Yes, it's official. The Christmas manicures are starting here on Globe & Nail. There's less than a month now until Christmas, so it's completely acceptable, right? Right.
This week is Week 2 of the Nail Polish Canada Holiday Nail Art Challenge, and the theme is "Gifts, Presents, Stockings, anything related to you getting the awesome things you want." Since the list of things that I want for Christmas consists mainly of nail polish and my Hogwarts letter, I went a little outside the box with this one.
I essentially painted everyone on Christmas morning. Quite the feat, I know. I was inspired by the exploitable meme "X ALL the Y!" which originated from the blog Hyperbole and a Half. As far as I know, this was first done as nail art by The Nailasaurus, and has been floating around the internet ever since.
I started with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and then added all the details with acrylic paint and a super tiny paintbrush. Two coats of Seche Vite for a smooth finish.
This was definitely a departure from my comfort zone, because I don't often do freehand nail art. Luckily, it turned out way better than I had imagined! *shameless self-pride*
If you like my nail art, you can vote for my entry here! Voting for Week 2 will be open until December 5th.
