I hope you all had a great Christmas (or whatever you celebrate)!! Mine was pretty good. I'll have a separate blog post up about that soon. :) Christmas is my favorite holiday and I love decorating and being festive. One of the ways I like to express my holiday spirit is through my nails. I wanted to show you all what I did with my nails this week.
I wasn't sure what to title this post because even though I do paint my nails every week (at least once a week), I don't always post photos of them. I should probably start doing this more. Ahhh, the life of a procrastinator. Lol. :)
Anyway, I got really bored yesterday and decided to do something different with my nails. After re-doing each thumb nail about 4x, I finally got them as close as they were going to get to looking presentable.
|My sparkle snowflake nails...|
|A closer look...|
|Rimmel London 60 Second Top Coat --210 Mintilicious|
|Sally Hansen Insta-Dri -- Clearly Quick|
|Sally Hansen French Manicure -- 1 Natural White|
|Essie Multi Dimension Top Coat -- Set In Stones|
1.) First, I used 2 coats of "Mintilicious" as a base for all of my nails.
2.) Next, I added "Set In Stones" to my two ring finger nails.
3.) After that, I concentrated on my thumb nails. I used "Natural White" to draw a few small snowflakes on both nails. The brush that comes with this polish is really slim so it made it easier to make the snowflakes. It still took a few tries though before they looked good enough for me. Lol. When I was done putting the snowflakes on my nails, I used the same polish and same brush to draw small dots around the snowflakes.
4.) Lastly, as always, I used "Clearly Quick" as a top coat over all of my nails. I never paint my nails without using this because it makes them dry to the touch within 90 seconds and completely dry within a few minutes. It also helps seal the color and makes polish last longer. This is one of my favorite top coats.
Have you used any of these polishes? Did you do anything special to your nails for the holidays? Let me know in the comments below. :)
