Hi everyone! I have my final Christmas mani to show you today 🙂 I love doing striped Christmas designs. Last year I chose to do them in red and gold, but this year I opted for the more traditional red and white. I started off with an L.A. Girl base coat to protect my nails. I thought I was very clever with this mani and started off with Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby as my base colour. I knew that I would flood my cuticles terribly when using vinyls and that Ruby Ruby would stain them. I also knew that the white I would be using is really opaque and I wouldn’t have any issues covering up the red. Sometimes I don’t fail at this nail thing! I laid down only 1 coat of Ruby Ruby and waited for that to dry. On my ring nail I dabbed a coat of L.A. Girl Speckle which contains red hex glitter, matte white glitter in 2 different sizes. On the rest of my nails I used straight nail vinyls that I received for review from We Heart Nail Art and painted one thick coat of essence wild white ways over them. I removed the vinyls immediately and sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite.
I’m quite happy with how these turned out, although I think the stripes should have been a bit different, perhaps spaced differently. These nails were pretty eye catching, probably because of the white and I received lots of compliments on them.
If you celebrate Christmas, a very merry Christmas to you and yours! I hope that all of my readers have a most blessed and safe festive season!
Thanks for reading.
