China Glaze Cheers To You and marbled China Glaze Liquid Leather and Platinum Silver with Orly Passion Fruit. The manicure was finished with one coat of Seche Vite.
Finally getting around to posting this. I very much like this blue and have been having fun with my new Bundle Monster plates.
I painted three coats of China Glaze First Mate and then added Konad plate design m65 on my pinky fingers and on the rest used Bundle Monster Plate bm203 all with Konad special polish in White. I used one coat of Seche Vite for the top coat.

EDIT TO ORIGINAL POST:
I painted three coats of China Glaze Below Deck and sponged China Glaze DV8 across the middle. I then used Bundle Monster plate bm217 with Konad Special Pastel Violet Stamping Polish and painted one coat of Seche Vite to seal the deal.

Alright, I do know that I have a healthy self-esteem but I don't really like to brag. However, I was so excited with my new venture in nail art, that I was very proud of myself and hope you guys get a charge out of these manicures as much as I do!
As you know from my posts, I have recently entered a nail painting contest (vote for me here). As I was reading through some posts, I came across a manicurist who mentioned water decals that she made herself. Here is her blog, BTW, she has great landscape nails! I had to look into it myself to see if it was easy or hard. After getting some help from the Internet and having some inspiration due to an upcoming girls weekend, I decided to go for it. Water decal paper was a bit difficult to track down, but I found it and am excited to show you the results.
The back story on the following manicures is this: a group of my girlfriends have adopted Spirit Animals that either capture our heart, speak to us in some way and in general create an all over cheesy feeling. So I decided I would treat my friends to a manicure on our weekend getaway and make decals with their Spirit Animal. Here are the results!
Painted with a base coat of Zoya Sienna and Konad Special Polish in Coral Blue with Konad plate m65.
Painted with three coats of China Glaze Sea Spray and using Konad Special Stamping Polish in Coral Blue and Bundle Monster Plate MB-209.
Painted with three coats of Zoya Areej and stamped with Konad Special Stamping Polish in Black and Bundle Monster Plate BM-212.
Painted with three coats of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise followed by a coat of China Glaze White Cap and stamped with Konad Special Stamping Polish in Black and White with Bundle Monster Plate BM-205 .
I know he might not speak to you as a Spirit Animal, but he did apparently call to my friend, Erin. Sometimes odd things happen, but he is glorious! Painted with three coats of Zoya Mira and on the ring finger glitter added from LA Splash Cosmetics in Dry Ice and stamped with Konad Special Polish in White and Black using Bundle Monster Plate BM-208
Each manicure was topped of with the special water decal seen and a coat of Seche Vite as the top coat and sealer.

For the Rainbow nails I painted a base coat color with two coats of China Glaze Cheers To You and marbled with the following colors: China Glaze Papaya Punch, Electric Pineapple, and Paper Chasing, Zoya Sarah and Yasmeen.
Over all nails I used one coat of Seche Vite.
I painted a base color of China Glaze Digital Dawn with two coats. I then sponged in the middle of the nail China Glaze DV8 and on the tips L8R G8R. On top I added Bundle Monster plate BM-203 with Konad Special Stamping Polish in Black and finished the look with one coat of Seche Vite.
I first painted three coats of Sally Hansen HD Hi Definition Nail Color in Lite. I added some yellow glitter to the top half of my nail and once the manicure was dry, I added OPI Turquoise Shatter and painted a thin line of China Glaze Platinum Silver to delineate the line between the color blocking. I painted one coat of Seche Vite to seal.
I painted three coats on all fingers but my ring of China Glaze In The Limelight. I dotted each green nail and used a base of China Glaze Blue Iguana for my ring finger and then added glitter from Yofi in Caribbean Crush. I coated the entire manicure with a top coat of Seche Vite.
