Oh Christmas trees, Oh Christmas trees...

What could make better nails than silver holo and some extra sparkly holo glitter. Only 4 days left until Christmas Day and I cannot wait, mainly for the food, obviously.

The plate I used for this mani is the Beauty Big Bang 12 stamping plate. This plate has 6 full size images, some good for regular stamping, some for double stamping and some for reverse stamping.

The plate is etched nicely, with no imperfections and the images pick up very well.

You can find this stamping plate as part of the 5 piece stamping plate set here for £7.47/$9.99 or on its own here for £1.49/$1.99 and don't forget to use my code PLUS10 for 10% off your order.

Espionage Cosmetics Classic Sonic the Hedgehog GITD Nail Wraps

Espionage Cosmetics Sonic the Hedgehog gamer nerdy nail wraps

As promised, here are the other set of the amazing Sonic the Hedgehog nail wraps from Espionage Cosmetics. This is a completely new angle for my hand and I'm not sure it works for me but I just had to show these the right way up. As I said before, both ends of the new 22's are curved and so I could have done it from the other end but then I wouldn't have got these cute Sonics by my cuticles. 

These beauties have glitter on the rings that is very sparkly but not only that...

Wrapping Paper Nails

Who's excited now?! Only 10 days until Christmas. We have seen snow but it has not settled nor has it lasted very long but I am still hopeful. Have you finished all your prep?

These wrapping paper nails are just what I need now as I am currently in the 'pretty much everything needs to still be wrapped' stage. They have been done using the Beauty Big Bang 13 stamping plate from the Christmas 5 piece stamping plate set.

The plate has 3 large images and 9 small images, most of which are great for reverse stamping. The pick up was great and there were no imperfections.

You can find this plate here for £1.49/$1.99 or you can buy the entire 5 piece set for £7.50/$9.99 and don't forget to use my code PLUS10 for 10% off your order.

Other items used in this mani: Barry M Black Diamond, Barry M Cotton and Barry M Silver Foil.

How perfect are these Sonic the Hedgehog wraps from Espionage Cosmetics. When I was younger Sonic on the Mega Drive was my most played game, and at one point was the only game I played, so these have been seriously on my lust list since the day they were announced and this is only 1 of 2 awesome, fully licensed Sonic sets that they do and I plan to wear the second lot next weekend, so look out for them.

In the mean time, if you can't wait to get your speedy little fingers on them, pop over to the shop and checkout before Dr. Robotnik tries to take over the nail art world, don't forget if you haven't gone through my referral link or used my code before, you can get 15% off an order over $25!

SnowGlobe, So Good Christmas Nails

Gah! The snow didn't arrive here today like it was supposed to but I cheered myself up with these pretties.

I did these using the Beauty Big Bang 11 stamping plate from their Christmas plate bundle. I double stamped the ugly jumper style pattern and then reverse stamped the angel in the snowglobe.

The plate is etched well and picks up really well, there are no imperfections either. There are 4 full size nail images on the plate and 6 smaller images perfect for reverse stamping.

Other items used: Born Pretty Store H006 Holo Polish, Barry M Cotton, Barry M Dead Heat and Moyou Black Knight.

You can find the 5 piece set here for £7.46/$9.99 or the plate on it's own here for £1.78/$2.39 and don't forget to use my code PLUS10 for 10% off your order.

Textured Snowflake Half-Moon

So, my laptop is being a bit of a dick, you'll probably have seen me say about this many-a-time if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, and it's the truth, it's being a proper dick. I'm having so much trouble with it and my failing brain doesn't help the matter, like buying the wrong SSD for it and only realising after voiding the warranty. But because of the laptop's dickishness, I haven't been able to post as much as I want to, so I have now reinstalled a few things so I can post a bit until I can get the right SSD and hopefully have a functioning laptop.

While I haven't been able to post I have been getting myself into the Christmas spirit, (not that I need much help doing so) by doing a few Christmas mani's. The first one I did were these textured snowflake half-moon's and I pretty much adore them.

Barry M Lady is one of my favourite seasonal polishes, a beautiful, textured white. It's perfect in my eyes, apart from the fact that they don't sell it anymore and I can't find anyone that does and mine is basically empty now *wah* I know that OPI Solitaire is a fairly similar polish and so I might just buy a bottle of that to tide me over.

I stamped using Moyou Black Knight and the Uberchic Christmas 01 plate. No topcoat.
