Ho Ho Hello!!!!
So I might be a little Christmas Crazy, but Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween are over...so I'm in full-on Christmas mode now! (Don't worry I don't light any decorations until after November 11th out of respect.)
I'm already planning my Holiday themed manis and have been purchasing supplies for them since the summer months! I thought it would be fun to go back over the last few years and see what I had done and share some with you!
This first was from 2014, aka, the year my nail art obsession began. As you can see, it was all done by hand with brushes and dotting tools as those were my only skills at the time. Not too shabby for my first stab at Christmas nail art.
This next was from 2015, and I had mastered the nail vinyls and tape by then! But my Santas are still a little derpy! 😆
Last year, 2016, I had also got a handle on stamping! And as you can see my Santa had much improved from previous attempts! I do love the candy cane stripe designs, especially with holo!
This year I have completely changed my nail polish collection and now use exclusively Indie brands. Here are two of my new Christmas polishes and the subtle holiday themed manis I did with them.
Red is Powder Perfect, Sophisticated Santa, stamped with Twinkled T Stamping Polish in Lit
The base polishes are from my go-to Canadian Indie polish online retailer, Harlow & Co. I treat myself to goodies there often (sometimes weekly) as she offers Free Shipping (within Canada) on orders over $25, and they arrive FAST!
I have plans to do many many many more Holiday themed manis before Christmas, if you'd like to see them right away (as some won't make it here), feel free to come follow my Instagram, krd8nails!
Fa la la la la la la la love ya!🎄~ Kelly
