Driving (getting the train) Home for Christmas Nails

I eschewed the glitter for my Christmas journey home and went or abstract red and green patterns. I had some kind of Santa-ish patterns in my head when I started, but as ever time runs out and I went abstract, although somehow it reminds me of elves.

You’re going to see some odd lighting while I’m at my parents’ house, but I’m making the best of it…

We’ve got Models Own – Garnet and a green China Glaze the name of which escapes me I’m afraid!

This was nice for a day, but hopefully I’ll be going full on glitterbomb for the day itself…

Advent Nail Art Challenge Day 3 – Green

I’m going to come right out and say it, these are my favourite Advent Challenge nails so far. But first, here’s a straight up swatch of my base colour China Glaze Jolly Holly from their 2010 Holiday Collection.

This is gorgeous and Christmassy all on its own right?

But I didn’t want to leave it there, so I applied striping tape in a bit of an abstract fashion and painted over with one of the Snowman polishes I picked up in Rite Aid last time I was in the US. It’s a minty tealy green glitter that I wasn’t sure would be complimentary, but it’s worked a treat!

Even though the striping is random, somehow this makes me think of wreaths and strips of fairy lights and makes me even more impatient for Christmas…
