Here are my STOCKING themed nails, day 18 or the 24 day XMAS CHALLENGE! (WOAH!)
The thing i love most about christmas stockings ( other than their contents!!) is the different fabrics and patterns they are made of. I focused on the funky mix of different flannel fabrics that are commonly seen on homemade stockings.
Starting with the thumb i used O.P.I. - jade is the new black as the base color, then created a plaid pattern using Nail Star - medium metallic green and Nail Star - white (#108). I then wanted to include a 3D element without having to use something 3D, so I painted on a button using Love & Beauty - gold, Nail Star - white (#108) for the highlight and Nail Star - black (#109) for the shadow and center.
The red nail was done using Chanel - laque rouge base 2 coats with Kiss - gold striper swirls.
The middle finger has a base coat of Ruby Kisses - french white, 3 coats, Nail Star - red stripes, Nail Star - medium metallic green dots. The Ring finger was also done with 3 coats of Ruby Kisses - french white, the dots were done using Nail Star - black dots with Kiss - gold striper on top. Finally an outline of a heart was added using the same black.
The last nail was done using O.P.I. - jade is the new black 2 coats, with a white dot pattern done with Nail Star - white (#108)
i hope you like them :)
