I love everything about Christmas -- the food, the family get togethers, the decorations, the snow, the cold, the smells, and of course the PRESENTS! Although, I love giving presents more than I love getting them, buuuut I don't mind opening one or two ;D What is your favourite part about Christmas?
For the second week of the Challenge, the theme is Presents. This could be any way you wanted to interpret it -- whether it be doing a mani showing what gift you wanted to receive most this year, to give a hint to your family and friends ;) or the ways to receive presents. I chose the way to receive presents -- all wrapped beautifully and of course the main giver of gifts... (in Buddy the Elf voice) SANTA!!!!!! :D
Here are some close-ups:
Thumb -- Santa Suit Nail
Butter London Pillar Box Red base colour with two vertical rows of dots in Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On, a stripe of Jordana Pop Art Black Mark and Butter London West End Wonderland for the belt!
Index -- Wrapping Paper Nail
Butter London West End Wonderland base colour with Butter London Pillar Box Red, Zoya Irene and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On lines drawn using a toothpick to create a plaid look to represent wrapping paper :)
Middle -- Wrapped Gift Nail
Zoya Blaze base colour with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On stamped with Konad plate M67 and striped on for a wrapped gift, just for you! ;)
Ring -- Christmas Tree Nail (yes, it's upside down, sorry lol!)
Water marble with Julep Courteney, Avon Electric Green and Zoya Irene. Topped with Dollish Polish Dino-Mite Yoshi (perfect for "Christmas tree decorations") and cat eye shaped rhinestones for a star.
This is definitely one of my favourites of this mani! I will be doing this as a full mani for the Christmas season!!
Julep Delaunay base colour topped with China Glaze Twinkle Lights. This is to resemble the meaning of Christmas... GLITTER! Haha, just kidding.. kinda! everything during the Christmas season is packed with glitter :)
I hope you love this mani as much as I do! I don't want to take it off, and I'm actually not looking forward to it with all the glitter that is incorporated into it.. *sigh*
