Merry Christmas, everyone!
I guess I took more of a break than I bargained for, so I apologize for disappearing once again. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of rehearsals and performances, so I simply did not have any time for myself. I decided to finally break my dry spell the other night by doing some Christmas themed nail art!
I definitely took advantage of some of the Cyber Monday deals online, so I added some really nice colors to my collection from Live Love Polish. One of my recent acquisitions was this awesome polish from Superchic Lacquer called No Rest for the Wicked. It’s a stunning deep emerald green holo, and the quality of the formula is just amazing. The color was super opaque in just one coat even though I ended up applying two coats to my nails to even out the texture, and it was a great polish to use to get back into the swing of doing some nail art again.
I immediately knew that I wanted to pair this color with some gold stamping, so after shuffling through my plates, I settled on using Celebration BPX-L013 from Born Pretty Store.
For this design, I used the ornament pattern from the bottom row of the plate, 2nd image from the left on most of my nails. Because I didn’t want my nails to look too similar to one another, I ended up adding the festive Christmas design from the bottom row, 3rd image from the left as an accent nail on my ring finger. Gold stamping polish from Ya Qin An and a clear stamper from Born Pretty Store were used to transfer the patterns, and a generous amount of Seche Vite top coat was applied over the design to add that gorgeous shine on top.
This manicure is really as simple as it gets, so it was easy for me to get it done on a tight schedule. Things should be slowing down a little more over the next few days, so I hope to get some more nail art done soon!
In the meantime, I hope you all got what you wanted for Christmas and enjoy the rest of the holiday season. Happy polishing!
