Good morning lovelies & happy Monday! & happy 6 days until Christmas Day! I worked a very busy weekend, & the Christmas shopping rush is real. Now if only it would actually feel like Christmas was on its way. Currently, they’re calling for 10 degrees (Celsius) & thunder & lightning on Christmas Eve.
You know what is festive though? My nails for the next Glam Nails Challenge prompt, which is Candy Cane. I was really excited for this prompt, because I had this idea of doing a Candy Cane French Manicure. This idea has been floating around in my head for a while, & I was so excited my nails were finally long enough I could!
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
- Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Ski Bunny
- Sally Hansen MG Red It Twice
- French Tip Guides
- NailStuff.ca Mermaid Tail Nail Brush Trio (11mm Liner Brush)
I know I say this almost every time, but how cute are these?! I got some many compliments on this design at work! It’s super simple, but just the right amount of festive. Which fits with retail style because I’ve been all about the Christmas Sweaters, fuzzy socks, & any head band that feels a little Christmas-y. After a long time in retail, I’ve accumulated quite the Christmas work wardrobe.
Also this was the last manicure I managed to do before a very tragic break on my middle finger nail. You can kind of see there was a little spot in it that I had previously hit. It wasn’t a break or a crack, but it was enough that I hit it off my fridge door & now I’m back to big time shorties.
Are you following along with Glam Nails Challenge December on Instagram? Are you enjoying the manicures that you’ve seen so far? We have a few more prompts to go… 3 I think? That’s crazy!
& I hope you’re ready for some super short nail looks! Because that’s what we have coming up for the remainder of the month.
Have an awesome rest of your Monday!
