#AwesomeNailsAreAwesome Guest Week! Featuring Marta of Chit Chat Nails

Good Evening!! 

  Yeah.. I have A LOT of awesome posts lined up for you. I really wanted to make sure you were kept really good company while I was away. As always these girls DELIVERED! I scheduled Miss Marta of Chit Chat Nails on the same day as Carolina of Colores de Carol because these girls are SUPA close and they always do all these cute twin posts so I figured, why not pair them on LTHP?

**EDIT** Both Marta and Carolina have been with me since, pretty much, the beginning. This guest week would not be complete without them.
Hello Lovely Ladies!!!
I have been asked to do a guest post by one my very first nail-art gurus whom I started to follow when I first learned about nail art/nail stamping; back in the day when I first started my little blog!  This is unreal!!!! *jumps up and down to relieve just a little bit of tension and nervous excitement*
My name is Marta, and I run a little Canadian blog called ChitChat Nails.  When Cristina asked me to do a guest post for her, I nearly fell off my rocker (and having just turned 31 years old, it is not so unfeasible to imagine me on a rocker ;) ).  I asked Cristina if there was anything she would request/like for this guest post, and - with her good sense of humour (we spell humour with an "ou" in Canada ;) - she joked "do a manicure that reminds you of me".  Well, joke it may have been but I do not turn down a challenge ;)  

Cristina's designs continue to be bright and playful and many of her manicure have made me want to embrace shades other than my comfort-zone nudes ;).  At the risk of sounding overly cheesy (though who doesn't like cheese,... really!) I will stand firm and say that many of Cristina's manicures helped me discover the wonders of nail-art/nail-stamping, gave me inspiration AND  helped me build my own 'wings' to fly in this wonderful realm of nail-art.  These butterfly wings are symbolic of that :D Thank you Cristina... I hope you, and your Lovely Readers, like this look.

I started out with two coats of NFUG "Fantastica" over an aqua base.  I wore this manicure for two days and when the tips started to show wear I added onto it ;)

Using the saran-wrap method I added  Color Club "Edie" and Revlon "Sassy"
I then stamped using Mash Nail Art Black and Nail Craze plate NC-1.
For the final touch I added some green glequins (as dubbed by the Nailasaurus) from the Born Pretty Store... because who doesn't like a little bit of glitter ;)

I hope you all liked this look.  I am happy to have met so many wonderful Ladies (and sources of inspiration) in this blogging community.  Cristina continues to be one of them!
