Last month Nail Anarchy brought you outer space nails, this month it was my turn to select a theme. I was actually quite stoked since I just LOVE Christmas, so getting to pick December was special to me 🙂 After scratching my head for a couple of weeks I finally settled on “Christmas Tree!” as a theme. We’ve decided to keep our manis secret from each other this month, which just adds to the anticipation and excitement. I can’t wait to see what everyone else has come up with. We will have inlinkz at the bottom again to help you see all the rest and navigate between them easily 🙂 Let me show you what I came up with!
I started off with my usual Tip Top base coat. On my pinkie and index nails I painted 2 coats of Charlie Daring. I bought this polish on sale before last Christmas because I was hunting for a deep green to use to do Christmas tree manis and I used it to create this one. Daring has a gorgeous blue-green shimmer that is just beautiful. On my thumb, middle and ring nails I painted 2 coats of China Glaze Just Be-Claws. Ooooh, how I love this red! It is from the Happy Holiglaze collection and I really love it! Once all of my nails were dry I used tape that I purchased from Born Pretty Store (purchase here*) to cover the sides of my nails, leaving a triangle of nail exposed. I went in with essence Hidden Garden to fill in the triangles and removed the tape immediately. I placed a dot of regular top coat at the top of each triangle and placed a holographic star onto it, one nail at a time. I sealed everything in with 2 coats of Seche Vite. The result:
I drew inspiration for this mani from a photo I saw on Google. You can find the post here, but it isn’t in english. I think these turned out quite cute. I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
What do you think of this mani? Please let me know in the comments below 🙂
