Guest Post by Copycat Claws

6 January 2015

Hi Everyone! While I'm away on vacation, I am super lucky to have several bloggers guest post for me! And to finish my line-up of guest posts is Serene from Copycat Claws. I discovered Serene's blog a few months ago and every since I have had a major crush on her beautiful blog! I am always so excited to discover other Canadian bloggers! She seriously has beautiful nails and pictures and of course she is very talented at all kinds of nail art! I am always so inspired every time I read new posts on her blog. I am thrilled that she has prepared a guest post for my blog so without further ado... here it is!

Hey there!  For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Serene.  I blog over at Copycat Claws and I was so over the moon excited when Hetal asked me to do a guest post for her while she goes on a well-deserved vacation.  My first ever guest post!  Woohoo!  I absolutely drool over Hetal’s swatches  and her nail art so I hope I don’t disappoint if you’ve come here expecting her.  Since Hetal is going to be off in the warmth of India while leaving her fellow Canadians like me, in the midst of full blown winter, I wanted to do something warm and summer-y to remind the rest of us that winter will eventually give in to spring and all its colors. 

I do a lot of stamping over on my blog and I love to play with color so for this I started with a silver holographic base of Color Club Harp On It. Over Harp On It, I randomly applied the colored jellies from the 10.1 Polish Icing collection to create a sparkly rainbow landscape.

I stamped the butterflies from Messy Mansion MM42 using Mundo de Unas Black and topped it off with HK Girl top coat for a glossy finish.

Then, simply because I like the look of mattified holos, I added a coat of OPI Matte Top Coat to matte the final look. 

I think the matte finish sort of dulled the final product giving it a more subtle look. I love how using a simple matte top coat can completely change the final result. 

So what do you think? Glossy or matte? And is anyone already looking forward to spring as much as me?

Thanks for looking! And thank you again to My Life in Turquoise for allowing to put a little bit of myself into her awesome blog. Hopefully you lovely folks liked what I shared. If you'd like to check me out any time, you can follow any of my social media links to find me.

Glossy or matte?! I don't know about you but I am having a hard time deciding!! I love both the finishes for very different reasons. And yes, I think we are looking forward to Spring since this cold-wintery weather is just so blah! And as I mentioned, don't you just love her nails, skills and photography?! Thank you so much Serene for preparing this amazing guest post for my blog!
