The Rest of the Christmas Nails

The tree has been taken down and all our Christmas decor has been put away until next year.  We're ready to ring in 2013!!  Before we do, let's look back at this year's Christmas nails!!

 This set was done using a combination of glitter from Sparkles Nail Products.  Love the way they turned out!

 Polka dots and candy canes with 3D bows!!  Love it!

 That's a 3D Rudolph on the ring fingers.  The red glitter is from Young Nails.

 Gelish in Holiday Party Blues with painted snowflakes.

 Red and silver glitter fade with Santa hats and candy canes.  The fimo canes were from Beauty Tech Shoppe online.

 Silver and gold swirls with fimo peppermints.

 More candy canes and polka dots.  Super cute!!

 Blue and silver glitter fade with blue seashells.  The ring fingers have hand painted gingerbread men.

 Red and green swirls with a few pieces of chunky glitter from Sparkles Nails Products.

 Custom mixed red glitter with fimo Christmas lights.  Adorable!

 The green glitter was from Magnetic Nail Design and the snowflakes were hand painted with paint.  3D snowmen on the ring fingers made this set awesome!

 A silver and gold fade with fimo peppermint swirls.

 Total Christmas!!  Hand painted penguins, 3D snowmen, and 3D gingerbread men.  Too cute!!

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

With Christmas right around the corner, it's time to rock a little red and green!  Here are a few designs I've done in the last couple weeks.

 Red and silver with a few plastic dots for added fun.

We're feeling a little Grinchy!!!  Green acrylic with 3D acrylic Grinchs.

My client wanted something new so we did a full fade with red and added a silver smile line.  Very clean

This client LOVES Rudolph!!  We did a red and silver fade with 3D acrylic Rudolphs.

 Very simple red, white, and green.  Love it!

My client felt inspired by a blanket she had at home.  We created the polka dots using MAC Pigment mixed with acrylic.  The red is also a custom mixed MAC Pigment color and the snowflakes are hand painted.

 This was a custom mixed glitter.  I kept throwing in random chunky glitters from Sparkles Nail Products until we had a perfect color!!

 Red and green acrylic with fimo peppermints.  These colors sure pop up close!!

When you have numerous fimo pieces and can't decide what you want, you just add all of them!!  This was a custom mixed red acrylic with fimo gingerbread, snowmen, and snowflakes.

Candy canes!!  Love the contrast between the red and the white!

 My client wanted something for winter and not just Christmas.  We did a blue to silver glitter fade then drew on snowflakes.

This client brought in a picture she found online so we recreated it using acrylic!  The tree and dots are painted and the ornaments are rhinestones.
