Holo-day Nail Art

Christmas came early for me as I received a parcel from Wrenn Polish on Monday. I have swatches coming on Sunday of all three shades I received, but in the meantime how about some sneak peak nail art featuring one of these gorgeous polishes! I was feeling some untraditional Christmas nails for decorating our house, so I picked Enchanted, a stunning pink linear holo, & decided to make it Christmas-y. I’ve always dreamed of having an all purple Christmas tree! This is probably as close as my husband will let me get haha.

For this manicure, the polishes used were:

  • Base Coat: NailTek 2 Foundations
  • Top Coat: Seche Vite
  • Wrenn Polish Enchanted
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Troublemaker
  • MyNailsDid Christmas Tree Vinyls
  • Medium sized dotting tool

Can we just talk about how beautiful this polish is? If you read my previous post about the Wrenn polish shades I own, you’ll know I was very impressed with this Indie brand. Alissa makes just the most incredible shades & I love that they’re all inspired by her handcrafted jewelry. You’ll have to wait until Sunday to find out my thoughts on all three of the newly released shades I received, but spoiler I’m in love. The holo in Enchanted is beyond impressive. Even in the grey cloudy weather we’ve been having, it was hard not to stare at the shift. I have quite a few holo shades in my collection, but nothing like this!

If you want to get your hands on Wrenn Polish Enchanted, you can find it here.

More Sweater Nails

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have watched my Instagram story & saw I broke my middle nail super short earlier this week. Like–beyond baby nails. But I do have some unposted manicures I was saving up for after we moved & I’m unpacking, so I’ll have a few long nails designs to share in the meantime.

Like these sweater nails! Who doesn’t love rocking sweater nails? With the dropping temperatures outside, I know I’ve been wearing nothing but my thickest sweaters (I don’t do well with the cold). So why not paint my nails to match?

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Essie Grow Stronger
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Pat On The Black
  • Essie Topless & Barefoot
  • China Glaze Life is Rosy
  • URSugar Nail Stencil item AUB39877 — click to buy
  • MyNailsDid Nail Vinyl sweater pattern vinyl (they’re back up on her site!) & straight nail vinyls
  • NailStuff.ca small circle studs–Gold Mixed Decoration Nail wheel 
  • Small dotting tool

I just love how these turned out. I feel like the differing colours & patterns just bring the whole look together. I could honestly probably do this manicure in every colour combination possible, & never get tired of it! A little green & red & bam! You have perfect ugly Christmas sweater nails for your holiday party. (& now I must remember that because that is so happening now!)

Just looking at this design is making me really miss my long nails already. 😢 But rocking baby nubs just gives me the opportunity to come up with awesome & Pretty nail art for short nails. I’ve already got a few manicures I’m working on, so you’ll have to stay tuned! & if you have any requests, let me know.
