis that show winter warmth.

I did this...

 To me winter warmth means hand made gifts
to warm both the body & the heart,
so I went with hand stitched stamping.

 The Lady Varnishes The Ghost with the Most
I stamped using Creative Shop Plate Ukraine 

I got the glow in the dark option
as I do whenever Kristen offers it.
Look at that awesome detail in this image!

Having a personal lap warmer doesn't hurt either
when it comes to staying toasty!

The Crumpet's Nail Tarts Present ~ 26 Great Nail Art Ideas ~ Over a Black Base

Hello Dahlings!

This time the Tarts are doing nail art over a black base.
Easy peasy, nice & squeezy!

I did this...

I did this not long before Halloween,
so that's where my design went.

My black base is 2 coats of a franken I made
that contains the leftovers of good black polishes.
You know how when you get past the half way point
in a bottle of polish, it gets harder to get
a usable amount of polish on the brush?
This is my solution to those half empty bottles
of frequently used colors like black & white.

Black base franken ~ Silk Boxers
Sinful Colors ~ Got a Bat-attitude

After applying my franken base coat & 2 coats of Silk Boxers,
I added 2 coats of Got a Bat-attitude
& avoided fishing out any lil bats.
Then I full brush dabbed Bat-chelor in Paradise on all my nails.
Most chunky polish require lots of fishing
to get those big shapes out of the bottle, but not with BinP.
If anything, I was having to put bats & moons back in the bottle
for the nails I was going to be stamping on!

with Midnight Pumpkin to stamp the Jack O' Lantern faces
& sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite on the stamped nails
before adding a coat of Seche Vite.
The tips of the bat wings were a lil pokey,
but this glitter smoothing top coat did the trick.

Yeah, this worked out well!

Me wants cat treats...NOW!
