Previous Design: Konad Stamping Mani with OPI Designer De Better

This is a design I did in January 2012, and I think it was actually only my second or third attempt at using stamps. I love how it turned out, the flowers almost look like lace. :)

The stamp I used is actually a cluster of two or three flowers, so I alternated taking a stamp of the entire design and taking a stamp with just one flower at a time to get the coverage I wanted. I love using the actual Konad polish to stamp because it's got great opacity. This picture was also taken before I used a topcoat, so the flowers have a nice matte look to them.

Previous Design: OPI Skull & Glossbones Tape Mani

This design has a special place in my heart, because it was actually my first attempt at nail art from way back in September 2011. :') It's a tape mani, and I got the design from Nailside. I really should send her a message or something, since her tutorials are what gave me the confidence to start trying nail art designs!

Sally Hansen Winter Mani

Sally Hansen Winter Tape Mani
 So this is a winter themed tape mani I put together the other day. I wanted seasonal, but I feel like it's too soon for full-out Christmas nails... Agree or disagree?
