Candy Canes and Gingerbread Man

Pin It

Hello fellow lacqueraders,

It is red, white and Christmassy. Yup, candy canes it is. 



Day 3 challenge hosted by Pink and Polished and Overpolished is Candy Canes. This combined beautifully with the Crumpet Nail Arts' Day 2 challenge of Candy Canes and Gingerbread Man as well as Plump and Polished's Candy Cane challenge.



The candy cane on my pinkie has melted ;) thanks to a highly uncooperative XL stamper. I somehow seem to manage better with the Konad stampers. Strange. Has that happened to you?



Candy canes seem to be an integral part of Christmas. But they are not easily available in India, if it is available anywhere at all. Every time I see pictures of them, I wonder how they taste. I imagine them to be cinnamony or pepperminty. (Is there such a word?). How do they taste?



Even gingerbread can't be found in bakeries here. Though to be frank, there aren't very many bakeries in my city. But with the Indian market opening up to foreign goods, I hope to see them soon sometime :)
So, did you like what I did? Don't forget to leave a comment :)

Polishes used:
OPI Alpine Snow (white creme base)

For stamping:
Colorbar Exclusive 48 (red swirls)
Bourjois Paris 1 seconde Rouge Obscure (gingerbread man)
Revlon Forest Green (holly leaves)
Plates: Bundlemonster 222 (gingerbread man), Red Angel 110 (Candy swirls)

  6. Someone needs to send you some candy canes, stat! Yes, they're vaguely minty, but not quite pepperminty. If you have Starlight mints available, they're similar. I love the nails by the way- the gingerbread man is too cute!

  12. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an
    established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?

    I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm
    thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks
