Good morning & happy Christmas Eve Eve. 2 more days until Christmas—can you believe it? Are you ready? Our tree is decorated, our presents still need wrapping, & hopefully we have all the fixings for Christmas dinner haha. But my nails… my nails are definitely ready!
Today’s prompt for #GlamNailsChallengeDec is Christmas Tree, & I took some inspiration from a few designs I saw on Instagram for this dainty tree accent nail. This design has a little bit of everything — stamping, glitter, some teeny tiny freehanding. I’m super proud of how they turned out!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
- Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Shiny Top Coat
- Rimmel London 60 Second Camouflage
- Essie Off Tropic
- Essence Give It Nude, Baby!
- Starrily Vantablack
- Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate (sadly no longer available)
- NailStuff.ca Clear Stamper (COFFEE10 saves you 10%)
- NailStuff.ca 4mm Micro Detail Brush
- NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio
Check out the close up of this accent nail!
I started off by stamping the Christmas tree pattern onto the nail with Essie Off Tropic, which isn’t perfect for stamping but worked. Then I went in with Camouflage & filled in some spots on the trees. Next I took my teeny micro detail brush from NailStuff.ca, & drew in the brand details over top. & finally, I used some glitters from my bottle of ORLY Glitterbomb to add a little bit of sparkle on top (which I think really completes the whole look!)
& of course, I needed a shot of my nails & my Christmas tree (& Batman ornament!)
What do you think of this Christmas tree look? Is this a cute Christmas Day look? Are you ready for Christmas? Let me know in the comments below!
