St. Catherine's Day! || China Glaze Lemon Fizz

In France, "On St. Catherine's Day, it is customary for unmarried women to pray for husbands, and to honour women who've reached 25 years of age but haven't married - called "Catherinettes" in France. Catherinettes send postcards to each other, and friends of the Catherinettes make hats for them - traditionally using the colours yellow (faith) and green (wisdom), often outrageous - and crown them for the day." - from Wikipedia
This tradition disappeared in time... BUT one of my "aunt" knows it very well and she made me a St. Catherine's hat!!! (I turned 25 last month remember?) Every hat is unique and personalized. So here's mine ^^

I was really surprised! I didn't know the hat-part of the St. Catherine's day, just the postcards exchange that my friends and I made when we were young.

Fail to OK... || China Glaze Light As Air and other pastel shades

Friday night, I went to the concert of 30 Seconds to Mars in Lille! YEAAAAH!!!! ♥ I wanted to see them for ages, and I finally got the chance (and it was free :P). What an AMAZING show!!! I met up one of my friends who lives near Lille in the concert hall - I can't believe that I hadn't seen her for more than a year :'( - and we spent the next day together at her home.
As I knew that she was interested in stamping, I put in my bag some of my stamping tools, so that she could try before buying =) We both painted our nails with China Glaze Light As Air and stamped Bundle Monster designs (mine was on BM 201) with black stamping polish.
However, my stamping didn't go well :(   I don't know why, but the designs had never been printed entirely, there were blanks in the lines... I tried to fill the blanks but I didn't have the appropriate tools to do it (I used a safety pin :/)
So this morning, now I was back home, I used my Flexbrush Black to redraw the lines. Some …

Probably my best nail art ever! || China Glaze For Audrey

First try with my BM plates! So I decided to use two designs ^^

I applied two coats of China Glaze For Audrey and stamped with Bundle Monster plate 224. I used Seche Vite to fix the designs.
I have to say that I'm in love with CG For Audrey!!! ♥ First I like the name :P One of my best friends is named Audrey so... =) Then, the color.... I don't know what to say... I LOOOOOOOVE it!!!! I can't believe I was stuck with light pink polishes all my life... This turquoise color is so wonderful!!!!
I'm still impressed by Seche Vite! I mean, this top coat really deserves its frenchy name, it really sèche vite!!! And my nails look so shiny, I love it!!! :D
I didn't expect this mani to be so great, lol XD
