Xmas NOTD - Christmas Trees!

Ello ello loves and happy hump day! Things always seem a wee bit better once you've passed the midweek mark non? Work has been manic of late so very much looking forward to a weekend of festive fun with a visit to a Xmas market & catching up with friends before the holiday.

Today’s festive mani comes in the form of some Christmas Trees :) I did a Christmas tree manicure last year as well, using the cello tape technique to create the design however this time I decided to just freehand them :)


For my base I applied a neutral background with one coat of Barry M Vanilla from the matte collection. Then to create my trees I grabbed a fine nail art brush & a variety of different green polishes from my ever growing collection to get started on my trees ;)


The first green is this yummy green crème Wild Cactus from Color Club. Starting from the top of the nail I just drew an upside down V shape before creating strokes outwards for the pine branches down to the tips of the nail.


Next I used another lovely green from Color Club, sadly my bottle is nameless! *sad face* This one has a pretty glass fleck like finish & added a nice bit of definition to my trees.


Finally I felt another green was required so I used Ego Green by Fashionista which is actually a magnetic polish but I loved the shade so much & twas the perfect green to add a last bit of detail.


Every Christmas tree needs its decorations so I decided to go all out with the round rhinestones, not forgetting a wee star on the top to finish! Seal it all with a coat or two of topcoat & done!


Hope you liked! Thanks as always for reading lovelies!

Lotsa love to ya!
