Reindeer On My Nails ♥

Heya everyone!

How are you all today? ♥

I've been enjoying quite a lazy day before going to work, watching TV, starting my training season again, knitting and stuff like that. Totally cool, totally fun. I also got the new H&M catalog for SS14. So I'll be looking through that later tonight and seeing whether it has some nice ideas for updating my style for the spring. I actually have some ideas of my own already, but we shall see if they're anything close to the actual fashion trends.

Anyways, today is again a nail day here on the blog, I still have these nails from before Christmas that I didn't have the chance to show you earlier. But hey, better late than never, right? Both of these designs have reindeer on them, but that's as far as the similarities go, actually.

First up, a red and white mani with snow, candy stripes, sweater print and a reindeer (which you will see a couple of pics below).

The idea for doing these came to me while I was scrolling through Christmas nails on Google before holidays, and it seemed like a lot of fun as I had never done anything quite like this before.

Here you can actually see the reindeer. This was free-hand painting, so it's not perfect at all, but it was pretty cute, though.

The polishes used here were China Glaze Roguish Red, China Glaze White On White and China Glaze There's Snow One Like You. All the painting is done with just nail art brushes and dotting tools, so no stamping was involved. I really, really liked these nails and I think these totally inspired me to do more holiday nail art later in life.

The other mani here is a bit more colorful and not so traditional. This was much inspired by Cutepolish from YouTube and Instagram, who's an amazing nail artist and who makes fantastic tutorials. You can find her YouTube channel here, if you fancy to see her amazing work.

Here, like in the first design, you can spot a little reindeer hanging around. This one is pink, though. Because I thought it's cute.

The point here was to make a not so traditional holiday mani, and to try out new things and tips I had read about over the Internet. And I must say, these came out more nice than I expected. I'm not much of an enthusiast for Christmas manis usually, but this one was pretty fun.

I used China Glaze White On White, China Glaze Escaping Reality, L'Oreal Color Riche Green Couture, Ciaté Mini Paint Pot Mojito and a bunch of different colored Kiss Nail Art Paints. I topped the whole thing off with China Glaze Fairy Dust to give the design that extra sparkle.

So that's what I have for you guys today, I hope you enjoyed this post even half as much I enjoyed writing it. I need to go now and get some tea before heading to my work shift, but if all goes as planned, I will have another post for you tomorrow. ♥

What do you all think about these manis? And, what are you wearing on your nails today?
