This manicure is for the third and final installment of the Holiday Nail Art Challenge hosted by NailPolishCanada. The theme for the week is Trim the Tree: Lights, ornaments, tinsel, frosting, heck, even popcorn on a string if that’s your thing. Let’s see your nails all dolled up like a Christmas Tree! The design for this challenge was inspired by Chalkboard Nails‘ amazing Eye of Sauron manicure which is, hands down, one of my favorite manicures ever. I chose to do a Christmas tree in the snow at night, one of my favorite holiday sights – it always makes me feel warm and fuzzy :)
The gradient is done with OPI Banana Bandana, OPI Unfor-Greta-Bly Blue, and A-England Lady of Shallot, using a foam sponge. The lights on the trees are glitters I fished out Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday and Cherimoya Fire Work. I love how sparkly the little tree is!
Winners are selected by vote, so please take a moment to go check out the gallery and vote for your favorite design. People have really upped the ante with this last challenge, and we all appreciate your votes! Once again, thanks to the lovely people at NailPolishCanada for organizing this challenge! The motivation has been great for pushing me to try more elaborate designs :D
