A Christmassy Manicure!


I was inspired by this post here on Beautopia's blog to do a Christmas tree inspired manicure.

I did this manicure last night and I used China Glaze's Watermelon Rind as I didn't have Emerald Sparkle but then guess what arrived in the post this morning?? My swap package from Beauty Judy containing Emerald Sparkle!! More about that package in a later post. I so wish I'd waited because Emerald Sparkle is so much more a Christmassy green!

Anyway I used CG's Watermelon Rind with a layer of Sinful Color's All About You over the top and then, because I didn't feel it was quite sparkly enough, I added a layer of CG's Fairy Dust as well.

Here's the result -

I couldn't really get a good shot of how sparkly and festive it actually looks! Silly dark and gloomy weather!! You will have to trust me when I say that in person the gold comes through a lot more and it looks very Christmassy! Maz made more ooohhs and ahhhs over it than he has anything in a while....*cough, cough* ahem, when it comes to nail polish that is.

Also since I last posted I've become an Aunty again! My brother and his wife had a baby boy who they've called Benjamin. He is absolutely gorgeous and I have already spent far too much time looking at baby clothes/things! I can't wait to meet him but in the meantime my brother is keeping me up to date with lots of pictures.

Here he is -

Isn't he absolutely gorgeous!

I will be posting again later to show you my fantastic swap package from Beauty Judy!

It's nearly Christmas!!! Wahoo!

So pretty! I love Watermelon Rind.
Glad you got Emerald Sparkle, it is a stunner!

Benjamin is a cutie, congrats to you and your family. It's awesome being an auntie, isn't it?

How adorable is that baby Benjamin. I love his little finger sticking up. How sweet. God bless him always. Your manicure is lovely but completely overshadowed by that sweetie!
