Christmas Nails

I hope you all had a very nice holiday.  I am still in New York and it's the quiet before the storm.  The weather forecast is for us to get up to two feet of snow between tonight and tomorrow.  Personally, I LOVE snow and cannot wait to play in it.  I am just glad the timing is what it is so I can still get home on Saturday.

Too bad the snowblower is out of commission.  This storm would definitely drop enough snow to plow!

Now I told you to get excited for my niece's creations.  Today is the first of a few I will be showing you.  We did this Christmas Eve for the Day.  She wanted us to have matching base colors.  She wanted candy canes on hers so I did a candy theme on mine.  It's super awesome!

Now in lieu of the silly bottle shot, I thought I'd show you the backyard snow as it is now.  Then later on in another post, I will show you storm pictures.

Is this not absolutely gorgeous???  Look at that blue sky.  I just love snow and especially when it sticks to the trees like this.  We already have about a foot of snow on the ground.  My niece and I are to go out and play in it this afternoon before the storm comes later today.

On to the manis.  I started with base color of Bettina Chic which is a stunning fire engine red.  Stay tuned for NEW Bettina coming mid January!  I cannot wait to show you them!

Anywho, here are the starting shots of my nails.

Pretty right?  Next I stamped with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White using Bundle Monster plate BM 306 for my nails and Cheeky plate CH17 for my niece's nails.  Here is that step on me.

So this is the candy theme to go with her candy canes.  For her, I added a layer of Northern Lights holo topcoat before I stamped.  She wanted extra sparkle.  I topped mine off with my funky using China Glaze Emerald Sparkle.  Here are the results.

 Here is my niece's nails along with a shot of both of ours together.

Now remember, she picked out all the colors and designs.  I think at 6, that's pretty darn awesome!  I hope when she gets older, she still likes polish-I need someone to gift my collection to when I stop polishing!

I hope you have enjoyed this post.  I hope I don't get too buried in snow later today!  I will bring you more in a later post!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
