Nail Polish Canada is hosting an awesome nail art contest this month with some kick ass prizes! They invited me to participate and I was ecstatic to come up with some designs. Last week I had a design all planned out and unfortunately just ran out of time with the whole Black Friday shopping extravaganza! This week's theme is gifts, presents, stockings and anything to do with the awesome presents you want for Christmas!
I started brainstorming what I would really like for Christmas, and honestly there isn't much! One of my favourite things about Christmas is wrapping presents. I love giving things to other people and love wrapping them up! I spend lots of time picking out paper and bows and ribbons, my mom has even taught me how to make my own bows with big ribbons. What can I say I love Christmas! So I decided to create some wrapping paper on my nails!
I googled Christmas wrapping paper designs and found some gorgeous paper, seriously wanted to print some of them off and start wrapping already! :D
I used Sally Hansen Ion on my thumb, index and ring nails, on my middle nail I used Barielle Glammed Out Garnet and on my pinky I used China Glaze Merry Berry. All the gold detail was done with Essence A Piece Of Forever from the Breaking Dawn 2 Collection and the green is Barielle Date Night. All of the details were done with a tiny brush that I cut down to make even smaller :)
My middle nail was supposed to be mittens and the string connecting them, but I'm not sure it played out as well. I think my pinky nail is my favourite. I might have to do a full set of nails like that soon!
Well what do you think of my wrapping paper nails?! I had a lot of fun making them and now all I want to do is wrap a bajillion presents and make a million bows.
If you like these I would LOVE if you would head over to Nail Polish Canada and vote here for my nails!
I'm so excited it's December. Christmas and my birthday are this month so it's pretty much the best month ever. Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday! Love you all!
