The 12 Days of X-mas mani's day 6: Decorations
We are officially halfway through the 12 Days of X-mas Mani's challenge and today's theme is Decorations.
I am a day behind on the challenge and needed to do something quick. Originally I had the idea to do a different design on each nail and really challenge myself with my free hand art but my life had other plans for me.
I decided to go with a simple stamped manicure that was slightly nontraditional in color. I used Zoya Storm as my base. A black based polish with a strong scattered holo. Gorgeous on its own but also a great base for nail art. I then used Maybelline Bold gold with Bundle Monster plate BM-SE1. The effect is a subtle stamped image with lots of sparkles. I topped the whole thing off with Simply Quick top coat from nailcarehq.com.
This manicure was hard to capture with my camera. The holo in storm kept wanting to overpower the image and made my camera freak out. I wish I could have gotten a better picture because this manicure really is pretty in real life.
The macro shot captured the depth of this mani. I like how the gold plays well with the holo making it look like the decorations have formed like constellations in a night sky. Not too shabby for a quickly thrown together last minute idea!
