I’m not really sure how I feel about this one. When I thought up the idea, I felt it’d be a fun different candy cane design, and I don’t know, in practice I’m not sure I’m digging it. I think it’s the thumb that’s bugging me the most, but I haven’t quite narrowed it down yet. Either way, I figured I’d document this.
Base- China Glaze: Love Letters
Design- White- Wet n Wild Wild Shine- French White Creme, Green-China Glaze Holly-Day (From 2012 Holiday Collection I believe), and Red- China Glaze- Pointsettia (2012 Holiday Collection as well).
First holiday nails of December!! I love how this frozen-tipped mani turned out. I really feel like it’s snow-covered. I had a bit of difficulty getting the ombre effect right on this one, mostly because the shift from blue to white needed to be quick. I achieved this by using a solid white base, then at the cuticle placing the blue and blotching it towards the white. About halfway down I used a sheer paler blue, then dabbed in more white. Topped with a multi-sized circle glitter and BAM! I really love this. Not only is it “winter holiday” appropriate, but it’s also Frozen themed appropriate…and it matches the white and blue holiday decore on my desk at work! HA!
My nails are so long right now, I’m not use to them. I’m very torn between cutting them down, and leaving them long. They’re such great canvases right now!! I feel almost bad cutting them with all the adorable holiday inspiration about! It’s getting harder to type though…so they may be getting a trim.
For some reason, this was not the easiest nail art to photograph, and no matter what I tried, it just didn’t take well. That makes me sad, in person this is so so pretty!

I know, right? What’s up with this?
It’s been hard for me to get inspired lately when it comes to blogging and nail art. I’m trying to get back into it with product reviews and what not as I find them. What inspired this was actually me coming across a new product…I’m not sure how new it is, as things aren’t usually cutting edge in my little town here. So, it’s new to me, and that’s all that matters, more on it later though.
I wanted to try a little something different. I’m not sure why exactly I thought about turkey feathers, but I did. Thanksgiving and all coming up, I’m sure it had something to do with it.
I <3 Nail Art Pen- Sally Hansen in Noir, OOC Cosmetics in Fondue, China Glaze Roughish Red and Sunshine Pop, X-Treme Wear-Sally Hansen in Sun Kissed, and L’Oreal in The Temptress Power (base color). Not sure how I really feel about how they turned out, but people seemed to like them at work. So I’ll roll with it.
