My First Christmas Nail Art of 2013

I know that today is Thanksgiving but I don't have any thanksgiving themed nail art for you. Being that I don't celebrate it here in the UK and I'm painfully jealous of everyone feasting on turkey dinners today, I thought I'd kick of some Christmas festivities to remind me that I have a delicious roast dinner coming to my dining table soon enough!

This year I really feel like everything's been done when it comes to Christmas nail art but I'm determined to come up with something at least semi-original before the 25th. If you want to see the Christmas designs I've done in the past, you can flick through the archives here!

For starters I used Essie Jag-U-Are (which is the metallic red) and stamped on a fair isle design from Nailz Craze Plate NC03 using BK Matt White. The snowflakes on my thumb are from MoYou London Kitty Plate 09 and the crazy cute decal on my middle finger is from She Sells Seashells. It's a deer but I think it can pass as a reindeer!

The milky white polish with the green and red glitter is Sonnetarium Peppermint Kiss over one coat of Barry M White. The green and gold mix on my pinkie is W7 Cosmic Green over one coat of Ulta3 Mermaid Green.

Finally, I topped it all off with two coats of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

  1. This design is gorgeous! I love it, so detailed and the little reindeer (yes, it can be considered as one ^.~) is too adorable for words!
    We don't celebrate Thanksgiving either so I'm slowly working on Xmas nails as well. Though you're totally right, seems like everything's kinda done before. Yet I really enjoy the reds and greens and golds and just the festive atmosphere on my nails hihi
