Orly- Meet Me Under The Mistletoe and Konad M20

Hello again:-) Thanks for stopping in! I thought I would do a very Christmasy mani using one of the most beautiful greens I've ever seen! Meet Me Under The Mistletoe is what a pine tree would look like if it grew diamonds on it:-) It just sparkles and shines like no other! Just to add to the festive feel I added a vine on an accent nail with some berries and a rhinestone.

Again these pictures are all in different types of lighting.
MMUTM went on surprisingly thin, it was very watery and I had to use a very thin coat so it didn't run all over. That was quickly corrected on the second coat that covered any bald spots. I ended up deciding to do a third coat to add some depth, but that might not be necessary depending on how your coats go on. The dry time was kind of slow and annoying, but so worth it!
For my stamp i used a viney flower pattern on my Konad M20 plate. I was going to do all my nails but I thought this looked a little more understated and pretty. I used Sinful colors white for the stamp, and Chanel Dragon for the berries. I did the berries over the stamp with my dotting tool. A coat of Seche Vite to seal it all up and that's that!
 This stamping stuff is so much fun! I already have like a million plans in my head for combinations of colors and patterns.


  1. I love this color. I'm really getting into greens. Do you have glittering garland to compare them?

  2. I don't have both but i did see a comparison here:
    I hope this helps! I still havent seen a comparison to CG Emerald Sparke either, but it's on my wishlist!
