I did, however, find the time to do a cute and easy holiday design yesterday! Last week, I saw this super awesome Hanukkah mani from Lacquered Lover and decided to do a red over the OPI Goldeneye instead to represent Christmas. We decided on OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress and I think it turned out to be a great match!
After letting 2 coats of OPI Goldeneye dry, I did one coat of OPI I'm Not Really A Waitress and then took a small ball of crumpled up saran wrap and dabbed it onto the wet red to pull some color up and show the gold base. I did this one nail at a time so the polish was wet and pulled up easily. It creates a neat, marbled effect and I love it!
I also have been seeing these triangle tape Christmas tree nail designs all over lately and thought it would be a cute accent nail design. I just took 2 pieces of striping tape and made a triangle, painted one coat of Zoya Veruschuka and peeled up the tape while the polish was still wet. I then painted on some Red Dog Designs Unicorn Kisses glitter polish for "ornaments" on the tree. Next, a dab of top coat and a nail art star to top the tree. I used a coat of Maya Cosmetics Smoothing Coat followed by a coat of Poshe to cover the thick, sharp star. I was shocked at how well the Smoothing Coat covered the star! Definitely like it more than Gelous.
Now that I'm done blabbing, onto the pics!
What do you think? Thanks for reading!
