China Glaze Angel Wings & Glistening Snow

Hello :)  Today I have another Christmas themed mani to show you.  This mani was inspired by some wrapping paper that I saw at Big Lots a few years back - the gold and silver color combo.  I'm sure they're still around but I haven't seen those lately ...

I started off with 2 coats of China Glaze Angel Wings - a clear base with golden fine holographic glitter, the silver stamping polish was A England Excalibur - a silver metallic; On my ring finger, 2 coats of China Glaze Glistening Snow - a clear base with silver fine holographic glitter, the red stamping polish was China Glaze Cranberry Splash and the plate image was from DRK-B on all nails.  This image looks a bit like poinsettias, don't you think?  Originally, I was going to use China Glaze 2030 (my go-to gold stamping polish) but it didn't show up very well on the Glistening Snow, that's why I used Cranberry Splash instead !!  All the ChG's that I used are from their latest 2012 Holiday Joy Collection.  Let's take a look at these photos :)

A coat of Gelous before stamping since Angel Wings and Glistening Snow were rough then topcoat.  However, the silver images still got wrinkled even with Gelous before stamping!!
I bought the XL stamper from eBay (not affiliated) and received the package yesterday.  So I had to try it out for this mani, it worked very well.  I really do love it but the stamp part always comes off when I clean/wipe it after each stamp, any suggestion?  I wonder if I could super glue it ...

What do you think?  Thank you for dropping by :)
