December 22 | Textured snowflakes

Hello there, or good night (since it’s 11pm in Sweden right now). Today was my last day at work this year and it’s gonna be so nice to have a little vacation!

For day 22 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I’m showing you these textured snowflake nails from last winter.

Here I used Alpine snow and Kiss me at midnight from OPI and Snowflake stencils from Snail vinyls. I have to admit that after these photos were taken I instantly added top coat. I like the look of textured nails, but I hate the feel of textured nails. They stick to my tights (I almost always wear dresses) and clothes and I don’t like that. How do you feel about textured nails?

December 21 | Gingerbread man

I think I mentioned a couple of days ago that one of my nails broke and is really really short now. I had to trim the other nails as well, but it looks really weird with the one super short nail. :/ I thought that I could just take photos of Cindy instead, but it turns out Cindy can’t pose at all, she just looks like a claw. So for these last few days until Christmas I decided to share some manis that I made last Christmas.

For this mani I used Alpine snow, What’s your point-settia?, Christmas gone plaid and You don’t know Jaques! from OPI together with Straight vinyls and Gingerbread man stencils form Snail vinyls.

Hi there, today it’s only four days until Christmas eve! And today I got the last Christmas presents, good job Hanna.

For day 20 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I made some simple silver stars. This mani kinda reminds me of the glitter in the Christmas tree.

For this mani I used Dark Green BPR005 and Stamping plate Celebration BPX-L008 from Born Pretty and I drive a SuperNova from OPI.

December 14 | Candy cane

Today is day 14 of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator and that means that it’s been two weeks of Christmas manis and that it’s only 10 days left until Christmas! Have you started buying Christmas gifts yet? I have bough a few, but I still have some left to get.

Today I’ve made candy cane nails and they are look so shiny and tasty, I almost want to eat them.

The base is my favorite white polish called Alpine snow and I paired it with Let your love shine from last years holiday collection from OPI. The candy canes are made with Candy cane stencils and Gift wrap stencils from Snail Vinyls.

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 8 | Reindeer

For day eight of 24 days of Christmas by Hanninator I tried a technique I never tried before, reverse stamping. I really like the result and I’m gonna try this technique again soon!

The red polish is from OPI’s 2012 Skyfall holiday collection and it’s called The spy who loved me. It is so pretty and a real favorite for Christmas. For the Reindeer I used Alpine snow, Lady in black, Shh… It’s top secret!, Squeaker of the house, Stay off the lawn! (all from OPI) and new stamping plate Festive 46 from MoYou London.
