Hey all! Today my BFF (or as well call each other, PFL [pal for life]) Kim is sharing a Christmas mani with you! Here’s Kim:
HALLLLOOOOOO here is my pre christmas mani…
This was awhile ago, Dori did her oh so cute snow man (which she does every year) and I as a newbie/busy mom decided to use my free time being creative and painting penguins on my nails (cuz they looked a lot easier than snowmen teehee)
This is where I got the idea. I actually saw this last year so this year I HAD to do it. I used a bunch of LA Colors Art Deco nail art polishes and the heart I filled in with my Jelly Apple Essie red and the red glitter on top is the art deco.
They look hard but were actually very easy. Painting with my left hand however my penguins came out kinda funny. I called them my emo punk rock penguin band lol. These are super cute and easy to do so everyone should try them!!! I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas and stay warm!
Hello readers! Any of you own any of these cute lil snowmen polishes from Rite Aid?.. the ones by Blue Cross? Well none of the colors really appealed to me but the bottles are too gosh darn cute to pass up so I had to get at least one and this frosty red snowman with tiny holo glitter was the lucky winner that got to come home with me!
And to make him even more festive I added China Glaze Party Heart on top! Woop woop!
A Christmas party on my nails? Yes please!!
Can you believe there’s only a week left until Christmas?! By this time next next week I will be sitting under my tree with my family opening gifts. Or possibly we’ll still be eating our prefect Christmas breakfast (now that we’re all adults my mom insists that Christmas morning breakfast come before presents, not after) consisting of the most amazing glazed upside down sticky buns (I’ll make sure to share pictures!!) and Lil’ Smokies. Yum, yum, yum!! But with only one week left until Christmas, I’m scrambling to crank out as many Christmas manis as possible. Christmas only comes once a year, and since I’m a huge fan of the season, I want to go all out in every way possible.. including nails! Here’s my Christmas nails for today, I was going to wait to show them tomorrow but I’m too excited about them to resist! I got off work late last night and stayed up til 1:00 doing these. I think my lack of sleep was worth it :0)
Left hand: Santa’s Hat, Gingerbread Man, Christmas Tree, Candy Cane
Right Hand: Ice Skate, Christmas Present, Rudolph, Snowman
And for my thumbs I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do, so I just put China Glaze Party Hearty on top!
I actually really like how Party Hearty looks over Color Club Magic Attraction (the base color I used here), I think I’m gonna have to do a full mani like this.. it’s so sparkly and festive and I love how every color glitter in Party Hearty shows up over Magic Attraction. What other colors do you all like Party Hearty over? Anyone else do any fun Christmas nail art?
Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
Good morning! I’ve been trying to be creative when it comes to Christmas nails.. I’m not very experienced when it comes to nail art but with all the fun ideas for Christmas nail art, I figure what better time to practice :0). This was Color Club Enchanted Holiday topped with two coats of Sinful All About You. The Gingerbread men were OPI Ginger Bells!, They white was Wet N Wild French White Creme, the bow ties were Zoya Veruschka, and the gum drop buttons were OPI Dear Santa.
The sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day :0)
Good morning! Can you believe there’s only 13 days left until Christmas?! That means only 13 more days left of Christmas manis too!! What a sad fact.. which means I have to squeeze as many Christmas manis into these next 13 days as I can. Whose with me!? First up is Christmas snowmen. I did a snowmen mani last year too and now I’m having trouble remembering where I saw the original picture that I got inspiration from so this year I just used last years picture to try to duplicate.
And just for kicks, here’s last year’s version
Besides the fact that my application was a bit off and my nails were horridly long and uneven, I think I did a pretty good job last year considering this was my first attempt at detailed nail art. I think I’ll make this snowman mani a part of my Christmas tradition and recreate them every year :0) I love snowmen and the snow and since I live in So Cal I only get to see snow when I go to the mountains to go snowboarding so having snowmen on my nails lets me enjoy the snow and pretend like I’m having a white Christmas :0)
Happy Sun Day!
