It's hard to believe that today is already 3rd advent and Christmas is just two weeks ahead. I'm slowly getting into that Christmas mood, mainly because of this nail art challenge as I'm looking at those holiday designs all the time. And I even already got all the presents for friends and family so I hope to avoid the typical Christmas stress shortly before the holidays.
Today's design is wreathes - or in my case wreath as I did only one as an accent nail ;)
The base color I used is Maybelline Colorama Beige Love. This polish is actually pretty old and I haven't used it in quite a while - after I applied it I remembered why: It's pretty brush strokey and has a slight frost finish. After it had tried it looked a little better. The good thing was I needed only one coat for full coverage and it dried quickly. To make the wreath with the bow I used only Essence products (but that was just a coincidence ;D): Matte Tip Painter Green Grass from the I Love Berlin LE, White Tip Painter, Silver Surfer Tip Painter and Color and Go Red-y To Go as well as Tip Painter Mysterious Black. I finished everything off with a coat of Seche Vite.
I really love this challenge although I never thought I could do so many free hand nail designs... but it's so much fun and I enjoy looking at all the other pretty Holiday designs. So please go and see Bridget's and Shannara's wreathes, too.
That's it for today. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and I'll see you tomorrow for the next design which is Holly!
