Variations of a Theme- Christmas Nails


This year Christmas is not a big deal. No decorations, no turkey (well, I am going to cook turkey breast, but no full on, wings and giblets type deal), no out of town family, no wrapped gifts, no stress, no big deal. We had a shitty year, and for the most aren't feeling too festive. Grinch-y enough for you? All that aside, I do enjoy a themed nail every now and then, so maybe, just maybe my heart isn't two sizes too small.

 Look #1

Green= China Glaze Holly Day
Red= China Glaze Phat Santa 
Glitter= China Glaze Party Hearty
Essie Matte About You

Simple but festive. I knew I had to use Party Hearty at least once over the holidays because it just isn't appropriate any other time of year. It's elf barf in a bottle. I am currently digging my glitters matte, so I topped everything off with Matte About You. I was never a fan of the whole matte look, but I really dig Holly Day matte.


 Look #2

White= Revlon Matte Suede Powder Puff
Assorted Nail Art Stones

As you can see, I've been collecting nail art stones in every size I can find. I love the look of gem clusters but up until now, I never do them. I used Powder Puff instead of a normal white polish, because I like that it is just that bit softer and less harsh, and because it has a fine shimmer. Unlike the last look I wasn't feeling very matte like, so I topped this off with Seche Vite (killing off the suede finish that makes Powder Puff so unique.)


"I'll just sit back here..."
"wait, are you sure you know what you're doing?"

Fish Face was my helper during the editing phase of this post. She wishes you all a Merry Christmas and all that jazz.
