Christmas for me doesn't really start until the Christmas Tree is up and decorated by children! I know this seems strange, but it seems totally alien to me to decorate my own tree, when I have children to do it for me. This year has been extra special because Mr 3 and Miss 2 have done the decorating! And I haven't changed any of their placements either, its all exactly as they have left it.
On to my mani, which means the traditional Christmas colours of green for the tree, red for Father Christmas and gold for one of the gifts the wise men bought. Some years I have toyed with other colour schemes, but I always find myself returning to these colours.
I'm afraid there are no sunlight pictures as it poured with rain on Christmas day, and today has been very overcast and windy, so unfortunately you are not seeing this particular mani at its best. Picture Polish Kryptonite was the only colour I could choose for the tree, it being a beautiful holographic deep green colour. Once again this was three coats even though two would have been enough. Then one coat of OPI The Man With The Golden Gun, a real 18ct gold flake topcoat. Lastly one coat of Models Prefer Ruby Slippers a fine red glitter with tiny red and silver hexs. Plus a top coat of Seche Vite to smooth it all out and make it super glossy.
A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year
to you and yours,
may you have peace, health and happiness in 2013
