Blogmas 2015 Day 11 - Christmas Inspired Nails Pt 1

11 December 2015
NAIL ART, NAIL ART, NAIL ART. Love me some nail art but fucked if I actually have time to do it more than once a year! This year I decided to put together a few ideas, mostly I wanted to have a play so that I could decide on my Christmas day manicure, so I sat down, stuck some shit on my nails and took some photos.

Whenever I'm doing nail art I take the time to prep my nails properly, I give them a file and buff if they need it and I choose my base coat according to the current condition of my nails, since mine are jacked up at the moment I opted to use Seche Rebuild. Will report back on what I think of it.

After picking out the goodies in my collection that I wanted to experiment with I got down to business.

There are a couple things I need to point out here, the glitter polish does not paint on the way it is shown, I had to purposely place each individual piece to have it sit the way I wanted, the little metal nail art pieces were picked up on eBay and only cost me a few dollars for a bag of 10 (almost all of my nail art supplies in this post are from ebay unless otherwise stated). These will hold just fine on wet nail polish but the hat required nail glue since it only had a small base to sit on.

I used Seche Vite as my top coat for this one and once it had dried completely it shrunk tightly around the little snowflakes and allowed them to have a nice 3D effect.

Super basic tree, takes less than a minute to do from start to finish and looks sparkly, neat and very pretty when done over a full set of nails.

This one is so cute, little snowlady and falling snow. Precious!

There will be a second part to this post going up in a few days.

Do you have any go-to Christmas nail art that you use for the festive season?
