Christmas Mani 1: Green and Gold, and another contest to check out!

Good Morning Lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far!

Today I have the first of many Christmas Manis that I will be showing you over the next 2+ weeks.

Christmas is in alittle over 2 weeks?????
Good Grief!

Ok, back to the mani!

I started with Zoya "Veruschka" which is a gorgeous green shimmer from their Winter '09 Matte Velvet Collection.  I used 2 coats to get it nice and beautifully even.

Then I broke out the Konad!
I added M73 using China Glaze "Passion" to stamp with.

I then painted on a tip using Passion again.
I topped that with 2 coats of China Glaze "Cleopatra".

Sadly the gorgeous sparkle of Cleopatra and Veruschka just doesn't show up in this pic, Sorry guys!
I thought I had taken more pics of this, only to discover once I had taken it off, that nope, just this one!


Next, I'd like to draw your attention to an absolutely FAB giveaway!
Painted Lady Fingers has teamed up with Diamond Comsetics for an amazing giveaway!

Well that is all for today my wonderful readers!

I hope you all have an awesome day!
