Christmas Mani...kind of...

Hi lovelies! Am I the only one who has an absolute love/hate relationship with public holidays?? I love them! They are seriously awesome but it takes me about a week to get back into the full swing of things. Like it will feel like a Tuesday today but I know it is already Wednesday. This is probably going to go on till Saturday and guess what then? There is a whole lot of public holidays coming up next week but I don't mind them! Who minds Christmas day??
I decided to finally start joining in on some Christmas manis. The mani I have today doesn't look very Christmas-esque but when I saw Ordinary Misfit do THIS gorgeous stamping over a holograpic polish it immediately reminded me of gift wrapping and I just had to give it a go!






 
This is insanely simple! I started by laying down 2 coats of China Glaze DV8. When this was dry I stamped a full nail pattern using Tip Top Nails Cha Cha Cha and BM-319 (Bundle Monster 2012 set).







This mani didn't come out exactly as I envisioned but I liked it none the less! I like how the Tip Top Cha Cha Cha looks very subtle on the holographic base. Hopefully my next Christmas manis will look a bit more like ...well, Christmas!


If you would like me to swatch any of the colors you saw in today’s post, please let me know via email or drop me a comment below. More than willing to oblige! 

Lots of mad love...
