Christmas Decoration Mani Featuring Ejiubas Stamping Plate

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 5 Comments A+ a-

10 days till Christmas, and I finally created my first (and probably the only) Christmas mani this year. 

I started off with A-England Bridal Veil for all my nails. Then I stamped a festive swirly pattern on Ejiubas EJB-03 plate using Hit the Bottle Paint the Town Violet (purple) or Poison Apple (red). I turned the plate over, as this plate is double-sided, and made stamping decals out of few different small images using Hit the Bottle To Have and to Gold, coloured in with red and green. For pinkie and thumb, I decided to stamp snowflake pattern using Urban Nail Art White. I added gold bullions to represent hanging chains, and finished off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.


I did a review on this Ejiubas plate before on this post, and here are the links to the shop:

  3. Ejiubas Website: www.ejiubas.com (Worldwide shipping; No discount code)
I've had this 'hanging decoration' mani idea for quite a while, and glad I finally got to do this. I should probably have used green instead of purple, but all in all I'm happy with the look.

今年初めて(そしておそらく唯一?)のクリスマスネイルを作成してみました。出来上がりはこちら。

Finished product, with HK Girl topcoat

ベースは全爪 A-England Bridal Veil。Ejiubas EJB-03プレートから渦巻き模様をHit the Bottle Paint the Town Violet (紫) または Poison Apple (赤)でスタンプ。プレートを裏返して、別の面のさまざまな小さい柄をHit the Bottle To Have and to Goldでスタンプして赤と緑で色付けし、decal作成。親指と小指には雪の結晶の柄をUrban Nail Art Whiteでスタンプ。デコレーションが上から吊り下がっているような感じでゴールドのブリオンを置き、仕上げはGlisten & Glow HK Girlトップコート。

使用ポリッシュはこちら。

Here are the parts I used. You can see there are plenty of cute smaller images on side B.
I had a hard time choosing which to use

ちなみにこれが今回使った柄。B面の方は特に、可愛い小さな柄が所狭しと詰まっているので、使い甲斐のあるプレートじゃないかと思います。

I wonder what's in the sock... it looks heavy :D

このチェーンでモノがぶら下がっているような感じのネイル、ずっとやりたいと思ってアイデアを温めていました。3バージョンぐらい作って試行錯誤してようやくこれに落ち着きました。色は紫よりも緑にした方がクリスマスっぽさが出たかもしれませんが、HTBのグリーンは本当に発色が鮮やかなので、ベースのスタンプに使ってしまうとその上のdecalが目立たなくなる恐れがあるということで紫に。だいぶ落ち着いた感じになっちゃいましたが、まあいっか^_^;

I'm so relieved I got to create a Xmas mani. I'm not very good at doing holiday theme mani to be honest

というわけでクリスマスネイル、ようやく作成できてホッとしています。ハロウィンもそうですが、ホリデーもののネイルって苦手なのですよ・・・。全世界のネイルアーティストさんたちが同じ時期に一斉にホリデーネイルを披露してくるわけで、誰ともデザインを被りたくないカシスとしてはやりにくいのです。でも他にはあまりないクリスマスデザインができたかな、とちょっと満足です。

This is a wonderful looking manicure, I like the colors that you used even the purple nail polish sometimes it's good to add a different color to a manicure to make it pop up and that is what happens to this greate manicure. =)

I like this just as it is. The purple adds a touch of elegance and is very unique while still fitting the overall theme. It works for me.

Cute holiday stamping! I celebrated Christmas in Ibiza this year. I decided to pamper myself a little bit , and visited international nails salon. Moreover, they offered a holiday discount. So, I got a perfect Christmas spa manicure at reasonable price!
