Good morning lovelies & happy Monday! We’re officially moving onto our next prompt of GlamNailsChallengeDec which is reindeer! How Christmas-y, am I right? & who is the most famous reindeer of all? Rudolf of course! 🦌🔴 so naturally I wanted to create a manicure with a little nod to him.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Strengthening Base Coat
- Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
- China Glaze Don’t Get Elfed Up
- L’Oréal Feeling Kilty
- China Glaze Ruby Slippers
- Nailstuff.ca clear stamper & scraper set (COFFEE10 to save 10% off your purchase!)
- Born Pretty Store Stamping plate BP-L032 (item #23268)
- An old Born Pretty Store plate that’s no longer available. Similar patterns here: BP-L018 (item #19373)
- Small dotting tool
How absolutely adorable did this Rudolf turn out? I liked pairing it with the sweater pattern on my nails too, because it reminded me of a pair of leggings that are my favourite to wear for Christmas, but more grown up. Not that I have any issue with wearing silly or crazy nail art–because I don’t–but I like to share a little bit of everything. A simple reindeer accent nail would definitely work for someone who just wanted a little bit of Christmas nail art on their nails. & if you didn’t want the sweater nails, you could do something like a glitter gradient or gradient dotticure on your other fingers. That what’s I love about nail art: you can adjust it to suit whatever style you have, whether it’s crazy over the top or more muted & subdued. There is something for everyone & every mood.
Seriously, how cute is this rudolf? I’m obsessed. Also I think I use this particular image so much between November & March. It’s one of my absolute favourites. So many manicure options! Also I think the red nose would be even cuter with an itty bitty red rhinestone (which was my original plan) but I couldn’t find my rhinestones so I had to settle with red glittery polish.
What do you think about this Reindeer look? Who is your favourite reindeer?
