Its that time of year again. Christmas shopping, cookie baking, holiday parties and in my house the plague. The one thing my children share no matter what without fail is their germs, and after being nurse mommy for the last 3 weeks it's my turn so today's post is going to be a quick one.
This week both the Hobby Polish Bloggers monthly link up and the 40 Great Nail Art Ideas challenge have lined up perfectly so I can share my Christmas manicure for both with one post. I love it when things work out in my favor. Now most of you know I have been doing the color/pattern prompt for the challenge but this week I'm breaking from my regular schedule to join in on a theme week. Because of the holidays the color prompts were taking quite a long break and I wanted to keep my nail art momentum going. Now for today's nail art look....
Thanks to my hectic home life right now I opted for something simple and easy to create. And I actually like the results, I feel very festive and fun even as I sit here in my sweats.
To create this look I used Fair Maiden Fire Frost as the base for my accent nail and Darling Diva Don't Call me, I'll Call You for the rest. What you can't see in my photos is my thumb nail (I tried to include it for you but the pictures just looked awkward and not suitable for viewing) which is also painted with Fire Frost and a red rhinestone to help tie the whole thing together.
I used some new nail vinyls from KBShimmer to make my peppermint swirl design. The rhinestones I picked up from Dollar Nail Art and add just the right amount of bling for me. If you haven't checkout out Dollar Nail Art and you're a fan of embellishments I highly recommend them.
So there you have it. A quick and simple nail art look that's easy to create for the holidays. Let me know what you think of this look before you check out the other talented ladies. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
