Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! This week is certainly speeding by. The whole month is speeding by! It’s kind of crazy.
Today I have prompt #3 for #GlamNailsChallengeDec — Holly! Holly is definitely a classic Christmas nail art design, but instead of going with the classic depiction of holly we see this time of year, I wanted to go with a more rustic interpretation.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
- Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
- OPI This Isn’t Greenland
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
- Essie Off Tropic
- Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Red My Lips
- OPI Suzy & The Arctic Fox
- L’Oréal Feeling Kilty
- NailStuff.ca 4mm Micro Detail Brush (COFFEE10 saves you 10%!)
- NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio
Originally I though I might go with the traditional holly look, but after browsing Pinterest, I decided I wanted to go a different direction. Maybe it’s because I haven’t done any floral designs in longer than I can remember—what is that about—that I needed to go with the next best thing. & the end result just looks so pretty to me.
I wanted to get a picture with the holly bush in our front yard, but sadly the birds are all the holly berries off our holly bush, so it’s looking pretty naked.
What do you think about this design? Do you like my take on the holly prompt? Have you been keeping track of all the other beautiful designs for this challenge? Let me know in the comments below.
