December 6 | Happy holodays

It’s day six of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator and I hope you’re not tired of the holiday manis yet, because you’ll be seeing a lot more the next few weeks.

The base for this festive mani is Encore Margot from A-England. For the details I used Shh… It’s top secret!, Got the mean reds, Stay off the lawn!, Squeaker of the house and Alpine snow from OPI together with Reindeer stencils, Christmas stocking stencils, Christmas tree stencils and Gingerbread man stencils from Snail Vinyls.

Today is day five of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator and for today I’ve made some simple and elegant half moon snowflake nails.

The base for this mani is the beautiful blue scattered holo Freya’s cats from piCture pOlish. I used it together with bright white (also from pp) and Jolly snowflake stencils from What’s up nails.

Hope you like these winter-y nails and check back for more nail art tomorrow!

December 4 | Stars

For the forth day of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I’ve made stars using polishes from Depend’s new holiday collection Season Sparkle. There are so many pretty polishes in that collection and I’m sure I’ll use them for more holiday nail art.

The black polish is called Bedtime stories and the silver is called Holiday spirit. The stars are made with Stars stencils from What’s up nails.

Depend O2 Rough Glitter

Just in time for Christmas Depend releases two nail polish collections that are perfect for the festivities. The first collection is called Rough Glitter and it consists of six polishes in the O2 formula. The polishes are textured (as the name applies) and they can be worn with or without top coat, depending on if you want a matte or a glossy finish.

I have swatched the polishes with and without top coat (I used one coat of Gel setter from Essie).

img_1937

I really like this collection but I have a confession to make. I love the look of textured polishes but I hate wearing them. I mostly wear dresses and tights and textured polishes and tights don’t go well together.

img_1938

My favorites are Mr Snowman (the gold) and Frosty star (the green).

December 3 | Holly

Last Christmas I spent many hours looking for a green glitter polish to use for Christmas nail art, sadly I didn’t find any good. I eventually found Running in circles from China Glaze but didn’t get it until January this year, so I haven’t used it for any holiday manis (yet). This Christmas I have a few to choose from but I think that the green I chose for this mani is the most perfect one (and I’m pretty sure you’ll see more of it this Christmas).

img_1967

The perfect Christmas green is called hercyna, and I used it together with o’hara and bright white, all from piCture pOlish, and Holly nail stencils from Snail Vinyls.

When I was opening my X-mas calendar from Essie I realized that the nails matched perfectly, and it was not intentional.

Nail mail | Snail vinyls

Earlier this week I got an envelope full of holiday vinyls from Snail vinyls. They will be perfect for my 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator theme. I have already used one of them and I will post that mani later today!

If you wanna get some holiday vinyls too you can buy a variety pack with seven holiday vinyls on their website for $15,99.

December 2 | Christmas ornaments

How are you today? I’m feeling really nauseous, so I’m staying home from work. Hope I won’t get sick.

For today’s 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I’ve made Christmas ornaments.

img_1674

The base for this mani is Pinot Noir from Il était un vernis, the ornaments are made with My favorite ornament from OPI and Ornament stencils from What’s up nails.

This is the first time I’m trying a polish from Il était un vernis, I got a few during Black Friday, and so far I’m impressed. I got some really pretty shades, so I’m sure I’ll like them all!

Come back tomorrow for more Christmas nail art!

December 1 | Tiny gingerbread men

December is here and so is 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator! I will bring you new nail art everyday until Christmas Eve.

My first holiday mani is one with tiny gingerbread men.

img_1604

The base for this design is Nut’n better from Cupcake polish. I stamped the gingerbread men using Alpine snow from OPI, Stamping plate Princess 16 and Crystal clear stamper from MoYou London.

img_1605

I’m a bit sad that they don’t show up as good as I had hoped, but the result turned out pretty cute anyway. Maybe I should have used a brown creme polish as the base for this design instead of a holo. But Nut’n better reminds me of gingerbread so that’s why I chose this shade.

Come back for more holiday nail art tomorrow!

November favorites

I can’t believe that it’s already December. It’s the last month of the year and how crazy is that!? This year has gone by so fast! Anyway, here are my favorite manis from November. Can you tell that I’m exited about making winter nail art?

img_1554

My absolute favorite of these is the last one with the frosty snowflakes.
