Wrapping Paper

Hi there!

I spotted a package wrapped underneath a charity donation tree that inspired this manicure...

My nails painted with China Glaze - Ruby Pumps and Emerald Sparkle.
Stamped with China Glaze - Passion and Konad image plate M60.

I almost decided against sharing this design because the picture shows and magnifies every flaw. Yes, the image is patchy and uneven, and the top coat definitely smeared it. But it really doesn't look that bad in person!

Anyway, I painted 2 coats of Ruby Pumps (red) and Emerald Sparkle (green). I stamped using Passion, one of my favorite stamping polishes. Then I added a coat of China Glaze's Fast Forward Top Coat.

Do you use/have you used this top coat? This is my second time using it, and I'm not sure I like it. It dries with an annoying smell that doesn't dissipate for hours after application :-/

Until next time...


  1. I love it! I even remember that we used to have a wrapping paper like that (red).

  2. I had wrapping paper like that, too:) It was my favorite, lol! Great idea for a manicure!

  3. I think this looks great; I love it!! :D I just may have to do this (but by hand as I don't have any stamping thingies). Lovely!!

  4. I think they look awesome! I love that stamp, I like the thick and thin stripes. I want to do this with some fun argyle-ish colors.. but I don't think I have this stamp. :( Looks great tho! :)
