Winter Holiday Challenge - Reindeer and Sleigh

Wow how time flies... We're already on day 6 of the Winter Holiday Challenge and today I have for you  some reindeer and sleigh mani!

For this mani I started with somewhat of a legendary polish. This is Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily.
Aqua lily is an amazingly beautiful aqua colored polish with pink shimmer. It looks like a little pool in the middle of a dreamland forest, right where the sun comes out of the trees and reflect it's dreamy rays upon the water. Sounds a bit corny, I know, but Aqua Lily really is as glorious as everyone says. Formula is perfection, opacity is achieved in two thin coats, drying time is perfect and the finish is just gorgeous.

To create my winter dreamland over this beauty I started with a bit of a snowy background. I stamped the flakes using DRK-III plate and a mix of Aqua Lily and a white polish. I added a second layer of a slight darker blue using a mix of Chirality Cu2+ and white polishes.
I then used Bunny Nails and Bundle Monster's stamping plates. The deers are from Bunny Nails HD plates and i used China Glaze Mahogany Magic to stamp with, the slate is from Bundle Monster's plate number 321 but i managed to mess the stamping up so I had to go over it with a small art brush. The gold polish is China Glaze Passion and the red is Chirality Polish - Bloodshot.
I added the golden strings with a brush and China Glaze Passion and with a small make up pad I dubbed a few touches of the Aqua Lily + White mixture at the tips of my nails.

I am quite happy with the results. What do you think?
