Today I have what should be my last Christmas nail art design. But we will see as the day is still young and I didn't get through all of my new holiday polishes! Since we rarely have snow here in New Mexico, never mind specifically for the holiday, I started a tradition of creating a White Christmas Nail Art design.
This year's design features a subtly elegant polish from Girly Bits accented by another amazing textured polish from KBShimmer.
Girly Bits Eggnogoholic is a soft winter white crelly with the perfect amount of mixed size small gold glitters. The formula was just right and I am pretty sure it was opaque in 2 coats, but went for 3 to get a touch more glitter on my nails.
I applied Eggnogoholic to all of my nails over a base of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter A-Peel and finished with HK Girl Fast Drying Topcoat.
Next I stamped 3 nails using different ornament designs from MoYou London's Festive 18 plate and Mundo de Unas Gold.
I am so happy that I bought MoYou London's new rectangle stamper recently since I needed a stamper its size for this design. It is the largest rectangle stamper I've yet to own, measuring approximately 3cm x 2.2cm, and it is super squishy, but not marshmallow sticky. For comparison, the rectangle stamper I bought recently from Messy Mansion measures approximately 2.7cm x 1.6cm.
I used Straights from NailVinyls to create a "tree" on my thumb and ring finger and filled it in with a coat of KBShimmer Dressed to Gild (more info on this polish in my upcoming, final post on the KBShimmer Winter 2014 Collection).
I added another coat of Dressed To Gild after the first had dried. Then I finished off the design by topping my tree with a 3mm Swarovski Crystal in a lavender shade to accentuate that color in the glitter.
