The challenge for Greed was to show off your "bling" (I hate that word!) nails, so anything sparkily. This is butterLONDON Lovely Jubbly with Zoya Juno as underwear. What I didn't realize about Lovely is that she stands all on her own, no unders needed, you can't even see Juno through under all that glitter! It just takes one coat of Lovely to do this too, I'm wearing one coat everywhere but my ring finger and there's barely a noticeable difference in person.
Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Butter London Nail Foundation. Top coats are Gelous & Seche Vite.

I can't believe it's been a month since I posted! Here I was thinking it was like two weeks or something. You wouldn't believe the backlog of manis I have to post!
This is the next in the Seven Deadly Sins series, Pride. The challenge for Pride was show of the art technique you've always wanted to try, that you're best at, or just something that promises to make the Nail Muggles think yer a wizard. This is 2-3 layers of Zoya Ray, then a dabbed layer of China Glaze Luxe and Lush, the stamp I used is Vivid Lacquer's VL022 with Zoya Dove. There's a layer of SV after each layer following the last layer of Ray, and one layer of Gelous after the flakie. Then to top it all off, I added a layer of matte top coat. It came out pretty cool, I think, but I'd go lighter on the flakie if I do it again. The thumb came out pretty prefect.
Base coats are Orly Nailtrition and Butter London Nail Foundation. Top coats are Seche Vite and NYC Matte Me Crazy.
