ABC Challenge 'X': Xmas!

I've been getting rather off track for the ABC Challenge, but luckily it is taking a week's break this Friday for Thanksgiving, so I'll be able to catch up next week! Here are my X for Xmas nails - although all the blue and snowflakes made it more winter than Christmas! Do have a look at the full post for more photos.

I started out with Cadillacquer 'Awakening' (which is exclusive to the Hypnotic Polish store), a beautiful pastel blue holographic with bright purple shimmer. It is quite sheer, I needed three coats for it to be opaque enough, and even then I had to do a thick third coat. And sadly there has been almost no sunshine these few days, so I could not get any photos showing its holographic sparkle!

Then over this I added patterns from MoYou London's 'Festive 30' stamping plate, using MoYou London's 'White Knight' stamping polish.

I think this might have looked better with squared nails, and I have been considering going back to that shape for a while, but I keep returning to rounded nails anyway.
