12 Days of Christmas: Christmas Tree

Good morning everyone!!

Today is December 2nd so do you know what that means?! The nail art challenge that Lorene at Over Polished Nails and myself created officially starts!! Woohoo! The first challenge of the 12DoC challenge is Christmas Trees and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The Christmas tree tape mani that Nailside did a wonderful tutorial of was what I really wanted to try so I gave it a shot!! Check it out :)



Colors used:
- Sinful Colors San Francisco 
- Maybelline Color Show Bold Gold










I didn't even realize my pinky got a little messed up until I started editing these pictures   -_- Oh well! I still think they came out so cute! I wish I had red star rhinestones for the toppers but blue still works well :) 

So what do you guys think?! 

Don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY! And make sure you check out all of the other bloggers amazing designs today!! I know I can't wait to see them!! 

Thanks for reading :)

    1. Thanks so much!! :) I generally use a China Glaze Fast Forward top coat before I try to do the tape and let it dry for like a half hour... that way it won't stick to the polish!

  14. Superb! I have tried tape manicures twice and failed miserably. It has to be so precise. So I really admire this manicure of yours. It's outstanding!

    1. Thanks so much!!! :) I had so much trouble with tape manis when I first started... the key is to let your base polish dry COMPLETELY before attempting... LOL
