Merry Christmas!

Hi, everyone - Merry Christmas!!! Just a quick post today to share my Christmas mani with you.


The base color I used is Wet n Wild Megalast Break the Ice - such a pretty and shimmery white, and the glitter is China Glaze Party Hearty. I was lucky to find this at a reasonable price on ebay about a month or so ago - it's just the perfect Christmas glitter!

This mani was inspired by the pretty glitter gradients done by both Glitter & Nails and The Nail Network. I was a little heavy handed with the glitter, though - hopefully with practice I will learn to lighten up in order to achieve a more delicate look.  :)

The super adorable owl is from a set of waterslide transfers that I also found on ebay. These are so fun and really easy to apply!

I hope that everyone has a warm and wonderful holiday, filled with sparkle and good cheer! Thanks for reading!

    1. It was something Google+ did to my photo automatically! :)

      It's an "auto awesome" effect:
