The 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge Day 11: Presents

     Today's theme for the 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge is Presents. Hooray, we all love presents! Are you the kind to rip into those brightly wrapped gifts, or do you like to take your time and save the wrapping paper? I myself tend to do whatever the moment calls for.
     My manicure today is about the gift when it's wrapped, even though I have opened gifts on the brain these days. Who can blame me with Christmas only 4 days away?

     I started with 2 coats of Lost Without my Blogger. A glitter packed clear based polish with flashes of white, green and, gold. Then I matted it. After that dried I doodled some ribbons and bows with a gold and white stripers and matted it again.


     There are things I like about this manicure and a few things that I don't. The nails with bows on them turned out how I had wanted. The ones with just the ribbons not so much. I think I should have added a bow or maybe used fewer lines. But I'm ok with the finished results. And now here are a few more present manicures. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

  2. Thanks Lisa. I've never used a glitter polish like this as a base for nail art before. Trying to shake things up a bit when it comes to my nail art these days.

  4. I love the glittery base and green is my favorite color of all. Hahaha I unwrap my presents carefully and don't tear the tape or paper and it drives everyone crazy because it takes me so long to open a present.

  6. If I really love the paper I will take my time every time. It's when my kids are acting up that I usually rush through and tear into them.
