Today’s nails are inspired by these cute ones by Melcisme – when I saw these, I just knew I had to recreate them!
- Maybelline – Brick Shimmer
- Rimmel – Bewitch
- Essie – Bordeaux
- White Striper
I think today’s mani came out really cool, and it was surprisingly easy to do! I know that there are nail vinyls out there with these patterns on them, but I don’t have those, so I did my own version.
I just cut out a circle in a piece of tape, stuck that on the nail and created the ornament pattern by “filling it in” with a striping polish. When you remove the tape, the pattern that you created is going to have a roundness to them that creates the illusion of it being ornaments.
I had this french tip santa hat in my ultimate santa hat guide from last year, and this year I paired with a silver glitter tip.
Today’s mani is of the more abstract kind. I gotta say, it’s getting harder and harder to come up with new christmas-related nail art without repeating myself, but hopefully I’ll come up with a few more designs 😉
I went a little crazy.. A little crazy with sequins.. And I love how my sequin christmas tree came out! I do wish I’d not made the snow on the ground, though.. It just seemed appropriate to have some of the snowfall stick on the ground.
Much in relation to yesterday’s post, sometimes it’s nice to have a break from ‘traditional’ christmas manis, so I’ve extended that break for one more day with these pink snowflakes. I’ve seen more and more pink used for christmas manicures/polishes, but it has not reached the ‘obligatory christmas color’ status for me yet.
If you’re sick of seeing vampy, christmas-colored nail designs, then I’ve got just the right mani for you! It’s a bright, mint colored mani that’s still really appropriate for the holiday season.
I love to find new ways to do semi-naked nail manis. Well, almost-naked since I always use a sheer nude pink as my base. This time, I put a festive spin on it with these christmas tree branches. Super pretty and super easy to do! I have a video of this going up at a later point – I just have to edit it 😉 I you wanna see that and my other videos (including two new christmas ones!), you can check them out here.
I wanted to recreate this mani that I saw on Pinterest, but I don’t have the stamping plate with the deer on it, so I tried my hand at hand painting a deer for this mani. All things considered, I think it turned out pretty decently.
Last year I really got into snowy french tips, so of course I did them this year as well. This year, they remind me a little bit of snowglobes with the snowman and the tree inside. I’m so sad that the scarf on the snowman smeared a little with the top coat.. But they’re still pretty.
This nude pink OPI is the perfect french nude for my skin tone! I LOVE it!
