12 Days of Christmas Nails: Day 8... All of the Lights

Credit for today's Christmas nails design goes to Joya at Blanket Print Nails who posted a great and simple tutorial to get the holiday lights look on your fingertips. You can find the tutorial here!
Even though mine look more like bunting than holiday lights, I love the way they turned out. The snowy gradient is gorgeous too - I think I need to do more sponging!



I used Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream as a base and sponged Wet n Wild White on to the tips to make a little gradient.
For the lights, I used black acrylic paint, BYS Fern, La Femme Cherry Red, George Buttercup Shine and No7 Poolside Blue.
