12 Days of Christmas -Nails – Day 11 – Stamps (not for the mail) December 22, 2011

Before I get on with my post I want to say hi to all of you! I have gotten quite a few new followers over the last two weeks and I want to say hi. I’m so glad you are finding my posts interesting enough that you want to read more! ┬áI’m always open to comments, so if there is something you’d like to see or a product you’d like me to review, just let me know ­čÖé

“On the Eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me…Eleven Pipers Piping” I like music – I wonder what type of music they are playing? Perhaps “The Twelve days of Christmas”

I’ve got some super fun nails today – though they have nothing to do with pipers piping. ┬áI used my stamps from the Born Pretty store and there were some super cute christmas stamps! ┬áI have Christmas trees, snowmen, candy canes, Christmas bells, and rudolph the red nosed reindeer. ┬áCheck ’em out.

   

What is your favorite Christmas or winter symbol?

12 Days of Christmas -Nails – Day 10 – Snow on the ground December 21, 2011

“On the Tenth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…Ten Lords a-Leaping” Maybe they could dance with the the nine-ladies dancing, but one poor guy will be left out.

My nails certainly haven’t felt left out this holiday season. I’ll change it up from the traditional Christmas hues to a nice winter snowy color. When I was applying my white Zoya┬áfollowed by Cosmetics Arts Fairy Dust, the song “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas” kept going through my head.┬á My nails remind me of that fake snow that people use on their miniature towns. It’s all glittery and white.

What do you like to do when it snows out?

“On the Eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…Eight Maids a-milking” Hmmm, what are the eight maids milking? I haven’t gotten any cows, just lots of birds.

Something else we haven’t got is snow – at least here in Seattle. It’s been a fairly warm winter so far (*knock on wood), but though I love snow I do not love driving to work in snow. So instead I decided to re-create snow on my fingers! This is Sally Hansen’s All Wined Up with Cosmetics Arts Fairy Dust white glitter. I put on 1 coat (that’s all it takes to be opaque) of the All Wined up and then once it was dry I put a super light coat of the Fairy Dust on starting half way up the nail, then half way up that I put a medium coat of more Fairy Dust. Then finally I put a nice thick bit closer to the tip – it gives a similar effect to sponge painting I’ve seen some bloggers do – but this was much quicker with less cleanup. As usual the nails are covered with my standard Seche Vite

What is your favorite thing to do in the snow?
