Christmas Lights

24 Dec

Good afternoon everyone!  I hope you are all having a very merry Christmas Eve!!!  Today I have my “official” Christmas nails to share with you guys.  I had done some cute peppermint nails but then decided to change them up for something a little more…..sparkly!  I used my faithful OPI Alpine Snow for my super white backdrop.  Two coats gave me a full solid finish that was simply perfect for any nail art.  I then used Zoya Willia and one of my nail art brushes from Born Pretty to create the start to my Christmas lights.  Now is where I wanted to change things up a little.  I had seen a few Christmas light designs and a lot of them used polish for their lights but I wanted something with a little more dimension, nail gems was the perfect answer.  I hand placed various colors along the black line to create a fun look.

So what do you guys think of my Christmas nails?  I LOVE THEM!!!  Though I do with I had a little more patience on waiting for things to dry before top coating, lol.  I will be taking tomorrow off so I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all again. <3

    Very cute! I saw some on Pinterest once that used I think teardrop shaped gems that was quite brilliant. These are adorable! Gems really add a great touch to the Christmas lights! 🙂
