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 🌲🎄

So this week I’ve got a couple photos for this post as I’ve gotten a little behind. So let’s recap:

 

My sister sent me an idea via Facebook and it was so cute I just had to try it. The execution was really simple, I just used my dot making tools. I made the bigger dots in the darker red first and then filled in the empty spaces with the brighter red. I got a lot of compliments on it and it definitely met my “Makes Me Smile” rule.

I also redid the toes for season.

And finally, my current set. I liked the seasonal look of plaid with red, I just didn’t feel like I could do the plaid myself.

Day 14 – Flowers

Day 14 – Flowers

So I got back to my 30 “Day” Challenge and I am trying to incorporate the holiday season as I do. So Day 14, which is flowers I used poinsettias as my influence.

The top shows my Pinspiration and you can see how I altered it to look like poinsettias. Or tried to, haha.

Do Day 12 was stripes. I really liked the Pinspiration I found as it was autumn themed as well as went with The Challenge.
I did a base coat of “Gold Medal”, by Sinful Colors to give my gold glitter a background. Otherwise the glitters tend to not show up very well. Then “Dizzy”, by L.A. Colors, which is my medium glitter. I have a fine, medium and coarse glitter variants. I gave it a little while to dry then put on my artist tape and did two coats of “Red-ail Gypsy “, by Color Club.
It was a little rough up close, but from the end of my arm it looked greart!

This one was fun. Though gradients tend to be a tad messy.
I saw this idea on Pinterest and I really took a shine to it. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.
I used the glue technique to keep my fingers from getting all messy. It worked really well. Plus I get the added fun of pulling glue off my fingers. Always liked doing that as kid.

So day one of my 30 Day Challenge was “Red Nails”. I really liked the one I found on Pinterest, which you see here.

For mine I did two coats of Sally Hansen, Diamond Strength – “Something Borrowed”. Then I did a stroke of Sinful Colors, “Ruby Ruby”. Once that dried I did an alternating stroke of Color Club, “Red-ail Gypsy.”
