GOT: Glitter

Golden Oldie Thursday is here again and today the prompt was glitter, I chose Barry M's Jewel Britannia which I got during August 2012. I think it was something to do with the Queen's Jubilee. This is a glitter gradient over a black base.

Nails: Wedding Guest

I went to a wedding during the summer as a guest and these are the nails I wore for it:

And what would a wedding post be without this gorgeous flower bride's bouquet.
She made it herself too!

Nails: Blue Confetti

I started these nails off by using two blue polishes using the 'bag dab' / saran wrap / cling film method which was very effective but then I used L'Oreal's Confetti top coat over the top which made the base not show up so it was a waste of effort!

Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster 306 (BM306)

Review-Bundle-Monster-306-BM306

This stamping plate is from the third Bundle Monster set, from 2012. It is backed with branded lining to stop it from being sharp. This is useful, without it it is easy to slice open your fingers and palms which I have been known to do accidentally in the past with other stamping plates.

On this stamping plate there are 4 full nail images and 2 small single images, all of these stamped well. I like the candy design quite a bit and you can see the designs I have done using this plate below:
