Christmas Inspired Nails

So I finally got around to doing a Christmas inspired nails just in time before the big day, lol. I haven't even done shopping yet and I feel like calling quit. After I came home from work, cooked, and eat, I wanted to head to bed. I had to run some errands and take my daughter to the store to pick up a couple thing for her field trip tomorrow. I had to drink some coffee for an energy boost. Well guess what, now I'm wide awake and typing this blog and it's 1:30 am.

On my left hand, I used China Glaze Phat Santa (red), 2 coats. Over Phat Santa, I applied one coat of Barielle Elle's Spell. This add more depth and flecks of gold to the red nail polish.

On the middle finger, I used China Glaze Jolly Holly. I used Stripe Rite in a light gold metallic color to make the ribbons. In the center I used Art Deco Red, which is a glittery neutral red. I added a pink flower shaped rhinestone over the center of the bow to make it pop.

On the thumb, I decided to go for a candy cane design. China Glaze Phat Santa is the base color. For the stripes, I used Art Deco white, Stripe Rite, and China Glaze Jolly Holly.

On my right hand, I use the same reds as my left hand. On the ring finger, I used Orly Glitz and Glamour, which is a bright, glittery, orangy gold. I painted a holly plant using a nail brush, Jolly Holly, and Art deco Red.
On my thumb, I used Essence nail art silver surfer to paint a large snow flake. I have to admit painting the design on my right hand was kinda tricky and I had to repaint the thumb cause I messed it up.

I used Seche Vite top Coat on all my nails to seal the colors.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with how my nail painting turned out. Do you like to dress up your nails for the holidays?

  1. Oh I adore your Christmas nails. I need to post up a picture of mines before I take them off my nails and do a new look. I love doing nails for the holiday. You're so good with both of your hands. I'm left handed so I'll never post up pictures of my left hand. (That hand looks sloppy hahaha)
