Christmas is Coming

It feels like someone flipped a switch yesterday which just made everyone go mental! Suddenly everyone has gone crazy for Christmas so I thought I may as well leap in to the mania head first and get started on some Christmas manis. I'm sure there will be more to come, I just thought I should ease myself in today with something mildly festive!



I started with one coat of PVA Glue (I know it sounds insane, but it makes removing the glitter so much easier). Once that was dry, I used 3 coats of Sally Hansen Gilded Lily* and stamped on a swirly design from Bundle Monster Plate BM314 using Sally Hanses InstaDri in Rapid Red.

  6. Wowww I love that gold! And I'm the same way, all of a sudden I found myself thinking about festive nail art. I eased my way in by layering some red/gold glitter over a red polish :)

  20. Oh, lovely! I've always like that colour combination but normally I see gold stamped on red--I always wondered if delicate red stamping would even show up over a glimmery metallic gold. I now see that the answer is YES! :D

  22. This reminds me of the look Goldie Starling did for Cirque Du Soleil, also with the red and gold curlywurly. Very beautiful!
