I don’t know what the deal is with the weird reindeer on the X-mas plate, but I decided to use it just for laughs.  For some reason, I couldn’t get a single reindeer to stamp right.  They didn’t want to come all the way off the stamper.  Could have been worse I guess.  I still think they were kinda cute. I love how well the santas went on. “Rapid Red” works just as well, if not better, than an actual Konad special polish.  They’re all a bit off center though.  XD

One of these days I’ll master centering the smaller designs…

I finally got the plate that had the fishnet design and I couldn’t wait to use it.  I decided to pair black with Urban Decay’s “Big Bang” because black and pink is one of my favorite combos and I’d been eyeballing “Big Bang” for about a month now.  I can’t believe it took me that long to finally break it out.  I got soooo many compliments at work on this one.  I really wish that it had worn better, it chipped really bad, really fast.  I feel like the Urban Decay polish just isn’t that great which is too bad because the colors are gorgeous.  Le sigh…

I don’t know where I went wrong with this manicure.  I went through the same ritual I always do when I paint my nails, but somewhere, something went terribly wrong.  I was really happy with it for the  first couple of days, but after that, it just literally started popping off.  I would go to scratch an itch, cross my arms, or get something out of my bag, and the whole thing would pop off one nail at a time in one solid piece.  Base coat and all.  It looked like I had on fake nails.  Weird…
