The Rest of the Year Challenge 7: Christmas


The Rest of the Year Challenge 7: Christmas

Christmas is green and red in my world. Green for the tree and red for the pretty ornaments on it. Obviously my Christmas mani had to be red and green as well.

I started out with L. A. Splash’ “Money Honey”, which isn’t as Christmassy green as other green polishes. But I wanted a green without golden undertones, and this green hasn’t got any gold in it at all.

The formula is quite thick on these L. A. Splash polishes, and the brush is a bit wide. It’s not a problem though, because I like both :)  It took two easy coats to build up to desired opacity. And I added a layer of Seche Vite top coat before moving on to the next step. Here’s how it looks so far:


And from a different angle:


This polish is really blingy! It just needs a bit of red glitter to bling it up even more. I chose L. A. Girl’s “Animate”, which is a clear base packed with various sizes of red glitter.

I made stripes on two of the nails, and dots on three. And when I was done I gave it another layer of Seche Vite top coat, and my mani was done!


Here’s a pic from another angle:



This is pretty much as glittery as it can be!
If you like the green glitter, I can tell you that it’s a total b*tch to get off again! :D


Check out these other Danish girls’ blogs to see what they came up with for a Christmas mani.


Merry Christmas, everybody!

    1. Some glitters are like that though, but fortunately not all of them. I usually don't mind, because I think it's worth the extra effort :)
