It’s week two of the December N.A.I.L. Linkup and the theme is shopping. If you’re like me, the word shopping in December means a mad scramble to finish your holiday shopping list! Luckily, I got most of my shopping done on friday. The only time I ever really visit Kohl’s is Christmastime… and what amazing deals they have! Then they give you Kohls CASH which is icing on the cake! I got gifts for everyone on my list and now I’ve even got gifts on my nails! Let’s take a look at my shopping nails for #NAILLINKUP…..
The wrapping paper and bows came out great! They’re actually decals that I made. I’ve shown you how to make decals here, but I’ve never tried it with stamping before. So basically, I stamped the gifts onto a plastic baggie using my MoYou Festive 03 plate. Then I painted on top of the gift stamps with green/gold/blue and then I topcoated it. Once it was dry (overnight) I peeled it off the baggie, flipped it over, et voila! A pretty little painted present! I got the idea from Indian Ocean Polish’s blog. Everytime I login to pinterest I go ga-ga over her decals so I just had to try them out! Here’s her tutorial- you should check it out!
I’m also happy to wear red again. I’m loving red more and more lately! Shown here is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Cherry Red. I’m really impressed with it’s formula!
Be sure to check out the other girls’ designs for the Linkup- see the blue guy below! If you’d like to join in, here’s more info on the linkup…

So cute! Gaah. I just remembered I have to sets of home-made decals just sitting in my polish drawer. WHEN WILL I WEAR THEM. Too many unswatched polishes!
Wear them girl!!! 🙂
WHENNNNN! So much polish, so little time!
you might have to start posting on weekends again 🙂 lol
…i actually agree. but i don’t want to agree :-p
we should plan a giant NO BUY and force ourselves to try out untrieds!
I LOVE the bows! So cute!
Thanks!! I actually did two with blue bows and two with green. But i had a temporary loss of brain function and put both blue on one hand… and both green on the other hand. Oopsy!
these are so adorable! i’ve never tried making my own decals before but these are so cute i might have to give them a go
Thnx… you should try them…its kinda fun to make a bunch while you’re watchin tv or somethin 🙂
Yay! These are amazing! Are the dots part of the stamp or did you add them? (Either way I might add dots to a decal in the future!).
thanks for the inspiration! Im loving your blog!
The dots were on the stamp already 🙂
These are so gorgeous! I love all the detail!
This combo, with presents and red looks so festive, but not too generic, love it!
