Have you had a good week? The time has finally come for holiday season to really start for our family. Husband goes on leave after today and we will be spending time with our favourite little person for the next week. Don’t worry though, I have posts coming up all the time. You won’t even have a chance to miss me 😀
Today’s Christmas nails actually looked very different in my head. I am still not sure if it came out better or not ;). Let me show you.
- I started with 2 coats of China Glaze – Glistening Snow on my pinky and ring finger and 2 coats of Sinful Colours – Ruby Ruby on my middle, index and thumb.
- I top coated and once that was completely dry I stamped with plate QA19 from BornPrettyStore.
- I stamped the candy canes using Essence stampy polish in white and Tip Top – Armour plate.
- I stamped the holly leaves in Sinful Colors – San Francisco.
- I then made the little red dots with my small dotting tool and Sinful Colors – Ruby Ruby
- I topcoated and good to go.
Like I said, This was a little different in my head but I quite liked it. It was festive but subtle. What do you think?
Don’t you just love that sparkle of Glistening Snow? Look at the bottle. It’s just gorgeous. I wish it was a little more obvious on the nail but it’s still really pretty.
I hope your Christmas shopping is done and you just have relaxing on the cards. We also have a beautiful sunny day today and I hope it sticks around for a few days. The rain is getting old fast. What are your plans for the weekend?
Thanks for reading!
I absolutely ADORE the holly! Pffft. Every time I see glistening snow swatches I want it, but I never actually buy it, despite having had it in my hand!

Thanks! I am so torn about glistening snow. It can look so gorgeous but it doesn’t translate well on photo’s and if you’re not in the right light it also doesn’t ‘shine’ But it is so pretty!
Cute! Have an amazing time with Hubby 🙂
Thanks so much Imka! xx
I really like glistening snow! And the holly is so cute 🙂

Yay for leave! Thanks so much and enjoy the stamping!
Cute! I especially like the holly leaves on Glistening Snow, probably because that glitter is just sucking me right in! I’ve heard all good things about that polish…why don’t I own it, haha?
Hahahaha Thanks Lesley. I am quite torn about Glistening Snow.
Thank you so much 🙂
Your nails always come out so nice. I bought the same plate for Christmas, but ended up not using it lol.

Thank you so much Odette. That is so sweet of you. Hahaha luckily you can use it next year! 😉
I was seriously wondering what Glistening Snow looked like when it is layered! Love it! Love the whole mani though. Pretty, sparkly and festive!
