Merry Xmas….

Hello out there, well despite me moaning that Xmas was a drag, I’ve had a lovely day! Even work was fun! It’s boxing day here but it must still be the 25th somewhere in the world. I did this design a couple of years ago and I’ve always wanted to re-create it and make it better. I’m not even going to link to the original….shudder…rolls eyes…. no clean up, each nail a different length and shape! What was I thinking?!

Neon xmas

Over a white base I sponged a neon gradient using Color Club “Warhol” (pink), Ulta 3 “Tahiti” (orange) and Factorie Polished “Yellow Glow”. Then I painted in the┬átrees, kangaroos and Santa with ink from a nail art pen and a brush.Maybe Santa is heading home after dropping off all the pressies around the world or maybe he’s going on holiday to Australia to beat the Artic cold! Leaving his pine trees behind him. I don’t really have a story for this one. Hope you have all had a great day. ­čÖé

Tinsel fingers…

Hello out there! If you have visited me before you might know that I like to stick “things” onto my nails. So this year for a different Xmas mani I thought I’d try tinsel. What a mess!! I got the stuff everywhere cutting it up into little pieces and trying to stick it on ….ooh glitter!

Tinsel fingers 2

Here I’ve used small tinsel and stuck in down into a clear gel polish, which I then cured for a minute or so. Just until the tinsel held. I did manage to “glue” two of my fingers together at one point, that was a scary moment!

I’d better take the tinsel off now, before it ends up in someone’s food! Hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow with one more Xmas mani.
