Hello! It's finally what I like to call 'Christmas week', yay! Unfortunately I am still at work this week but come Friday I'll be free! Today I have a Christmas tree mani to share with you, inspired by a similar one created by Bethany from BNailedToPerfection (see Bethany's mani here). I used the same stamping images as Bethany, but different polishes. Read on to find out more!
I started with a base of OPI 'I'm Sooo Swamped', a grass green creme. It has a lovely smooth formula, and is easily opaque in two coats. This is the only polish I picked up from OPI's Spring 2016 New Orleans collection - and honestly it was mainly because it reminds me of Shrek! Below is two coats and topcoat.
To add my Christmas trees, I used two different images from Uberchic Beauty stamping plate Christmas-02 (purchased from Nail Artisan). I stamped the big tree image to my ring finger, and the multipe tree pattern to the rest of my nails. I used my Born Pretty Store clear stamper and scraper and their bright gold stamping polish, before finishing with topcoat.
What do you think? I love how these came out! This is definitely one of my favourite Christmas mani's so far this year. I'm glad I chose a bright yellow gold to stamp as it really seems to pop off of the green base. Less than a week until the big day - eeeek!
Hope to see you in the next post!
