12 Days of Christmas / Christmas Sparkle

Today's sparkles are not too exciting... But they're NEW!
I got these three beauties from MyLove for Christmas so just had to use these! 

 OPI Liquid Sands (left to right): It's Frosty Outside; Emotions; Kiss Me At Midnight 

See the lovely photos :)

(Flash- which I don't usually use but it shows the sparkle so well!)

What do you think? Jealous!?

12 Days of Christmas / Christmas Decorations

So today's theme was pretty open. There were numerous options and ideas I had, however i settled on these...
I had just recently obtained more OPI liquid sands polishes (which I do love at the moment)
I thought the look and feel of these polishes is so similar to that of those glitter Christmas baulbals... So here you have it!

Here are the polishes:
(L to R: Magazine Cover Mouse (red) Solitaire (silver), Tiffany Case (blue), What Wizardry is This? (Bronze), Jinx (Orange))

Now for the nails... I hope you like

12 Days of Christmas / Snow!

Yay! Today is pretty and snow...
I attempted snow men and snow flakes

The snow men are free hand. Snowflakes are a mix of bundle monster and konad stamping plates. 

Check out the photos!

12 Days of Christmas / Inspired by a Christmas Movie

 Go on... have a guess...

to be fair I love Christmas time and Christmas movies!
It was hard for me to choose one... and at any other time in my life I would have done multiple designs for all my favourite moives...

but here you go...
Ok, not so easy to guess...

it's the Polar Express!


This is supposed to be the train on the ice...
MyLove asked if it was a trendy abstract design, so possibly a fail.



Go on,
show me yours!

12 Days of Christmas / Santa's workshop


One photo today - hopefully faster upload and it meets the theme....

I've got an elf on the thumb, because obviously they're key in Santa's workshop.
The list of children- so Santa knows who to make presents for; a hammer - to make the little toys; a roll of wrapping paper (yes that's what that is) - to wrap all the presents; and the North Pole itself - because there's where Santa's workshop is!

What do you think?
Don't forget to share your design

12 Days of Christmas / based on a song!


My Favourite! 

Walking in a winter wonderland...

Can you tell which nail corresponds  to which line. 

Sleigh bells ring 
Are you listening 
In the lane 
Snow is glistening 
A beautiful sight 
We're happy tonight 
Walking in a winter wonderland 

Gone away is the bluebird 
Here to stay is a new bird 
He sings a love song 
As we go along 
Walking in a winter wonderland 

In the meadow we can build a snowman 
Then pretend he is Parson Brown 
He'll say: Are you married? 
We'll say: No man 
But you can do the job 
When you're in town 

Later on 
We'll conspire
As we dream by the fire 
To face unafraid 
The plans that we've made 
Walking in a winter wonderland 
Winter wonderland 

In the meadow we can build a snowman 
And pretend that he's a circus clown 
We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman
Until the other kiddies knock him down 

When it snows 
Ain't it thrilling 
Though your nose gets a chilling 
We'll frolic and play 
The Eskimo way 
Walking in a winter wonderland 
Yeah we're walking in a winter
Yeah we're walking in a winter
We're walking a winter wonderland 

Show me your design!

12 Days of Christmas / Christmas where you live



So today is the 7th of December! 
The theme today is Christmas where you live...

Here in New Zealand it is HOT at Christmas time. Beach weather with plenty of sun burn! 

My nails (hopefully) reflect my summer Chrismas 

Jandles, sunshine, summer cocktails, bikinis and driving around after dark looking at all the fairy lights! 

(Not my best design - but I liked using the bright colours!)




Ooooh inspired by a song next! How exciting! :)

See you on the 10th!
