Christmas is just around the corner!
And it is time for Santa Claus to make an appearance of course. As you might know by now, I love purple. And I found the most gorgeous purple wrapping paper with Santa and Snowmans and Christmas everything, which inspired today’s mani.
For the song. I picked one of my faves: Santa Baby.
Do you know what you want Santa to bring you for Christmas?
For me, it’s a car (a real car) and new followers on my blog.
On to Nail Talk!
My pinky and thumb are all about the purple glitter. Inspired by the wrapping paper colors, I did a striped design on my middle and index fingers. Then the accent, and best part of the mani: Santa’s face, with a purple hat of course.
For the stripes I started with the lightest color as my base. And used striping tape to make the ‘perfect’ lines. Lots of purple polishes were used here, and silver.
For Santa I started with a few coats of the nude polish (it’s quite sheer so I needed a few coats). Then with dotting tools I did all the details. Believe it or not, I only did this nail once. Proud moment for me right there.
PS. The mani in real life looks way better. It’s shame the flash took a bit of the awesomeness away.
