Ming Dynasty

My nails were bugging the hell out of me, so I cut and filed them down tonight. Whew! Much better. I decided to pretty them up afterwards and went with a Ming vase motif, which I've wanted to do ever since I got a hold of this really nice blue from Pure Ice; the name escapes me at the moments, oops. Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with how these turned out since I kinda flew through 'em. I just used the Pure Ice blue, which I need to find the name for, and a white creme polish. Simple.

Baby, It's Cold Outside

I wish these would have photographed better.. they look so pretty IRL. Anyway, I based these on a christmas ornament my grandmother(on my dad's side) used to have. It was a frosty white, traditional orb ornament, white blue glitter snowflakes all over it. I loved it.

Polishes used:
Pure Ice, A List
Orly, Halley's Comet

One of the new polishes I got was A List.. it's a really pretty pearly white with the faintest tinge of baby blue. It's pretty opaque, but you have to be careful because it can show brushstrokes. Otherwise, I really like it.
