I hope you had a wonderful Christmas/Holiday and wish you a prosperous New Year :)
In spite of the lack of nail-related content on this blog, I have been wearing nail polish--and enjoying it all month. Rather than doing 12 separate posts featuring my Christmas manis, I've decided to do two. Part 1 is for the first 6 days, and part 2 is the last 6.
Day #1: Yay! It's Christmas!!!!
I wanted to do something fun and festive for the first day, so I painted 2 coats of China Glaze Sugar Plums (a plummy shimmer with holographic glitter) and painted the tips with 1 coat of China Glaze Twinkle Lights ( a clear base with gold,green,red, and some silver holo glitter) I liked this look a lot.
Day #2: I Hate Christmas!
I think I was really pissed off on day 2 and all I wanted to wear was brown. I have no recollection as to why, but surprisingly, it worked. The brown I chose was 3 coats of OPI Get In the Espresso-Lane! from their Touring America collection (a greenish-brown creme) Oddly enough, I liked this mani a lot.
Day #3: To Heck With Winter! I'm Wearing Blue!I got kind of bored with seeing so much red and green, so I opted for Revlon Colorstay nail enamel in Blue Slate (a slate blue creme) This was another hit. Everyone else was wearing variations of the traditional holiday mani, and I was rocking blue :) I dare to be different.
...that is until Day #4: I Want My Nails To Look Like Christmas Trees!
Day 4 is my favourite <3 I achieved this beautifully obnoxious manicure by wearing 3 coats of OPI Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow and 1 coat of China Glaze Party Hearty.
Day#5: Why, Yes I Am Trying To Draw Attention To My Hands.
OPI Designer-De-Better, a champagne-gold foil with pink and copper flecks. Blindingly shiny and beautiful. I loved this mani.
Day #6: Nope, I'm Over It...Again.
I just did not want to bother on this day. I had loads of stamping designs and stickers in mind, but between my long holiday hours, early wake up time, and lack of sleep, I had zero interest in making an effort.
Hence, the always classy, ever safe, burgundy creme/jelly; OPI All A-Bordeaux The Sled. To be fair, this is from a Holiday collection, (and one of my favourites) but it is also kind of basic. No worries though, it's still gorgeous and I wore it the longest.
Hopefully, I'll have Part 2 for you tomorrow :)
Have a great evening!
Ginger-who had an awesome Christmas with my amazing family <3
