The Winter Holiday Challenge - Christmas Decorations

Day 5 of the Winter Holiday Challenge brings us some fun decorations! The Christmas tree and it's lovely ornaments are one of the things I have always wished I'd celebrated the Christmas. Alas, I was born to the wrong family (a Jewish one)... So I have a little tree only on my nails but I did try to decorate it nicely and I hope you'll like it.

I started with two thin coats of Gilry Bits - Arctic Sunrise, a beautiful sky blue with glass flakies and pink shimmer. This polish always makes me think of those huge ice blocks from Alaska that I saw on the TV. It is so cold and so gorgeous! I guess if worn by itself, it could have enjoyed a third coat. But for my nail art I thought the two were enough!

Next I free-handed drew the tree using Zoya Holy. I decorated it with various polishes from Sally Hansen's Chrome collection and I stamped all the other nails with Bunny Nails HD07 plate - twice: once with China Glaze Passion and then with Sally Hansen - Burmese Ruby Chrome.Somehow on my index nail the two colors turn one almost exactly on top of the other which kind of annoyed me, but I didn't want to repaint my nail all over again. The irony is, when I will need a stamping to go this way - it will never work! Oh well...


I hope you liked my tree and ornaments. While you're at it - don't forget to check the other participants of this lovely challenge!

Artic Sunrise is gorgeous. It reminds me of Sinful Colors Cinderella, but a few shades darker. Your tree is so cute.
