Christmas Movie Nails

When I decided to do this 12 days of Christmas nail art thing, I knew right away that I wanted to do one design based on a Christmas movie. The thing is, there are SOOOO many Christmas movies out there! You've got your Christmas Classics like It's a Wonderful Life, White Christmas, and A Christmas Story. There are those awesome old Christmas claymations like A Year Without Santa Clause, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and Santa Clause is Coming to Town. But then you've got those newer movies that become instant classics.

It didn't take me long to chose a movie. Can you tell what it is? I'll give you a hint...
"Bye, Buddy! Hope you find your dad!"

Christmas Sweater Nails

I have this terrible habit of waiting until late to start doing my nails. And since I can never decide what I want to do with them, it takes me quite some time to get done. There's no reason for me posting these so late other than just that. I didn't sit down to do them until after 10 and you know the rest.

For today's Christmas design, I chose some Fair Isle style images from my favorite holiday Born Pretty stamping plate.

Christmas Drip Marble

We're just days away from Christmas which means that I'm just days away from seeing my family. Almost as excitingly I get to see their faces when they open their gifts. Usually, I have to send my gift to them and I miss them being opened. Last year, I made them video tape it and send it to us. Seeing it in person will be so much better. I love giving gifts and I love seeing people's reactions. It's my favorite thing about Christmas and birthdays. \

Anyway, on to today's Christmas nail art. I wanted to do some marbling so I thought I would try out a drip marble.

Christmas Glitter Gradient

This design is going up extremely late but I had a busy day of errands and visiting with my mother-in-law. I didn't get home until midnight and, because I am the world's most indecisive person, I didn't get done with my nails until 1:30am. Not because it was a difficult or time-consuming. It definitely wasn't. I just went through three other design ideas before I settled on this one.

Fuzzy Christmas French Manicure

As of yesterday, I am officially on vacation from work for the rest of the year. I'm excited to take it easy for a couple of weeks. In a week, my family is coming to visit from Tennessee and I couldn't be more excited. I don't get to see them often so I can't wait to spend Christmas with them.

For today's Christmas design, I was going to do the typical Santa manicure but wanted to do something simpler.

Christmas Smoosh

For my third Christmas nail art design I wanted to do something a little more abstract. I chose to create a Christmas colored smoosh design. They're quick, easy, and they look really cool.

Candy Canes & Holly

Day 2 of my 12 days of Christmas nail art is here. I asked hubby what Christmas design I should do today and he replied with candy canes and holly. Easy enough!

Christmas Dotticure

I've decided that this year that I would do 12 days of Christmas nail art designs. I know everyone does Christmas designs throughout December but a month of it is too much for me. 12 days seems like plenty, right?

Born Pretty Review

Another Born Pretty review for you guys! This is my favorite type of nail art product from their site; their stamping plates. I have yet to be disappointed with one and this one is no exception.
*I received this product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.

Chevron Stripes

Sometimes, you just come across a color combination that you love. For today's design, I wanted a nice fall to winter transition color scheme and I think I nailed it. I always gravitate towards reds and oranges when I think of fall. I forced myself to stick with cooler colors and I love the end result!

Flakies, Gradients, & Holo

Have you ever started doing your nails and you can't stop just adding more and more until you realize that you may have gone overboard? Yeah, I tend to do that. A lot. You know what, though? Sometimes more is more. Right?

Musical Pond Mani

I was playing around with my OPI ColorPaints and decided to do a pond manicure. I wanted to experiment a little, though, and see how well it would work with stamped images. It turns out that it works quite well.
