Holiday Nails

5 Dec

I love painting my nails. I may not be very good at it but it’s something I enjoy doing. Kind of like snowboarding, I’m not good at it but I like the activity anway! I like how painted nails look, even when I get nail polish all over the place.

Since it’s December and officially Christmas time I decided to go for a festive holiday design. I used Avon Nail Art Design Strips in Candy Cane. Like I said before I’m not very good with nails–I realize there are ragged edges and it’s a bit sloppy. From a distance it looks cute! For the silver accent nail I used Julep Maven nail polish in Missy.

I like using nail decals because I can get a creative design on my nails without having to go through the process of failing miserably. Here’s another one I did for Halloween:

I used Julep Maven nail polish, the black is Cleopatra and the glitter on top is Beatrix. That silver nail is once again Missy. I seem to be favoring that one for an accent color! The spider designs are  Avon Nail Art Design Strips. If you’re curious about how to use the nail design strips, Avon created this handy infographic!
