The One With the Poinsettia Nail Art


Merry Christmas polished world!  Cannot believe that it is actually Christmas Day!  I'm kind of upset with myself that I didn't get more Christmas designs up on the blog.  I think it's because I had a late start this year. Oh well, there's always next year!

Today I am bringing you an all new Christmas design that I have never done before!  For years I have seen other bloggers paint poinsettia's on their nails.  After seeing janet_m1's manicure on Instagram, I finally had the confidence to try the look on my own nails!

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • ORLY - Sunset Blvd
  • ORLY - Invite Only
  • Serendipity Polish - Glitzy Gold Champagne
  • Salon Perfect - Glam Glitter

I think this is my all time favorite Christmas manicure!  All the polishes work wonderfully together.  Serendipity Polish Glitzy Gold Champagne is a gorgeous light gold metallic polish with gold sparkles in it.  Two coats and perfect coverage.  Was not shocked because it is a Serendipity Polish.  Dried super fast so I was able to add the art and the glitter gradient.

I did the glitter gradient using Salon Perfect Glam Glitter.  This is the perfect Christmas glitter wiht gold and green microglitter and large red hexed glitter.  I thought I was going to have a trouble doing the gradient because of the density of the red glitter, but it actually worked really well.


Now to talk about the gorgeous ORLY polishes.  I purchased the whole ORLY Sunset Strip Holiday 2016 collection because I've been really missing my ORLY limited edition collections.  I won't have that problem next year though since I signed up for the ORLY Color Pass.

Anyways, Sunset Blvd is a gorgeous red shimmer polish which had complete coverage in two coats.  I used three because I wanted the red shimmer to really stand out.  Invite Only is a gorgeous green crelly which is perfect for Christmas.  I applied the second coat before the first was completely dried, so there was a little bit of bubbling, so I added a top coat of INM Northern Lights, which honestly was a great decision.  Look how gorgeous the holo sparkle is on top of that green!

What do you think?  Like the poinsettia?  Like the combination?

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate!!!!

Until next time, <3.
