The 12 Mani's of X-mas Day 3: Food


     Well here it is day 3 of the 12 Mani's of X-mas Challenge. How have you been enjoying the challenge so far? Haven't the ladies been doing a great job! We are officially 1/4th of the way through and today's theme is food.


     When I think of Christmas food I think of all the candies that are specific to the season, but trying to recreate those candies on my nails turned out to be quite the challenge. In the end I decided to focus on candy canes and a gingerbread man.


     For my base I used my go to white polish Milani White on The Spot. I added the red striped with a stripe rite striper. I made the little gingerbread man with my smallest dotting tool and Milani Dark Coffee. The eyes are China Glaze Sci-Fly-By and the mouth was done with an old NYC red polish my mom recently gave me.

     I have been having so much fun with this challenge so far, be sure to stop back on the 7th for the next theme. But in the mean time, don't forget to check out the other participants manicures from today's theme and Happy Polishing!

    1. Awe thank you. He was a lot of fun to do, and pretty easy to be honest. I was shocked that I didn't have to utter some choice words under my breath while painting him. Nail art is not my strong suit, but Im still having fun with this challenge.=)
