Before & After: 'M' is for Mattress Mambo Magic


My alphabet Llama Nails challenge is now up to 'M', and for my M, I decided to do some nail art on the beautiful Mattress Mambo by polished components.

I love vampy colors and I love flakies, so of course I love this polish:

When I was staring lovingly at this, I couldn't help but wonder what it would look like with a gradient of Barielle's Elle's Spell on it:

Elle's Mattress Spell?

I love how it's almost like the little flakes are snowing down into a big pile of larger flakes at the bottom. :)

I wore it like that for a while, but then decided I wanted a stamp on it, so I used my go-to China Glaze Passion and Bundle Monster plate BM12:

Oh, man, I don't have words for how much I love this mani. It has a wintery antique-y feel like some sort of turn of the century jeweled pin. Or maybe that's just me, lol--but I certainly do love it. :)

Thanks for taking a look, and please check out the other 'M' manicures by the other Llama-ettes, linked below.



  1. I love how this turned out! It looks so great. I get the antique feel from it! :-)
