First Halloween manicure!
Subtle Coral and Gold
I’ve been looking for a gold stamping polish so I got Sally Hansen Golden-I since it was reasonably priced. It’s a nice polish and worked perfectly for this manicure, but not as opaque as I’d like for a stamping polish. Still, I love how subtle this is. The base is Julep Sasha. Plates are: Cheeky CH 37 (thumb), Bundle Monster BM 323 (index), Bundle Monster BM 312 (middle), Bundle Monster BM 310 (ring), Bundle Monster BM 317 (pinky). There’s a flaming basketball stamp on BM 312. I absolutely need to use this!
Breast cancer awareness nails
If the NFL can support breast cancer awareness, I can too! Sorry my cuticles are looking rough today, I better put on some lotion. This is Essie Miami Nice and Konad special polish for the stamping. Stamp is Bundle Monster BM321.
I’m on oncology for my internal medicine rotation in a month, so something similar might make a comeback. Gotta support the girls 😀
Greek inspired stamping art
This stamping plate (Bundle Monster BM 321) reminded me of a motif from ancient Greece. I ended up going with blue (Ibiza by Zoya) over gold (Mystic Gold by Jade). I topped it off with a matte topcoat (Matte Finish Topcoat by Butter London). I think I would have preferred a white base with a gold stamp. The problem is that I don’t have a good gold nail polish to stamp with. Does anyone have any recommendations?
And if you’re looking for a bit of entertainment, and have as ridiculous of a sense of humor as me, check out a rehash of one of my favorite twitter accounts, Billy Nye Tho.

I have quite a few manicure pics taken with my iphone before I started actually photographing them. I loved this manicure – it’s Zoya Rica and Zoya Heidi and Bundle Monster plate BM 313. It’s really subtle and was hard to pick up with the camera, which is what I think I love about it! Is this plate a giraffe fur or turtle shell print?
