Hey everyone! So i finished these a few hours ago but had some things to do. so here they are now, my HOLLY themed nails.. day 12 of the 24 days of xmas challenge! What I wanted for this challenge, was have a sort wallpaper effect. I used muted red and green and a white to add to the wallpaper feel, with interchangeable white, red, silver and gold for the holly, and as you can see a gestural as opposed to tight holly print. And decided to add to it even further and making it a patterned/embellished gold tip french.
I also included a picture of the nail plate i made which i used to figure out which colors to use
The base colors I used were Ruby Kisses - french white, Love & Beauty - mint and American Apparel - coney island.
The holly on the white nail i used Kiss - gold glitter striper, and Nail Star - red opaque, On the mint nail I used Nail Star - opaque silver (#114) Nail Star - red, and for the pink i used Nail Star - white 108 and Nail Star - opaque red again.
Next I added a line of auburn nail art beads, and then filled in the space between the nail art beads to the top of my nail with Kiss - gold glitter striper... Seche Vite
If you'd like to know which colors i used for a specific nail on the holly wheel, then let me know!
Stay tuned for tomorrows nail art themed CHRISTMAS TREES!
