Christmas is Red and Green to Me

The next prompt (Notice I didn't say today's.  I am a bit late. . . I had the nails done, I just haven't had time to blog) for the Challenge Your Nail Art 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge is Red and Green.  This design I just went with simple and elegant.


China Glaze Holly-Day, Merry Berry, and Medallion are nice dark colors and then with the gold glitter it is very festive.


The pictures don't do Medallion justice!  It is so sparkly!  I couldn't stop looking at when it was on my nails.



See you tomorrow.  Don't forget to check out the other participants!

Nine Ladies Dancing

Today's prompt for the Challenge Your Nail Art 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge is all about the song 12 Days of Christmas.


That never fails to bring a smile to my face!  So with this prompt I knew the perfect stamping plate to use!  I have been looking for an excuse to use my BBF Stamping Plate BBF 16.


This could almost be a sugar plum fairies manicure.  I am not completely happy with the stamping quality, but I am not sure if it is me or the plate.


The colors are all China Glaze, well other than Konad Special White.  I used Life Is Rosy, Pink-ie Promise, and United.



I really do love these colors together.  I am not a big pink gal, but this is rather delicate and pretty.

Away In A Manger

Challenge You Nail Art's prompt for their 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge is ice blue and white.  Well when I was trying to come up with something for today I was thinking the prompt was blue and silver.  So, when I did some inspiration hunting and found this design by Mely of Rock Your Nails I thought was great for the prompt, now I realize it is not, but there is no time to go back. . .


I am really proud of this.  I am not happy with the painted on silver stars.  If I ever did it again, I would skip that part.  But still, this is rather cool if I do say so myself.


I used Ulta Moody Blues, Julep Dana, Bess, Liz, China Glaze Liquid Leather, Millennium, and Fairy Dust.


I almost had to give you pictures from a cloudy day.  Luckily the clouds left later in this afternoon and I was able to take pictures in sunlight that could capture the brilliance of FD.  So shiny and pretty!


Well, I hope you all liked this design!  Don't forget to check out the others.


Tootles!
