Crumpets Nail Tarts Winter Holiday Challenge: Day 5

I took a break on Day 4, basically because of all the stuff going on in Connecticut. So sad. My heart goes out to all the family and friends and townspeople affected by that tragedy.

Today's challenge is Christmas decorations. I have already done a lot of other stuff so I wanted to do something I haven't done yet. I chose holly and berries. I only did that for an accent and did French tips for the rest. 

The colors I used are: 
Revlon Jaded for the base
China Glaze Glittering Garland, Kleancolor Metallic Red, and Revlon Gold Coin for the tips
China Glaze Glittering Garland and Kleancolor Metallic Red for the holly and berries

Thanks for looking and please visit the other bloggers also participating.

Crumpet's Nail Tarts Presents Winter Holiday Challenge: Day 3

Ok today is festival of lights. I didn't have much time to do this as I had my company Christmas party today at work. I did my nails for that which I'll share later. For this challenge day, I did a Robin Moses inspired Christmas lights French tip. 

Sorry about the gross cuticle on my thumb. I forgot to put lotion on before the photo was taken.
Also I realized after the fact that Festival of Lights probably had more to do with Hanukkah than it did with actual Christmas lights so I'm sorry if this doesn't go well with some readers. 

This is before I mucked it up with the lights. 
 I'm loving making the candy cane stripes. I've tried to put them on all my holiday nail art. 

Which brings me to my work party nails.
See what I mean. Candy cane striping makes everything better :)

Crumpet's Nail Tarts Holiday Challenge: Day 2

Today is day 2 and it is Gingerbread Man and Candy Canes. I used stamps for these.

The gingerbread men are from Bundle Monster BM-222. It is a full image with a gingerbread man and some holly but I only used the gingerbread man. I stamped him a couple times on each nail.  The polish I used to stamp them is China Glaze Mahogany Magic. Then I just dabbed some red glitter in the open spaces, green polish for the buttons, and black polish for the eyes. The red nails are Sinful  Colors Ruby Ruby. I stamped them with an image from DRK-A and I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

Crumpet's Nail Tarts Holiday Challenge: Day 1

Today is the first day of Crumpet's Nail Tarts Winter Holiday Challenge. It is snowflakes and snowfall. Well I didn't know which or what to do so I did both!

This is my snowflakes:
I cut my nails really short recently but I still wanted to wear a funky French. So I used Color Club Nomadic Nude (practically the only nude color I have) and Sally Hansen Insta-dri Brisk Blue for the tips. Then I went over the tips with a sparkly holographic top coat, which I think was just a Love & Beauty no name. Then I stamped a snowflake from my large Jumbo Cheeky stamping plate. I did put a couple of microbeads in the middle of one snowflake just to see how it would look but I didn't like it so there are none on the other nails.

I did snowfall nails too but they ended up looking more like snow drift nails.

I used a dark blue navy again by Love and Beauty. Then I did the saran wrap technique with Sinful Colors Snow Me White. Then used a holographic glitter top coat on top.

Crumpet's Nail Tarts Sat-ART-day

Yesterday was the first December Sat-ART-day in Crumpet's Nail Tarts. That is a nail art facebook group and we get together each Saturday to do some nail art. This is the first time that I am following along with Sat-ART-day but it has been going on for a while now.

The theme for this one is Winter Scarves or Outfits. I don't really own any scarves so I improvised on mine. This is my holiday scarf or maybe an ugly Christmas sweater?

I put down a green base which was Claw Polish Toxic. It is a coffin shaped polish from Halloween. Then I used Sally Hansen Insta-dri Rapid Red to make red stripes. Then I used a stamping plate and I am sorry I don't have the plate number I used. I used Konad Special White but when I put top coat on it, the green bled into the white so it looks a little minty green instead of white.

Thanks for looking and stay tuned because on Dec. 5th I'm starting the Winter Holiday Challenge!
