Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I finally have some holiday nail art to share with you! I have been busy lately, and then I got sick, so I have sort of slacked on the holiday manicures... but I hope this will make up for it!
I present to you... holiday wreath half moons!
This look is SUPER festive and really cool (if you ask me, anyway). It starts off with a base of Color Club Worth the Risque, which is a silver polish with a faint holo effect.
Then, I freehanded on the base of the wreath half moons with Zoya Veruschka. Any similarly dark and foresty green would get the job done if you don't have Veruschka. I just used my favorite, regular ol' nail brush to do this. I then added on small bits of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Going Green and Wet N Wild Black Creme to give the wreath some depth and dimension. You want to be careful when you are adding on the black though, as it can quickly become really thick and dark. It might help you to add it on in tiny bits and then sort of spread it out with a dry nail art brush.
Using the small end of a dotting tool, I added on the holly berries in China Glaze Red Pearl. I did the dots twice to ensure that they were highly pigmented.
Then, using the smallest and thinnest nail art brush that I have, I freehanded on the bows in ... wait for it ... CHINA GLAZE VELVET BOW! How apropos! I learned a few nails into the process that the tops of the bows look best when you make them out of rounded triangular shapes.
I am loving this look, and it isn't too complicated once you get down to it! I think wreaths make the perfect twist on the classic half moon style.
What do you think? Would you wear this look? What other holiday-type manicures would you guys like to see me attempt? :)
