CYNA: 12 days - Glitter

Hey everyone! As much as I love glitter, I wasn't too inspired by today's prompt of "Glitter". I used China Glaze Winter Holly and then Mickey heads that were ordered from ellagee. At first I intended for the red Mickey heads to stand in as holly berries; then I decided to stick gold Mickey heads on the other finger. I don't even know why. My pinky finger is a glitter explosion with China Glaze Pizzaz layered over Winter Holly.

CYNA: 12 days - Christmas decorations

Happy Monday Folks! I'm excited for this week because next week is my Christmas break. I haven't had a Christmas break off from work(school) since I was in high school. That's over 10 years ago!! So I just have to make it through this week and then I can relax and paint my nails.

So today's theme for 12 days challenge was to do Christmas decorations. I love Christmas decorations and if I had my choice, I'd have Christmas decorations EVERYWHERE in our home. So for today's prompt I made like Christmas exploded all over my nails.

My polishes are the same ones I've been using for the last two prompts as well as acrylic paint.

CYNA: 12 days - red and green

Hey everyone! today's the 7th day of the 12 days nail art challenge and today's prompt is red and green.I wanted to do a design that was a little different than what I usually do so I tried to do Christmas plaid. I started with China Glaze Red Satin and then used acrylic paint to make my plaid stripes. On my ring finger I used Salon Perfect Sugar Cube and then layered Sally Hansen Green Rocket and Rosy Shooter.

CYNA: 12 days - 2 turtle doves

Today's theme I knew was going to be the most challenging but I didn't avoid it on purpose. I did the wrong prompt and that only caused me panic because I was wondering almost all day about which line I should do from the 12 days of Christmas song. I chose to do "Two turtle doves..." because I thought it would be easy because I had a plate with what looked like a dove. However once I stamped it, the image didn't transfer so there was a whole fiasco there. I won't get into that now because I must get to bed. I used Sally Hansen CSM Jaded, and everything else was done with acrylic paint. I did use a stamping plate but I had to fill the image in with acrylic paint so it resembled a bird.

CYNA: 12 days - ice blue and white

Hey everyone! I'm excited about today's post because I get a chance to use a new polish that just arrived in the mail from my "Black Friday shopping". I made my first Sealore order and one of the polishes I ordered fits today's prompt perfectly.

The prompt is ice blue and white colors. Today I'm wearing Bruce-ally Honest which is described as "off white crelly with ice blue shimmer, sky blue hex and white shards throughout." I layered 2 coats over a white polish. On my ring finger is my attempt at icicles or something of that aspect. I was more focused on the polish than the art this time around.
