Merry Christmas!

Hello lacquered lovelies! Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate, and I hope everyone is having a lovely Sunday!

I just wanted to write a quick post about what I'm currently wearing - this was my opening presents mani, since I'm going to repaint my nails soon! It was simple but really cute and I got a lot of compliments tehe.

I started out with a careful coat of Orly Sweet Peacock, which is OPI Swimsuit... Nailed It! etc. Bright blue foily colours like this are a bit like the Charla of this year... though I think we all know what this year's Charla was! Then I sponged China Glaze Frosty on the tips... I love Frosty. It's so freaking gorgeous and deceptively complex. I want to wear it all the time. <3

So, after waiting for that to dry, I stamped using Konad M12 and Sally Hansen White On. I stamped the snowman (he looks like he has little drunk bubbles, I love him) on all of my nails except my ring finger, which got a candy cane instead. Then I filled in the snowman's scarf and part of the candy cane with a dotting tool and China Glaze Ruby Pumps, which wasn't the most perfect job ever but it's only painfully obvious in macro... like everything haha! Then I added a little red rhinestone in the middle of the bow on the candy cane.

And yes... of course I got bubbling when I actually decided to use topcoat. Boo! :(

That's it! I just Skype opened presents with my family and I'm bagged from work so I'm going to try to take it easy today. I hope you had/are having a lovely day!

 Thanks for reading!

  5. Hi Kirsten, great mani!

    Sooo, what was this year's Charla? I'm guessing OPI Rainbow Connection/NOPI Rainbow in the S-Kylie/Milani Gems/WnW Party of Five Glitters/and the Ulta one...I forget :)

    I'm not sure if that's what you were referring to!

    Happy New Year :)
