Christmas Inspired Tips

I had a bad day last Thursday, so to cheer myself up, I cam home and did something a little festive!
I don't have the steadiest hand, so I was pretty proud of my work here! Although, you can see on some of my fingers where I didn't wait for the Emerald Sparkle to dry enough before I swiped on my top coat...oops.

Then Friday, I promptly came down with a nasty cold, so I didn't get to wear this any further than my front yard.


The glitter is "Golden Enchantment" and the Art pen I picked up at the Dollar Tree.




There is the ES drag I was talking about...ooo and a little staining on my nails...eep!


Anywhoo...

I liked it so much, I tried again. This time going for a "snowy" effect.
I used, OPI "Dazzled by Gold" Zoya "Snowsicle", Golden Enchantment, City Lights and a silver Art Pen.
Behold:
I liked this one, but I didn't notice how sheer DbG was until I was outside.



Definitely had the chilly/frosty/sparkly snow effect I was looking for!
