SMYTC challenge Day 1: Red and Green

SMYTC challenge Day 1: Red and Green

I've joined another challenge - one from a cool group I'm in on Facebook. It's called "Show me your top coats", and this is a Christmas challenge that runs every second day from now and until Christmas. 

It looks like this: 


So today it's time for red and green nails, which means I'll be using one of my snow man polishes, hurray! 

I started out with two polishes from Sinful Colors: the green "San Fransisco" and the red "Gogo Girl". None of them are going to end up as favourites, but they'll do for today. 

I haven't applied top coat yet: 



No Christmas without glitter! I used a Snowman polish with no name. It's a clear base with green and red glitter, which is perfect for this mani. 

I used a tiny piece of sponge to get the glitter onto the nails. I applied a line diagonally on each nail, and topped it all off with a layer of Poshé top coat: 




And here's a pic from a different angle: 



This is very Christmassy, and I like it! On the pics I like the green base colour best, but in real life it was the red base colour that was my favourite. Funny that, eh?

Here's the bottle shot for ya: 



That snowman is super cute!! ♥


I'm doing this challenge with a bunch of other girls. You should totally check out what they came up with on this first day.

  7. Where did you find the red and green glitter snowman? The ones they had at our Sally's (red glitter and a pearl) didn't have a painted nose. :-( Love that little guy and the mani screams Merry Christmas. Reminds me a beautifully wrapped gift.
