At last my mani has come along!

Hi Everyone!  Oh my lord I have had a day!  I got up super early to work on my AIS challenge mani for today and here it is 2pm and I'm finally getting it blogged!  Today's challenge theme is stamping over a blue base and I really wanted to use some untrieds.  I hauled out China Glaze Secret Periwinkle and the Essence Blue Magnetic I have and discovered two things.  While they look like they'll match up in the bottles once on the nail they did not AND seche vite ruined the magnetic!  It completely erased the lines the magnet made.

I was so hacked off!

I decided to start again and use China Glaze Sea Spray with it.  I also changed around my magnet lines and FINALLY I have something I like!

I did a half moon mani for this magnetic and I like it.  The Blue Essence is gorgeous!

I even stamped with it for my accent nail!  Magnetic polishes stamp great!

I used a few plates for the snowflakes.  The accent nail is BM323, index is 
RA-119, swear and pinkie is BM14, and the thumb is SH17

I really love the snowflakes on the thumb and index and wish there were plates with those snowflakes only smaller--if you know of one let me know!

All in all I'm really happy with how this turned out EVEN if it took forever!

Now I just have to hope we don't see snow in Wisconsin anytime soon!

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you all are having a great weekend!


  1. I love it! It's like Jack Frost on your nails.

  2. I know those days very well but when I have a bad day my nails would never look as good as yours.

  3. Love the snowflakes! Too cute. :)

  4. Very cute and different! The snowflakes on this plate are a great small size:
