Hello! Today I have my Christmas manicure to show you. I would have liked to have posted this on Christmas Even when I did it, or on Christmas when I wore it, but I seriously just have not had time to get the pics done! :) I was too busy having an excellent holiday with my family.
So here they are, the nails I wore for Christmas.
I realized a few days before Christmas that I had the red and green hex glitter snowman polish in my collection but that I hadn't used it yet! I wanted to make sure that I used it before Christmas was over, because that type of polish really doesn't work well during the rest of the year. ;)
I started with a base of THREE coats of China Glaze Frosty. I still had some visible nail line but it didn't matter because I was doing the glitter anyway. It was much more sheer than I expected it to be, though.
Then, I painted on a glitter gradient using the brush of the snowman polish, which Rhonni from Nailtique picked up for me (because they don't sell them here)!
I wish that I had had time to do something more complicated and fantastic for my Christmas Day manicure, but given my circumstances I was pleased as punch with the way that these turned out.
My only complaint was that this manicure got quite thick, with all of the layers of Frosty, and it took a long time to dry properly. I was pretty impatient and kept dinging it when I was trying to wrap presents and things.
My family really liked these nails a lot, and I liked them too. I was very glad to get some use out of my snowman polish before it became irrelevant for another year! :)
