Green: Christmas Tree

I'm finally posting my Christmas manicure, sorry it took so long :( I wanted to draw a tree on my ring finger but it didn't turn out very nice, so I made a tree using dots instead. I used acrylic paint for the dots.

Colors used
Orly- Enchanted Forest (2 coats)
China Glaze- Hi-Tek

Red: Snowman

Today I have another Christmas manicure. I wanted to use one of the characters from IHaveACupcake's Santa and Friends tutorial, so I picked the snowman because Liz loves them. :) On my right hand I added two snowflake stickers, since I can't draw with my left hand.

Colors used:
Sally Hansen- Rapid Red & Whirlwind White
I used acrylic paint for the snowman

Thanks for reading!

Blue: Snowflakes

Hi everyone! Today I have another Christmas manicure. I'm practicing on my snowflake art so these aren't that awesome. I made a mistake on my pinky so I drew some trees instead. I used acrylic paint for the designs. I wanted to use a pretty glittery blue as the base, so I used two different polishes.

Colors used:
China Glaze: Frostbite (3 coats)
OPI: Last Friday Night (1 coat)

Nail Art by My Husband

Hello everyone! My internet connection was down so I couldn't publish this post sooner. On Saturday I was painting my nails and right when I was about to draw on some dots, two of my nails smudged. I got angry and my husband volunteered to give me a manicure. He picked out a white nail polish, red and green acrylic paint and my nail art tools. He blindfolded me so I couldn't see what designs he was drawing. The base is three coats of OPI- Alpine Snow

^ Candy Cane, Wreath, Mistletoe, Candy Cane :)

^ Before I cleaned up O_O lol
^ This is the color I was wearing before I smudged my nail polish
^ China Glaze- Ten Man (4 coats)
I drew some dots on Liz's nail because she kept saying "Mommy nail polish, Mommy nail polish" and she put her little hands on my desk so I could paint them. I used pink and purple acrylic paint with a dotting tool. Afterwards she wanted me to take a picture of her nails. When I was younger I always wanted a sister so I could paint her nails and play with her hair. Instead I got an annoying, ugly brother (lol) whose birthday was today so we got to eat oreo cake. :D

Thanks for reading :)

OP- YDKJ Suede w/ Top Coat

Today I have one my of backlogged posts. I took these pictures last month (Nov.5th except for the last two pictures) I'm currently wearing the same color because I didn't want to leave my Christmas art fail on my nails from yesterday. I love this polish, it dries super fast and I like to wear it with a topcoat because it makes it shiny :) I used 2 coats and then added Seche Vite.

Christmas Nail Art

It's finally December! I love this time of year, all the holidays and cold weather! Today I used some acrylic paints from Michael's to draw some Christmas designs on my nails, this was my first time using them along with my nail art brushes. I bought my nail art brushes from ebay seller: susuway. I mixed white and brown to make light brown but I didn't mix them well enough, so my gingerbread man looks swirled lol. Also I have new lighting for my pictures, my husband bought me a cool lamp for my nail pictures :)

^ Under lamp
^ Under lamp
^ Fugly snowflake, a snowman that looks dead, and a frightened gingerbread man.
Nail art FAIL o_O
I used Sinful Colors- Paradise (2 coats)

Zoya: Shawn

Hey everyone! These pictures are from last month, but right now I'm wearing the same color so I don't feel like I'm super behind on my posts :P
When I first bought OPI Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window and I remembered I had Zoya Shawn at home, I was so mad because I thought I had bought a dupe, but they're aren't the same lol
I used two coats & even without a topcoat this color is super shiny when it dries. :D
