The One With the Poinsettia Nail Art Re-Creation

9:00:00 AM


Good morning polished world!!  How are you all doing on this cold day?  We are getting some snow, not as much as I would like, but some.  You might think I'm crazy for wanting snow, but December is the only month where I truly like snow.  After December 25th it becomes annoying and a bother.  There's just something about a white Christmas.

I'm back today with another Christmas manicure!  So far so good on keeping that promise to myself of posting only Christmas designs this month.  Actually painted another last night so that means I'll have another post in the next few days.  Anyways, today's design is a re-creation of one of my favorites from last year....my poinsettia design!!!

Switched up the accent nail a little bit due to sheer laziness, and made the leaves a tad smaller, and overall loving it.  Let's take a look!


Colors Used:
  • ORLY - Sunset Blvd
  • ORLY - Invite Only
  • Serendipity Polish - Glitzy Gold Champagne
  • Salon Perfect - Glam Glitter
Isn't it lovely??  Kind of love it more than last year's design.  The one thing that bothered me last year was that the leaves were large and I felt like it took over design and took away from the poinsettia.  This year, the red flower really stands out and the leaves are in the background just like they are on the real plant.

Sunset Blvd and Invite Only are from last years ORLY Holiday collection.  These two polishes are the BEST Christmas polishes.  The green applies in two coats.  Last year I had a problem with bubbling and had to add a top coat of Northern Lights, but this year no bubbles.  Must have been I applied it too thick or didn't let the coats dry long enough.  Who knows.  Sunset Blvd also applied in two coats.  Just a gorgeous, bright, Christmas red.

And one of my favorites this time of year - Glam Glitter.  I won this polish a few years ago and am shocked that the red didn't bleed and that the polish itself didn't dry up.  Small gold hexes, mixed with green and red pieces.  The best Christmas glitter.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Love the polishes used?

Until next time, <3.
