Snow - #WNAC2014

This post should have gone up yesterday (this has been happening quite often and I do apologise but evaluation season's in town).

It's another one for the super cool and fun WNAC challenge - this month being sparkle the general theme.
Snow was the prompt for yesterday and I had another go at stamping, from a new angle: double stamping.

What? You can't see the double stamping? I guess it's 'cause I used very similar colours - light grey and light blue :(
But I still loved how this beauty turned out, specially 'cause the stamping came out spot on! ;)

swatch kiko magnetic No. 705 emerald turquoise

I started by applying two coats of Kiko Magnetic Emerald Turquoise (No.705) (remember how much of a trend these were some years back?).
Isn't the effect gorgeous on its own? :)

I then applied some sparkle to each nail, using Golden Rose 3D Glaze No.11.
Isn't it a beauty? One coat will give you this discreet effect - I advise sponging this one for a more in-your-face effect, 'cause this one tends to need quite a few coats fot that.

I then used Kiko Light Blue (No.340) and Kiko Gray (No.328) for the double stamping and my Born Pretty No.01 plate.

How do you like this look?
Next time, I think I should try some advanced stamping for real - what do you think?

Hugs & Kissies,

    I love the idea of using the magnetic polish as the base - so pretty yet subtle!

  2. Very wintery. The snowflakes look great.
