Reindeers and Sleigh

Pin It

Hi!

Crumpet's Nail Tarts had Reindeers and Sleigh for their Christmas Challenge. I really loved how this one turned out. 


I have heard of good reindeers, but mine have gone rogue. I realised that I wanted them to be Rudolph, the true goody-two shoe reindeer. So, I made a slight change. 


I loved this manicure. Did you? Don't forget to leave a comment. I would love to hear from you. And do check out the other Christmas challenge manicures :)

Polishes used:
Color Club Sugarplum Fairy (as base)

For stamping:
Konad black 
Plates: Bundle Monster 213 (sleigh), Konad M12 (reindeer)

Christmas wreaths

Pin It
Hi lovelies,

I feel like wailing as all my efforts for the Christmas challenge has gone down the drain. But I will still showcase it here just to show that I technically met the challenge. This one is for Pink & Polished and Overpolished's challenge 'Wreaths'. 


The base is the super gorgeous Color Club Sugarplum Fairy. My accent nail is China Glaze Winter Holly for the green wreath, which is decorated with acrylic bows and dots. 


This challenge has made me realise how easy and fun it is to work with acrylic colours. Liked it? Do leave a comment below. I would love to hear from you :)

Christmas ornaments

Pin It
Hi!

I am uploading my particpatory pictures for the Christmas challenges. I know it is too late. But since it was not my fault (I did my manicures but the internet was on the fritz), I am still putting these pictures up.
This is for Pink & Polished and Overpolished's Christmas challenge 'Ornaments'.


This is how my house looked! All metallic and colourful and glittery! I even had some old Christmas tree ornaments that had lost its shine. I revived by painting them with dazzling, glittering polishes like NYX Carnival and NYX Spotlight. 


This is China Glaze Pizzazz from its 2012 Christmas Holiday collection. It's a mix of green, orange, yellow, fuschsia, pink, purple and red glitters of medium size. I layered it over Zoya Harlow, a plum metallic matte colour.


So did you like my interpretation of Christmas ornaments? Don't forget to leave a comment below. And do check out my other Christmas challenge posts.
