Christmas Nails

It has been fun creating Christmas themed nails. Of course they were all easy to create :)
Instead of doing single posts for each one, I've decided to compile them all here.

For the first look, I used 2 coats of Milani gold 3D Holographic polish as my base colour.
I then applied the base colour and Australis Endless Star onto a sponge, 1 stroke of each, just touching. Moving quickly, I dabbed on the nails, moving slightly up and down as I went.
I finished with the snowman glitter top coat, which is clear with green and red shimmer. (no label, sorry, I bought it in a blog sale)








I just had to include another pic of the cutest Christmas nail polish!






A definite theme going on, with the gradient, sparkle and yet another adorable polish bottle! Using the same method as the previous look, I used Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in a pale lilac shade for base colour and  Borghese Rapido in a deeper purple. I also placed some silver, holly design scrap booking transfers on my nails for that Christmas touch :)






I used a pearly white for my base colour. Using a nail art brush, I simply applied vertical lines with gold, red and blue coloured polishes. As you can see, I placed some coloured crystals to finish the festive look.


Not having much time on my hands Christmas Eve, I decided to use cute festive decals. Base colours for this look are a glittery gold from Blush-Amour, and Sally Hansen Dazzling, one of my favourite red polishes.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and have a prosperous New Year
