Hello lovely readers! Today I have my third last Christmas mani to show you. I’ll be publishing my December Nail Anarchy mani on Christmas Eve and my Christmas day nails sometime next week. Somehow this year I felt like I had more ideas than time, but there is always next year to do more Christmas stuff. Wow. Christmas is in this week and I’m already talking about next year’s Christmas manis. Let me pull myself towards myself and show you what I’ve done 🙂
I started off with my usual Tip Top base coat. I painted all my nails with 2 coats of Tip Top Armour Plate. Armour Plate is my favourite silver foil and stamps like a dream too. This really is my go to silver and I’m hunting for a back up of it now that Tip Top is closing down. On my thumb, index and pinkie nails I painted two coats of L.A. Girl Speckle. Speckle is from the Splatter collection and has sparkly red and matte white hexes with smaller white hexes suspended in a clear base. You definitely need to blob and spread this one. I used a striping brush and essence roller coaster to paint holly leaves on my middle and ring nails. To accent the leaves I used the same brush and Tip Top We Have an Agreenmint. I finished off by adding 3 red rhinestones between the holly leaves to represent the berries. I sealed it all in with 2 generous coats of Seche Vite. The result:
I’m quite pleased with how these turned out considering it was my first attempt at holly leaves. What do you think of these? Be sure to let me know in the comments below!
Thanks for reading 🙂
