Good morning lovelies & happy Wednesday! & happy Day two of Glam Nails Challenge December. Also… can you believe it’s December 7th? I mean… it’s raining here on the East Coast & above freezing so it certainly doesn’t feel anything close to December. At least I have Christmas nails to keep me in a somewhat festive mood.
But onto the nails — prompt #2 is Christmas Plaid. I do love a good plaid manicure, & for today’s look I decided to go with a sparkly plaid design.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
- Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
- Top Coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-chip Top Coat
- Quo Beauty Green With Envy
- ACO by Ardene Crystal Fog
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Red It Twice
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
- China Glaze New Year, New Boo
- W7 Gold Dazzle
- Mermaid Tail Nail Brush Trio (11mm Liner Brush)
Originally I thinking of a sparkly green plaid, but as soon as I put Crystal Fog over Green with Envy it gave it a teal/turquoise colour instead. But I decided to go with it, & I think all the sparkly lines still give it the Christmas Plaid look I was hoping for. & I do love all the sparkle & shimmer of the look. If there is any time to break out the glitter, it’s obviously Christmas.
What do you think about my Christmas plaid design? What colour combination would you wear for a Christmas plaid. I feel like usually I go for more a red look, but I’ve been wearing a lot of red nails lately (& I’m sure there will be more!) so it’s fun to change things up a bit.
Don’t forget to check out all the fun #glamnailschallengedec looks on Instagram, & stay tuned because we have a whole lot more Christmas-y looks coming in the next few weeks!

Christmas teal for the win!
I do love a Christmas Teal. Trying to not just go straight red on every design this year!
I love how this turned out, and love that you tried a non-red plaid (evvvverybody does that! lol). The gold glitter is just the right amount of sparkle to make this super pretty but not over-the top! I’ve been contemplating doing a green-based plaid on my own nails for a while. I’ve gotta ask though, how long did it take you to do this?
Thanks so much for the lovely words! I have been wanting to do a green-ish plaid for a while too. I’d say this look took me maybe an hour from start to finish. I feel like drawing the stripes themselves was not quite 2 Seinfeld Episodes haha.
An hour isn’t too bad – it turned out GREAT! And great way to spend an hour – nail s & Kramer! 😀
