Hey ya'll! So I am super excited to be guest posting of Mely today on here! I have been following her on Instagram since I started my Instagram! Her nails are always so lovely, and I had so much fun doing her Christmas challenge last year, it really helped me branch out and try new things which is great! Today for you I have Decoration nails for the challenge! :) Christmas nails are probably my favorite type of nails to do, yet they are so hard at the same time. I don't know about you but when it comes to finding Christmas Inspiration there is just so much and then I just get stuck like oh my where do I start! That is what happened with these, I sat down with 2 ideas and yet I didn't do either and I came up with something completely different. So let's check them out! :)
I wanted to create a fun Christmas ornament mani but not necessarily your traditional kind. So I went with them up close and a mix of glitters and details along with tree branches. At first I didn't care for them, but after editing all of the pictures and wearing them for a few hours I began to really like that. I feel like that happens a lot but I truly do think it's because we are all our own worst critics.
Here you can see the glitters and a bit of the details on a few of the ornaments.
Now for this look I used a lot of polishes or at least it looks like it by looking at my desk! So here we go with the polishes! The base color is 2 coats of Zoya Tiana. Now for the colors of the ornaments! The green is China Glaze Glittering Garland, the gold is China Glaze Champagne Kisses, the sparkly red is China Glaze Ringing in the Red, the Marsala is China Glaze Velvet Bow, and lastly the red green gold glitter is China Glaze Twinkle Lights. Wow, that was a lot!
All of the tree limbs/outlining and tiny ornament details were done with acrylic paint and my Berry Wine Brushes from Winstonia. They are new to me and I am currently loving them
That's it for my decoration nails! I really hope you all liked these and enjoyed them as much as I ended up enjoying them. Also I want to say a big thank you to Mely for having me today! So glad I could be apart of this fun challenge, and I can't wait to see what you come up with for this Holiday season, they are always fabulous!!
