Are you guys excited that Christmas is just around the corner??? I sure am! I am currently sick with a pretty bad sore throat, and I am really hoping it is completely better by Christmas Eve (fingers crossed). Today’s Christmas Countdown design is a nice and easy one, perfect for when you don’t feel well but still want to take some time and glam-up your nails. Sometimes when you’re sick, pampering yourself is just what you need! This design is very simple, so it is great for those kinds of days.
I began by painting my nails with a wonderful gold color. This is China Glaze’s “Mingle with the Kringles”, which I have done a review of previously. Click here to see that! I love this color and think it is just so festive.
The next step requires 2 different sized dotting tools, or you could use a q-tip and a tooth pick. This will give you two different sized dots, which is the goal. You want to make a row of large green dots down the center of your nails. I used China Glaze’s “Running in Circles” which is my all-time favorite green. It’s sparkly and bright, and is just perfect for this time of year. Next, I took China Glaze’s “Just Be-Claws” and made smaller dots on both sides of the green dots. I spaced them so that they were not directly aligned with the green dots, but more like windowed between them. Then I put China Glaze’s “Twinkle Lights” on my ring finger to bring the whole design together. Have a look!
I think this is a great festive manicure that is really easy to achieve. It looks like you put a lot of effort into it, but really all you did was dip a Q-tip and toothpick into different polishes. How easy is that? I’m off to go drink lots of fluids and nap. See you guys tomorrow for Christmas Countdown Day 7!
