NOTD: Lubu Swirls

Oh, I'm sooo excited about the upcoming China Glaze Spring 2010 Collection, called Up&Away! It will consist of 12 pastel cremes, including a mint green, a pastel lilac, two yellows and two greens =) I wouldn't be surprised if I'd order the whole collection!

Edit: Yay! See some swatches of the upcoming China Glaze Collection, Up&Away here:

I also want to get my hands on the OPI Hong Kong Collection, for sure. But I will always have a special place in my heart for China Glaze. =)
Today's manicure was actually supposed to be China Glaze Atlantis, but I had a last minute mind change and put on Lubu Heels. I was going to leave it that way, but I smudged two fingers. Lubu Heels takes forever to dry! Then I remembered gildedangel's vampy flowers color combination, which I liked very much, and stamped the nails using plate m56 and China Glaze Devotion.

With flash:

I think it looks pretty interesting when french tips are used this way. On my right hand they are placed more diagonally, because I still can't stamp with my left hand as well as I can with my right hand! Grrr.


  1. That is awesome! I love it, wish my nails were a bit shorter so I could use more of the stamps.

  2. Gorgeous mani, I am glad that my post inspired you!

  3. Another gorgeous manicure. You really can't do nothing wrong... =) Wonderful!

  4. simply the way u stamped the nail yip design.. u made a half moon.. i love ur nail shape

  5. It's sucha cretive way of using the french tip plates :) I'va always wanted some of those but never bought them as I rarely grow nails long enough to use I have an excuse \o/

  6. Thanks, everyone! I love that they could be used on the short nails, too =) But EvilAngel, they look gorgeous on the longer tips ;) I can't do them!
    Gildedangel, your manis always inspire me =) You do some rare combinations =)
    Aww, thank you Sasha, thriszha, chocoaddict and Kirsten =) Chocoaddict, you can also stamp them diagonally, or as half moon on the bottoms of the nails. They all look gorgeous!

  7. You make the best manicures. Colors, shape, execution... It's always inspiring (also I love this current nail length - for some reason, I find nails of this length to be the sexiest!)

  8. Thank you, Nathalie! =) Vertical designs make them appear longer, really! =D
    Thank you for the beautiful words =) ♥

  9. It's genius how you rotated the tip design and stamped it vertically on your nails! I would have never thought of that! Yay! I can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!

  10. Thanks for liking! The best thing about Konad is that you can rotate any design any way, and nobody can ask why =D
