Digit-al Dozen's Holiday Week - Christmas Nail Art

Hi....Is your shopping done? I'm pretty much done. Still have presents to wrap though! My boys are soooo excited :) Moving right along after yesterday's fail...

Here's my take on candy canes and Xmas trees :) 

 OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Zoya Rekha, Ziv and Holly, OPI The Spy Who Loved Me
 I made a pretty simple design, but I think it gives a pretty stunning effect for something so simple. I started with 2 coats of MBSW for the white nails and 2 coats of Ziv for the gold. Once dry, I lined up striping tape in a triangle and then inside the triangle and painted over it with Holly (the green) and carefully peeled off the tape. Then I lined up diagonal strips on the other nails and painted on the reds, Rekha and TSWLM.
 The stripes came out perfect!!! Until I went to top coat! ARGGG My Seche failed me. NOoNoNooOO! I know, you can't see the red smears, because I'm crazed and went over the smears with a tiny tiny nail art brush and white.


Wish I didn't have to take this one off, it's really fun :)

See you tomorrow for the last Digit-al Dozen challenge of the month!
