White Christmas Nail Art Design featuring Girly Bits

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
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.

  2. I love this one! It's simple, feminine, elegant and it makes great use of only 3 nail polishes. Yeah, I went back and counted and was like... oh! That IS only 3 colors! And thank you for the vicarious use of that moyou festive plate, I shall drool over the gold ornaments till next year. Makes me wish my nails were long enough to put two of those on at a time.


    Awesome!

  6. Hi Karolyn, I have "Dressed To Gild" and used it in a Christmas mani last week. I chose to highlight the lime green bits of glitter in it, though, and called my mani "I'm Dreaming Of A ... Lime Christmas". I like your stamped ornaments -- white and gold always seem so classy, and special but not too "in your face". Happy New Year!

  7. Happy New Year to you too Cat! What a nice coincidence! I probably would have used lime green as well, except I didn't have that color in
    Swarovski AND I really love purple. I love the name you chose for your design! <3

  8. Purple and lime green are both great! They are opposites on the color wheel, so we can always use them together in the same mani. =)

  12. Ahhh! You used one of my longest lemming indie polish - Eggnogoholic - and you showed it off sooooo well in this very lovely and demure White Christmas design. While I saw it on IG at Christmastime. it's fun to come back and read the whole post and "hear" your detailed thoughts. Such a wonderful design you made here!! :)

  13. I wish I had known! I could have tipped off Santa to put it in your package! It is a very worthy lemming. It's so impressive and elegant on it's own I almost didn't want to stamp over it. I'm so glad you liked it as much as I did!! <3
