Chinese stampings

My dad's lady is Chinese, and I wanted to do some nails for her specifically. I busted out the bundle monster plates and some gem stones to create this design. Sadly, I don't remember some of the colors I used, but from what I can tell, Winter Berry by China Glaze is the base and an old gold that literally doesn't have a name or a brand (I call it Closet Gold because I found it in a closet).

I think the top coat I used, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, is the cause of the weird look on the rhinestones. I recently found out that Wicked Fast does not look weird over rhinestones at all. Yay! Also, yes there is totally a kitty hair stuck to my finger. Try as I might, it's almost impossible to avoid this. 

Winter Berry is probably my favorite red. I don't own that many straight reds, but this color really is beautiful. What do you all think?

Thanks for reading! :)


  1. This is a pretty combo! I tagged you for the Liebster award:

  2. I love these nails, I could do without the rhinestones just cause they're not really my thing but I still love this mani!

    1. I agree. I'm not a huge rhinestone fan. I recently had to work with them a lot and found that they're just more trouble than their worth. :\
