Orly ~ Meet me under the Misteltoe

Orly ~ Meet me under the Misteltoe
A very dark green with extra green and subtle blue microglitter

It’s December and time for Christmassy colours. I decided to try out this dark green Orly. After the first coat I was a bit worried, because it was being very difficult to apply evenly. However, the second coat sorted that out and it looked smooth and nice. Take a look:

It’s rarely that Orly let me down, so I was happy but not totally surprised that it turned out this nice.

I really want to improve my stamping skills and the only way to do that is to practice. I picked Konad’s M3 and Konad’s own white stamping polish. It actually went quite well compared to last time. The stamps went on nicely and look quite crisp. 

I really like this mani, and I also got quite a lot of compliments for it. :)
