Countdown to Christmas: 1 Day aka Holly Nails

Hey everyone!

Just sneaking in with this post.. it has been a crazy last couple of days, and I was worried if I started the series before actually 'finishing' all looks, I would get caught at the end.. I sort of have, but, I did just complete this one.. so that gives me a few hours of today, and some of tomorrow to do my Christmas nails. A friend today gave me the idea of what to do for the nails I sport on Christmas. I like it. I will go with it. You shall see tomorrow.

Enough babbling, on to the nails.

Using this PHOTO as inspiration, and my smART nails nail art stencils, I came up with this..




I used:
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • butter London British Racing Green
  • OPI Coca-Cola Red
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament
  • Dotting tool
  • Little brush
  • smART nails P105

I actually quite like these stencils. Though, I did cheat - slightly. I was not waiting for the holly sprigs to dry, so I just used a dotting tool to create the berries. But. All in all, a very simple way to achieve a very intricate look. Minus my lines. Let's not pay attention to those wonky gems.

Merry Christmas eve, everyone. See you again tomorrow to share with you the nails I will personally be sporting for Christmas day. Have an amazing sleep and I hope Santa brings you rad gifts.. or, my favourite thing, time with your loved ones!
