12 posts of Christmas: 2. Last year’s mixed nail art

This is my manicure from Christmas last year. There was no uniform theme perhaps, just glitter and festivities. The Christmas tree was quite tricky to perfect, I used a toothpick to shape semi-dry nail polish.


I started with a white base, then added silver glitter (except for the ring finger where I used Barry M glitter as the base coat), and then I added the festive details.


I was not so confident writing the 'Ho Ho', so my lovely fiancé helped me.
