Hello readers! :)
Wow, it's Christmas Eve already! Where has this year gone!? I'm really looking forward to tonight. On Christmas Eve my Aunt, who literally lives 5 minutes walking distance from me, has her annual Christmas Eve party. I'm excited to see my friends and family and eat delicious food. :) Then when I get home, it's off to bed.
And of course I had to have nails for the occasion. This will also be my Christmas manicure as well. I decided on a french manicure, which is something I wear rarely. I chose a french because of how simple and clean they look and it's easy to add some flair to them. So under the white tips I added a gold line and then stamped a holly design on my ring and thumb fingers and then dotted the holly berries using a glass flecked red using a dotting tool.
I have to say, I'm rather proud of this mani; I free-handed the french tips and the gold stripes underneath. I rarely ever free-hand anything and so therefore I don't have much practice, but this came out well seeing as how I don't have much experience with free-handing. I just wish I had made the gold lines under the white french tips thinner.
I really, really like this mani. It's simple, yet festive. Oh, and that bottle of polish that I'm holding, that's Zoya Sarah. It's a stunning red and I can't wait to wear it as a full manicure.
