Advent Nail Art Challenge Day 10 – Lights

I tell you what, I’m struggling with this advent challenge. I’ve got so much on this week and next week that there’s no way I’m going to manage nail art every day (experience tells me that my best work is not done drunk at midnight…) It’s pissing me off that I’m posting things that would normally never see the light of day, I want to try and keep the quality of the blog as high as I can and that just isn’t going to happen if I try and keep this up.

Plus, it’s Christmas and really I just want to wear glitter. Nothing but glitter. All the time.

So I think I’m going to dip in and out when I can, but I’m not going to manage to complete the full 24 days.

However, I have had a go at ‘Lights’. I think everyone’s seen a version of this mani around the internets, so I thought I’d have a go. We’ve got old faithful Sally Hansen – White On and Orly – Liquid Vinyl, plus glitter from one of my Snowman polishes for the lights.

Perhaps not my best work, but not too bad…!

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…

And don’t forget to check out everyone else who’s participating in the Advent Challenge, Polish Alcoholic is kindly keeping a list.
