Wreath Half Moon

For Christmas (Merry Christmas to all you who celebrate!), I was inspired (yet again) by Sarah at Chalkboard Nails, this time to somewhat recreate her holiday half moon wreath! I decided I wanted different bows, and that I wanted to try dotting on my wreath. I really like the result!

I started with one of my favorite polishes, Blaze by Zoya. I then dotted on three different colored greens with two types of dotting tools (an unbent hair pin and an unbent paper clip. I’m classy), and finally painted on the ribbons.

I know I’m not supposed to say these things, but look at the detail on those ribbons! I am impressed with myself 🙂
