Oh Christmas Tree

Hello nail friends. How are your holiday preparations going? We finished the last of our shopping yesterday (you know, getting it done early this year). It seems harder to get in the Christmas spirit every year. It's just always so busy with work and baking and seeing five different sides of the family it's easy for me to get burned out. I've been wondering what are your favorite Christmas traditions or things that help you get in the holiday mood? 

My favorite tradition from childhood is St Nick putting candy in your shoe every Sunday morning in December before Christmas. But only if you leave you shoe by the front door cause St Nick ain't got time to go looking for your shoe all over the house. We also learned that it doesn't do any good to try to trick him by leaving two different shoes. St Nick is smarter than he looks. I tried this tradition with my husband last year, but he kept putting away all the shoes! I guess St Nick also doesn't buy my excuses about why shoes need to be left out instead of going into the closet where they "belong."

I've got on two coats of Orly Jealous, Much? as my base. For the trees I taped off triangles and then sponged on the darker green, Revlon Colorstay Rain Forest. I used a small brush and Maybelline Color Show Bold Gold for the stars and garland detail. The ornaments are glequins from Born Pretty. These were really easy to do if you're looking for a last minute nail idea.


  1. Lol! My boyfriend has the same loose association about laundry and where it "belongs" but he doesn't have an excise like St. Nick. I love this mani! It looks so well put together!

  2. I love them, they are so colorful
