Christmas time is here,
Happiness and cheer,
Fun for all that children call,
Their favorite time of year.
Christmas means a lot to me. Family, religion, traditions; these are a few of the words I associate with this joyful day. My list of Christmas memories and feelings could fill up this blog, but it is about nail art so I will spare you from that. One thing though, my first nail art was Christmas themed. In fact it was Santa hats. I thought about redoing it and seeing how I have improved, but I saw this design by schmucknaegel and I just had to give it a try. I figured lets expand my repertoire and keep it close to the original. Plus, this was I can also use the design for both challenges!
I am thinking I should give up on Santa hats. I do like this, but I am just not as happy with it as I would like to be. Ah, well the circle of life isn't always pretty.
I used Finger Paints Paper Mâchè, China Glaze Fast Track, and Hey Sailor. I love Fast Track! It is this golden-shimmery nude. So pretty. You do get visible nail line even after two coats, but vnl never bothered me.
My thumb close-up came out blurry, which is sad since my thumb looks the best, so you will have to make due with this shot.
I know it wasn't a complete fail, but I still wish it was a bit better.
