All the blogs are full of snowflakes, Santas and reindeers but I am not feeling it. I just don't want to wear manicures that blend in the crowd of art that others are posting. Why make Holiday nails seem silly and childish with the same designs all the time?
Therefore I decided to make an elegant manicure that still seems festive enough to be a part of any December nail art collection ;)
I wanted to create a look that is a combination of very opaque dark color and happy glitter that is a must in this time of the year *see I can be traditional* But since I didn't have a base polish that would match my idea I made a mix of what I have to create the perfect base.
To make the base I used Essence Time for romance. It is a dark almost brown glitter polish that just does not look happy enough for this time of the year. So over it I applied 1 coat of Catrice Marilyn & Me, that is a sheer red but filled with micro glitters as you can see from the bottle on the picture. Together they formed a perfect red glitter base.
To finish the nail art I applied some vintage and elegant pattern that fits perfectly. I used BP-17 stamping plate and Mundo de Unas Dark green stamping polish that is so opaque the contrast they create is magnificent. I adore these nails and they turned out just as I imagined! <3
