Creative musings in bright colors

My second guest blogger is Julie from Short & Sweet in Texas. I have been following Julie’s blog for some time, and I just love it! She does incredible designs, and is not afraid to change her nail shape and length (personally, I would be terrified). For your viewing pleasure, Julie put together some beautiful subtle winter stamping and a glitter accent. I’ll need to remember these in the desert in Israel!


Hello Flight of Whimsy followers! I’m Julie of Short & Sweet in Texas
and I’m very excited to be guest posting for Eva today. I tossed
around quite a few ideas while trying to come up with something for
this post; finally while looking through my stamping plates on a whim
I found a snowflake design I’ve never used before and I felt inspired.

While some of us may be ready for warmer weather already, I haven’t
had nearly enough. Winter is my favorite season; I love getting to
pull my sweaters out of hiding, drinking hot beverages, and snuggling
with my hubby and cat on the couch in the evenings. Anyway, once I
found my snowflake inspiration I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
For this manicure I used Essie Chinchilly (one of my absolute favorite
polishes) as a base color and stamped my snowflake design using BM-323
and Rimmel London I Lilac You. Originally when I bought I Lilac You I
was incredibly disappointed with it on its own, however I recently
discovered that it’s great for stamping! It’s also a perfect
compliment to Chinchilly.

On my accent nail I used Brucci Jessica’s Wedding Bells. It hardly
showed up at all but I also added a coat of Revlon Celestial FX on top
of Jessica’s Wedding Bells because I wanted a little extra sparkle
(not that the Brucci needed it. JWB is a stunning silver metallic all
by itself).

  1. I’ve always failed at using normal polish colors for stamping- I seem to only be able to manage with ultra-pigmented special stamping polish. Maybe this year I’ll try to master it!

  2. Julie, you have a great eye. Your color combinations are great!

  3. Cute design! Eva, I’ve tagged you in a tag called ‘spread the love.’ check it out! 😀

  4. […] Also….I have a guest post on Flight of Whimsy! Check out it here! […]

  5. Lovely! I love the colour combo and the stamping 🙂
