Sunday Stamping - Happy New Year 2014

Hey there!  This week's Adventures in Stamping theme is Happy New Year 2014!  I can't believe the new year is right around the corner!  Here's what I came up with to celebrate this theme.

Icy Textured Gradient

Hey there!  First, I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas (or your holiday of choice) and made some wonderful new memories.  Second, I have to apologize for disappearing for the last few days.  I honestly thought I'd have time to write a post or two but I went to my parents' house and their internet is practically circa 1994.  I grew up outside of the city and it's still really hard to get decent internet service installed out there short of cutting down all the trees on the acreage...and that would be A LOT of trees.  It's a shame because I really wanted to show my Christmas nails.  They weren't overly Christmas-y so maybe I can still share them.

Anyways, since I'm now back to the land of proper internet (and my nail polish stash), here's a winter-y textured gradient I did recently.  The first textured gradient I've done.

Picture Polish Candy Cane Nail Art

Hey there!  I mentioned in my last post that I love candy canes, didn't I?  I'm actually eating one as I type this so I thought it would be appropriate to post another candy cane look I wore last week, using all Picture Polish colors.

Candy Cane Jelly Stampwich

Hey there!  The theme of week 3 of Nail Polish Canada's Holiday Nail Art Challenge is Holiday Memories.  I went with a candy cane jelly stampwich because we always had candy canes on our Christmas tree and I still love candy canes today.  Even the old ones that get kind of chewy...

Banksy Balloon Girl Stamping

Hey there!  Here's a nail look I did a little while ago.  I won't pretend to be even the slightest bit knowledgable about art but I do like the work of the UK graffiti artist, Banksy.  So I was super excited to see some of his art reproduced on the MoYou London Rebel -02 stamping plate.  Here's what I came up with to show off his Balloon Girl.

Holiday Wreath Nail Art

Hey guys!  I started writing this post on Friday and then ended up with a rare busy Friday night (drinks with my boss and belated birthday dinner with the family).  I've decided to participate in Nail Polish Canada's Holiday Nail Art Challenge.  I'm barely sneaking in for Week 2's theme which is "Decorations".  Feel free to find my image and vote :-)

A England Camelot

Hey there!  Today I'm sharing two manicures I've done using A England Camelot.  I love black nail polish and I love A England's formula so I find myself reaching for Camelot a lot.

American Apparel Gradient, Water Marble and Stamping

Hey there!  Welcome to December.  How was everybody's weekend?  Personally, I am another year older.  On the plus side, my sister bought me a new light box and my friend Susan bought me approximately one million Mod Lacquer polishes which is super exciting because I've never tried that brand before.  A nail polish addict's dream...

Anyways, a couple of weeks ago there was a Groupon for American Apparel so I picked up some new polishes and wanted to use them together.  So here's the spring-y manicure I came up with (despite the snow on the ground).
