Monday's Manicure

Currently watching: Inception

Good morning girls!

I am very excited as this is my last week of work before I finish for Christmas :-)

With that in mind, I decided to spruce up yesterday's swatch with some winter stamping:

My first step was to stamp a snowflake using Konad Special Polish in white and Red Angel plate RA119.

I then sponged on some Miss Sporty silver glitter. It was my first time using this sponging technique. I will definitely be using it again.

To finish off, I applied a layer of Miss Sporty Sparkle Touch glitter.

I really liked this, despite the silver sponging leaving a bit of a mess around my cuticles! What do you think of this manicure girls? Are you a fan of sponging?

Bye for now,

  2. Ohhhhhhhh Awesome Laura.. I m loving it.. Am gonna try this for Christmas but i wont get this perfect finish :( Let me try..

  11. @Ashesela, thanks! I'm excited to try sponging on many more manicures when I'm on holiday over Christmas :-)

    @Divine Blush, thank you! I bet your manicure will be great :-)

    @TheOtherSideofCool, aw, thanks :-) But they're not perfect. I've learned that sponging and glitter topcoats are great ways of hiding mistakes ;-)
