The One With the Rudolph Nail Art

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  Happy Saturday to all of you!!  Are you all ready for Christmas?  I'm not!  Today starts my weekend of baking.  This year I'm going to attempt to make my great-grandmother's jam cookies which my mom fondly remembers from her childhood.  I'm sure I'll mess them up, but we shall see.  I did do very well with her Italian meatball cookies a few years ago.  Hmm maybe I'll add those onto my baking list.

I also have to get one more nail design in before Christmas.  I have a few ideas planned out, but I'm not 100% sure what I'm going to do.  Today I decided to do a Rudolph design using one of my new China Glaze Grinch collection polishes.  Every year I do a Santa suit manicure, but this year my friend Caroline said I should do a Rudolph design and give credit to those reindeer who are pulling the old man around on the sleigh.

So I took the polish and re-created a look by Nails by Cambria.  Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Ho! Ho! No.
  • China Glaze - Merry Whatever.
  • Acrylics
Isn'  I love Ho! Ho! No.  Not because of the color, but because of the name.  Actually I love the names of all the polishes in this collection that I bought.  This polish actually covers completely in one coat, but I used two for mine.  Kind of a pain in the butt to remove, but well worth it because it is a gorgeous shade of a Christmas red with a gold shimmer.

I love my little Rudolph too.  Seriously is the best one I have ever done.  If I were to re-create this manicure, I would probably add an accent nail in there of a different color to break up all the red.  I always feel like red polish looks odd on me, but I did get a lot of compliments.  Okay, maybe I'd do it exactly the same.

What do you think?  Like this manicure?

Until next time, <3.
