Welcome to the velvet jungle!

Hi Everyone!!! Happy Weekend!  You don't have to cue the Guns n Roses music if you don't want too BUT today I have a gradient with a couple of the new Pure Ice Velvets and I did an animal print stamp over them.  I LOVE how it turned out!  First of all let me just tell you how much I love suede polishes. I LOVE THEM!  When I heard Pure Ice had suedes aka velvets I was so stoked.  Alas the Walmarts here do not have the LE Holiday display.  Coming to my rescue is the fab Ashley from Ashley is Polish Addicted.  She got me the ones I wanted and my "wifey" Lori is looking for some I didn't think I needed but then discovered yes I do need them after all lol!  Anyway thanks to some awesome friends I'm going to wind up with all of the ones I wanted!

Today I did a gradient with Black Velour and Femme Fatale and then I stamped over it with Sally Hansen Chrome Pen in green using BM221

I really love this matte look to it!

My image didn't transfer so hot on the pinkie

I'm so thankful for Fall and Winter months because I'm not a pastel lover at all!

I love dark colors and green and black together rock!

I added a shiny topcoat to it, but I think I like the matte look better!

How about you?  Matte or shiny?

I can't wait to do more mani's with these Pure Ice's!!! Hopefully they'll find their way here I might want to check out the glitters lol!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!


  1. I love this! What stamping plates do you use? I'm in the market for new ones, since mine now aren't made for longer nails. So most of my full nail designs don't fit my nail :(

  2. I used a plate from the 2nd Bundle Monster set. I do love all of the Bundle Monster sets. Whenever my nails get too long for the stamping plates I have I cut them down! I don't like to double stamp lol!

  3. Looks awesome!! I prefer it matte as well!

  4. Beautiful! I can't find any of the velvets here yet.
