So this is Christmas…

So this is Christmas…

Christmas cheer to all far and near. Was looking back at my posts. Didn’t realize it had been so long since I had posted. I guess u really have been in a better mood.  

I saw this idea (let’s just assume that unless I say different,  I saw it on Pinterest,  haha) and I like the simplicity and the sparkle.

Here is the pinspiration. 

And here is mine.


Merry Christmas 🌲🎄

Christmas is a-Coming

Christmas is a-Coming

Christmas time is here!

I saw a color scheme on Pinterest that wasn’t the typical reds or blue-winter themes. And I had a green glitter 😆. I used one of my Jamberrys on top of a gold metallic to finish it out. The original idea includes a Christmas tree, but I kind of like it this simple. 

I’m feeling more in the posting mood lately. I haven’t felt much like it since last August. Maybe it’s the change in social status (no longer single!). 

Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.  🌲 🕎  Till next time.

Day 17 – Glitter Nails

Day 17 – Glitter Nails

Day 17 is glitter nails. I love to add glitter, so it was hard to pick one design. I found one that had purple, which is my favorite color.

Ring finger has a coat of “Pumping Iron”, by Sally Hansen, then a couple layers of “Trchno”, by China Glaze (Christmas present from sister).
Other nails have a coverage of “Tempest”, by Sinful Colors with the Trchno on the cuticles.

Day 16 – Tribal Pattern

Day 16 – Tribal Pattern

It was a little difficult to choose a pattern, mostly because they ranged so much in difficulty. It took me a while to find the pattern I used, but it was relatively easy to execute.

First I did a couple coats of “Earthy Angel”, by Color Club, mostly because this particular polish requires a couple coats for full coverage. Then, I painted the steps in “Indigo Night”, by Revlon Color Stay. I started with the outline of steps, leaving a triangle near the cuticle. This, once the steps had dried a bit, I filed in with “Burnt Orange”, by NYC (New York Color).

Day 15 – Delicate

Day 15 – Delicate

I didn’t like my first go, but I feel that the intent of this challenge is to do the design yourself so I let it live for a day. Then I got rid of it and used one of the Jamberrys my aunt got me for Christmas.

My first go was a couple coats of “From Sheer to Eternity”, by Sinful Colors with a thin line of “Ardoise”, also a Sinful Colors.

After a day or so I got rid of it, I really didn’t like the colors together. They didn’t turn out well. So I tried the Jamberry set my aunt had gotten me for Christmas. It came with three patterns and I used one, alternating among the nails. First I did a good coat on all the nails of “Gold Medal”, by Sinful Colors.

As we all know, during the holidays it gets really hectic. So I’m a little behind in my posts.

It’s a little hard to see, but the accent nail has red dots (ornaments) on it.

Ruby Ruby, by Sinful Colors

Accent nail had a base of Envy (Sinful Colors), topped by Rain Forest (Revlon Colorstay). Then dots of the red. I got several compliments on these. Except, like I said, it was hard to see the dots.

I had these during the week of Christmas. They got messed up on Christmas night while I was washing dishes from my amazingly delicious and successful Christmas dinner, that I made myself.

Thumb: A couple coats to get complete coverage of Energy Source, by L.A. Colors

Pointer: A couple coats of Sugar Coat (Wet n Wild), then a layer of Dazzle Me (Pure Ice) at the cuticle.

Middle & Pinkie: Sugar Coat, by Wet n Wild

Ring: A base of Sugar Coat, then a chevron of Pedal to the Medal (Maybelline Color Show), covered with a layer of Dazzle Me. Then a thinner chevron of Energy Source.

My Christmas Dinner: Pork Tenderloin in a Balsamic Glaze. Thank you Pinterest!
