Christmas Present Bows


I'm totally in the Christmas spirit! I can't resist playing with fun new designs and colors to create some holiday-themed nails.

Today's nails are Christmas presents. Do you like them? I used 1 coat of OPI Color So Hot It Berns, 2 coats of OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, and the accent nail was done with China Glaze Hologram.

Of course I did the present nail art with my trusty Sharpies. I'm all about Sharpies these days.

2 small rants about this mani:
  1. I'm not sure how the bloggers I read swatched Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, but the ONLY reason I bought it was because of the awesome small red and large hexagonal silver glitters in it. However, this polish is super difficult to get the large hexagonal glitter out of. I mean, I still like it... but it just isn't as cool as some of the swatches I've seen.
  2. Sharpies are sometimes really difficult to work with. Why? They smear. You have to be so super careful when applying top coat because it will smear it all down your nail. So watch out if you try to use Sharpies for your nail art!
OOH! And my Reina Perfume Giveaway ended yesterday. Are you the winner???

  2. SO cute! I have the smearing problem with everything I've used *except* for acrylic paint, so I'm not surprised to hear that the Sharpies smear. And that's why I hate chunky glitter - I have a hard time getting the good stuff to stick! LOL
