My Nails for Christmas

So yesterday i was just playing around with my polishes and colored acrylics.I didnt have a design planed,i just went with the flow.at the beginning i wasnt loving what i had started but at the end i really liked it alot that i have decided that these will be my Nails for Christmas :)

























..............................
what i did was..got a Q-tip and dipped it in what polish ,then patted it around my nail but not oer the entire surface,then i did the same with some blue polish but didnt color up the white entirely,and then i did the same again with a glitter polish but didnt cover up the blue entirely either.

For the snowman and tree I got a fake nail,stuck it to a nail stand,cover it in plastic (i cut up a zip lock bag) and then tied it off with an elastic band so the plastic would be tight around the nail..then created my designs over the plastic and when they dried they come off very easily..i did it over a fake nail so i would get a curve very close to the curve on my own natural nails so it would fit better when i glued them on.

for the stars i just used my white striping polish,then applied a 1mm blue rhinestone to each,then finish with your top coat and your all done!!

the photos i took really dont do this design much justice ..they look sooooo much better in real life!!

Christmas nail polish and goodies Haul

So i got me some goodies as a present to myself for christmas...lol.Some of what i got were needed as i was running out of my current ones but there are others that i have never tried before so super excited!!

Lets start off with the polishes
......
I got 3 from Finger Paints and 3 from China Glaze















Here are the names of each polish starting from the left

FINGER PAINTS

Vintage Violet
Sparkle Top Coat
Meet Me At The Met

CHINA GLAZE

Sugar Plums
Secret Peri-Wink-Le
Little Drummer Boy

---------------------------------------
---------------------------------------

Next I have top and base coat from Beauty Secrets...I personally love these.work fantastic for me.I also had to grab the China Glaze Peppermint Cuticle oil..and it does smell exactly like peppermint!!From Beauty Secrets I had been curious about their Ridge Filler so i grabbed a small bottle of that.Hve never tried it before so we shall see what happens.I also grabbed some IBD Dehydrator and I HAD to get another LCD Nail Protein Intensive Fortifier by Salon Science.This is my 3rd bottle and i just love it!!..it really does work amazing for my nails!..I recommend this one to everyone who is trying to grow out their nails!!


















...................................
......................................

So if you know me somewhat you will know that Orly is my favorite brand when it come to Nail polish so when i saw this i had to pick it up!...Never tried it before so im super ecited.

it comes with a pink nude,white,bonder and top coat polishes as well as a french Manicure look book with half moon white tip guides




















................................
...............................

I picked up these 2 little ceramic jars to put my acrylic liquid and brush cleaner in...





















........................................
........................................

And lastly..this was unexpected..I found out that because I bought 3 polishes from Finger Paints i get a free wallet!!...so i ended up getting just a plain purple.I prob wont use it just because of the size but seen as my daughter LOVES purple she might like it!

























...........................................
=================
...........................................

Unfortunately for me...i cant to get to play with any of what i got till Christmas morning ....these will either be gifts from Santa or my husbands to me...because as of right now I have nothing to open Christmas morning which sucks so I dont want to feel left out...lol.



MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
