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 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.
It’s been forever, I know. I haven’t felt much like posting lately, much less doing my nails. I’ve just been slapping on a color and that’s about it.
But new friends, new fun.
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.
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).
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.

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.
