I realize this is not particularly Christmas-y, but the two Christmas manis that I do have are not quite ready yet (aka I need to transfer the photos for one and am actively WEARING the other currently) but hopefully I’ll get my act together by tomorrow! In the meantime, we have a cool-toned gradient with black. (And sorry for not posting yesterday, I totally lost track of time!!!)
For some odd reason, everyone really liked my accent nail (men, yes men, in the mall stopped to ask me how I did “that effect”. Apparently the concept of black/white glitter polish is novel?), despite that the matte/glossy dichotomy on the rest of my nails is far cooler! At least to me. Also I love striping tape.
This is again a great use for matte polish…you get the whole finish contrast! Here I used my very favorite matte polish, Rascal by Mentality. If you don’t own a black matte, you totally should. Well, if you do nail art. Or want to try nail art :-p
~ Black matte: Mentality – Rascal
~ Green: Maybelline – Green with Envy
~ Blue: Essie – Rock the Boat
~ Purple: Essie – Full Steam Ahead
~ Black and white: Maybelline – Clearly Spotted
This might not be winter-themed, but I do like it! If you want to pick up Rascal for yourself, head over to the Mentality website. The polish is $5.40 right now (with free US shipping) if you use the code EVA. The code is only good for a few more days so if you’ve had your eye on something, grab it now!! Happy Christmas Eve (and end of Hanukkah :-D).
