A Merry Little Christmas

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

For my final bit of Christmas themed nail art, I wanted to try something a bit different but had absolutely NO inspiration. But then I had the stupendous idea of looking at Christmas cards for ideas and found a contemporary style that would look awesome on nails;


I started with a base of Orly 'Coachella Dweller' which is a lovely soft apple green. I don't think I have anything else like this in my collection, so a great addition!


Then, using my striper brush and Zoya 'Blaze' (aaah SO Christmassy!!), I painted a deer silhouette (from the Christmas card) on my thumb and a half one on my middle nail. Normally 'Blaze' is a deep pink but the green underneath brings out the red tones here!


On my remaining nails (pinkie, ring and pointer) I painted on the roughly shaped baubles (from the Christmas card) using Zoya 'Blaze' and Barry M 'Guava'. I didn't use a dotting tool as the baubles were meant to be kinda lopsided! I added some 'star' details on some of the bigger baubles with Essie 'Blanc'.


And of course as it's Christmas and I'll use any excuse, I added some glitter to a few baubles with Barry M 'Aqua Glitter' and Barry M 'Pink Sapphire Glitter'. Finished off with Essie 'No Chips Ahead'.

I love love these nails, They are just so dandy and awesome!! I'm definitely going to use Christmas cards for inspiration in the future!!

Thanks for reading and enjoy the holidays!!!
