Hello lovelies & happy Monday!
I’ve got 3 more (long) days of work & then I’m excited for 4 whole days of Christmas vacation. & my plan for this week is to (hopefully) post a Christmas design every single day leading up to Christmas Day! 🎄
& today we’re starting off with the next prompt for GlamNailsChallengeDecember: Cookies! & I decided to go with some Gingerbread inspired nail art.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie First Base
- Top Coat: Seche Vive
- Essence Intergalactic Adventure
- Starrily Eclipse
- OPI How Great Is Your Dane?
- Quo by Orly Breathable Bare Necessities
- NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush
I’m super impressed with how these turned out –they came together exactly like how I pictured in my head. Right down to my lack of decorating skills on my cookies (you should see my real life cookies! Haha)
Originally I had thought about doing everything over a holographic pink base, but when I saw this shifty base sitting in my stash. I just had such an urge to use it! I added some holo over top to give off a little extra sparkle. The cookies were completely freehanded using my NailStuff 7mm brush, which made things easy & I’m really happy with how they turned out. I even managed to freehand not one, but two stars on my nails–for the first time ever–so even though my “decorating” looks as bad as my real life decorating, my actual cookies made me feel pretty proud.
What do you think about this design for GlamNailsChallenge? Would you ever attempt a design like this? How are your cookie decorating skills?
