Christmas Tree Xmas Nails

I don't have the proper nail equipment, so I used a regular tiny paint brush to create my tree! The brush actually helped me making it look like a tree's texture!  I also added pink and blue dots as ornaments but you can really only see the pink! What do you think?! Fun, right?!

Candy Cane Nails

So I saw tons of candy cane nails online and wanted to try them myself! Admittedly, they came out a bit messy but I still think they are fun! The tape doesn't take long to lay out and then painting process is easy. I think the main thing to doing candy cane nails is making sure some of the lines are thin and some are thick. You ever notice on a candy cane how some have two thin lines followed by one thick line?

Peppermint Cookies

I recently went to a Holiday Cookie Exchange and because I had to make so many dozens of cookies, I went for the easiest option- a premade cookie mix that only required rolling the dough into a ball and then baking!

Swivel Nail Tattoo Sticker Nails

I loved how these came out! I used Nail Tattoo Stickers that I ordered on they are pretty easy. They come in a sheet with the designs on it and then you simply cut around the design's shape to size it to your nail. The designs are different sizes on the sheet too. I found that cutting the design small enough so there wasn't much excess clear material was best to help it fit onto the nail. Anyone else have that experience too? If I made the excess material too big, it looked messy on the nail.
I also then took some silver polish and free-handed a little silver tip on each nail. I thought this really made a final touch! Hehe, I thought this swivel nail manicure was so cool!

Chocolate Peppermint Truffle

This smells sooo good. The fragrance is Chocolate Peppermint Truffle by BetterHomes & Gardens. It's quite fragrant, filling the air with a minty, deep chocolate scent. So nice for winter time!

Halfies Nails

So, this is not a version of Tape Nails, my friends. I wanted to try polishing one layer of one color and then tipping off a half of the nail with another color. I thought it would be cool to do colors in the same family- what do you think?
