Glam Nails Challenge December — Gingebread

Hello loves & Happy Thursday!

Technically I meant to post this manicure yesterday, but between crazy busy Christmas rushes at work, & Bubba’s first Christmas concert, my mind got a little displaced. Whoops! I’m excited, though, to share this gingerbread look I did for the next prompt of Glam Nails Challenge December.

This is officially the half way point of the challenge, &… even crazier, we only have a week & a half left until Christmas. I’ve literally done no baking, our tree isn’t up… this year is definitely getting the best of me. But at least I’ve managed a few cute festive designs so far this month.

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
  • Sinful Colors Essenchills Coffee Drip
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Ski Bunny
  • Mermaid Tail Nail Brush Trio (11mm Liner Brush)

This look was inspired by this look that I found on Pinterest. I loved the idea of turning your nail into the gingerbread cookie itself. Mine came out a bit more… rustic than my inspiration. But I still think it was a cute idea, & I especially love my ring & pointer finger. I went into this design without a clear vision of what I wanted to do, & I think that’s where my nail art went a bit sideways. Either way, I love this overall look, & I think it’s a fun take on this prompt!

What do you think of this Gingerbread inspired design? Have you been busy with Christmas/Holiday planning? Have you gotten any baking done yet? Let me know down in the comments below. &, as always, I encourage you to check out all the beautiful designs for this month’s  Glam Nails Challenge December on Instagram!
