Peppermint Swirls

11 Dec

Good afternoon!  It is Monday and we are just two weeks away from Christmas…..aaaahhhhhh!!!!  I am so excited and can’t wait!!!!  Christmas time has me reminiscing of my childhood, past Christmas Day’s, and family tradition.  It has me missing the one’s who aren’t here, those far away, and grateful for those I still have.  In the mayhem of holiday shopping, scheduling, clean, and working, we sometime forget to take a moment and enjoy those around us.  Show those loved ones how grateful we are to have them in our lives, to put past differences aside, and cherish the moments we have left.  One thing I always love about the holiday’s is all the peppermint infused drinks, sweets, and decorations.  I remember as a child hanging candy canes on the Christmas tree, creating works of art in grade school with peppermint, and the sweet smell warming me on the inside.  To show my love for this holiday treat, I had to create some peppermint nail art.

For my peppermint nails I started off with two coats of Purity by Zoya.  Next I used Sooki by Zoya and the Geometry plate by Moyra to create a peppermint swirl look.  Everything is then sealed with two coats of Marvel Liquid Macro Top Coat by SuperChic Lacquer.

What do you guys think of my peppermint swirl nails?  I love them, almost as much as I love the candy itself!  What is one Christmas or Holiday tradition that you just love?  What is the one holiday food that you look forward to each year?  Thank you so much for stopping by today and I look forward to seeing you all again soon! <3

    TWO WEEKS? I’m not ready for this! I don’t even have my Christmas tree decorated yet! Arg!

    However, these nails are SO on point for Christmas. I love how it looks!

    I love this design. It’s so Christmasy without being schmaltzy. What a beautiful crispness to it.

    That makes me want peppermint candy. Ok, what I really wanted to say is I wanted to lick your nails because they look so real. Then I thought how creepy that sounds. lol

    Great way to use this plate. These are perfect!!

      I like finding images in various plates that don’t have to be holiday specific. Some people are limited on budgets so it’s nice to find a palette with multiple uses. <3
