Vacation Guest Post - Marta from ChitChat nails!

Oh my gosh you guys! I have loved Marta's blog ChitChat Nails ever since I discovered it and when I thought of bloggers to ask for guestposts Marta immediately was one of the girls I thought of. She created this gorgeous guest post that I am very proud to present to you, so enjoy! Don't forget to click pictures to enlarge :). I sure know I am going to way more with saran wrap!

Hello Lovely Ladies,
I am so humbled to be here with a guest post.  My name is Marta and I run a little Canadian nail-art blog called ChitChat Nails.  I admire Deborah's layered manicures and the delightful close up shots of gorgeous shades and sophisticated stamping.  Deborah asked me for this post waaaay back in July.  I was such a keener to get my post in to her that I worked on it right away, knowing full well that she wouldn't need it until September.  I used the merging of two seasons (summer and autumn) as my inspiration, I hope you like it *fingers crossed*

I started out dabbing my tips with saran wrap, mixing Cult Nails Vicious and Cult Nails Feel Me Up (tutorial for this method can be found here: http://www.chitchatnails.com/2012/07/29/saran-wrap-tutorial/ )
I then added a thin coat of Catricle Million Dollar Baby as well as one thin coat of China Glaze White Cap.  I am an avid nail-stamper and I knew something had to be added to this look ;)  I stamped the butterfly with Konad White and BM-303.  One coat of Seche Vite completes the look.

I hope you liked this funky-french twist.
Do you have a favourite season of the year?
Do you paint your nails with season-appropriate (if there even is such a thing) colors?



  1. Awesome! I am going to recreate this in the autumn!
    Thank you for guestposting <3

  2. This mani SCREAMS fall! She makes every mani so special, I can't quite describe it. Even tho it's not a new technique sth never seen before, she always knows how to add that little something ;) Love the color choice!

  3. Yay Marta for this awesome awesome guestpost! I don't understand actually why there are only so little comments about it... I still LOVE this as much as when you send it to me!

  4. This is gorgeous! Love it!
