Merry Christmas!

I know I've been gone for nearly half a year, but thats about to change! I plan on reviving the blog for the New Year. Until then I'm working on building a white box so that I can take better photographs of my nails and other products. In a nutshell I stopped posting because I was sick of the terrible quality of photos that I was taking, largely due to lighting.

I thought I'd just drop buy and post a picture of my Christmas manicure. With that in mind excuse the quality of these photos. I tried my best with what I had =]

Products Used:
Sally Hansen Hard As Wraps - Sheer Pink (base coat)
Orly Devil May Care
Orly Torrid
China Glaze Party Hearty
China Glaze Jolly Holly
Orly Luxe

  • I put one coat of Torrid on every nail. 
  • On all nails besides my accent nail, I painted a coat of Devil May Care on top of Torrid.
  • For my accent nail I taped off a triangle for a Christmas tree, and then laid some striping tape over that for the stripey bits. 
  • Painted a thick coat of Jolly Holly over the top of that and then removed the tape pretty much immediately. 
  • I carefully painted a thin coat of Party Hearty over just the tree part of my accent nail.
  • I used a pencil tip to dot a little gold spot on top of the tree for a star (I shoulda used a star confetti piece now that I think of it... owell haha)
  • Waited for everything to dry a bit and then globbed on a coat of Seche Vite
Well theres my super quick Christmas mani post. I look forward to coming back and blogging, I'm finally inspired for the first time in months. For anyone who actually reads this, thanks!

  1. Love these! Great to see you posting again :) I know what you mean about lighting and photos, it's hard to find the right place. Luckily I have a large white windowsill which seems to work for me, white box is a great idea :) xx
