Holiday Nail Art

Hello everyone! I took last week off because I had my company's holiday party which I am in charge of planning and running. It's always a busy and stressful time and I decided to give myself a break from the blog so I could concentrate on that. I also had a nasty nail break early last week which has led to my new rounded nail shape. Winter is always so hard on my nails. It seems like no matter how much I moisturize my cuticles and hands my nails still break. I decided a more rounded shape would be easier on my nails. I don't know how long it will last though since I love my squares! Today's nail art is a nod to the classic holiday colors of Green, Red and Gold. Even though I don't celebrate Christmas I do enjoy festive nail art. 

Tools used:

Clear Stamper

Bundle Monster Plate BM S219

Ellagee Lickety Split Liquid Latex

Polishes used:

ILNP Ski Lodge

Zoya Blaze and Levi

Hit the Bottle Spun Gold

CbL PDQ Top Coat


I started with two coats of each polish with a coat of PDQ to speed up drying. I then applied Lickety Split around my nails and cuticles and stamped my images with Spun Gold. I finished with another coat of PDQ.

I'm not generally into the traditional holiday colors- I like the more modern colors combos, but I really love how festive this nail art turned out. And the textured gold accent nail really makes everything pop.
