December 18 | Ornaments

Hi there! So yesterday something sad happened, I broke my middle finger nail. It has had a cut for almost two weeks now, and I have tried to fix it with the teabag method just so it could grow out a bit before I had to cut it. Unfortunately the nail wanted to break even more and there was not much to do but to cut it, so I’ve unwillingly joined the nub club. The good thing is that I have a couple of Christmas designs left to show, but I wish that I would have been able to get all 24 with my nails still long and pretty.

Today is day 18 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator and I’ve made some ornaments.

For this mani I used The spy who loved me from OPI, Space race from H&M and stamping plate B003 Sweater Weather from What’s up nails.

December 13 | Snowflakes

For day 13 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I made snowflakes. I think this is the fourth mani with snowflakes that I’ve made in just a few weeks, I guess you could say I’m obsessed! ❄️

I wanted to make some snowflakes over I believe in manicures and then I saw a mani that I loved, so I had to recreate it. And I love how they turned out!

As I said the base is I believe in manicures and used it together with It’s frosty outside, Alpine snow and stamping plate B003 Sweater weather from What’s up nails.

December 10 | Ugly Christmas sweater

For day 10 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I made some ugly Christmas sweater nails (I think they’re cute rather than ugly).

The base is my favorite white polish Alpine snow by OPI. I spammed the pattern using stamping plate B003 Sweater weather from What’s up nails, glitch and o’hara from piCture pOlish.

December 7 | Christmas sweater

What is Christmas without an ugly Christmas sweater? The last couple of years it has exploded, hasn’t it? I actually got myself my fist christmas sweater a few weeks ago and it’s a really cute one! How do you feel about these sweaters, yay or nay?

Well, the patterns we see on those sweaters make great nail art, so thats what I’m wearing on my nails today.

The red polish I’m using here is called Cinnamon sweet and it is from OPI’s 2014 Gwen Stefani holiday collection. The white polish is as always Alpine snow. To create the sweater pattern I used Christmas sweater stencils from What’s up nails. The stencils are from last year but you can find some that are similar here.

I felt like the nails needed to be mattified, so I used Matte top coat from OPI and here is the finished result.

Which version do you prefer, matte or glossy? I like the matte version the most!

December 5 | Half moon snowflakes

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.

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!
