Abstract Christmas Trees

Finally, my Christmas manicure! It isn’t great, but I like it. Mostly because one of my other new Emily de Molly polishes, Monet’s Garden, is absolutely stunning and a wonderfully perfect teal-green!


The design is simple, a duplication of those messy wavy trees that seem to be all over pinterest. Mine are not the best, but I’ll take it anyway! Also, I’ve never tried drawing stars with my non-dominant hand before. That was…exciting. Right. Also difficult.


Monet’s Garden is an absolutely stunning teal/green polish (green with a touch more blue than traditional green). I didn’t have to dig for glitter at all! Shown here is three coats of polish. I found medium large teal and light green hex glitters, along with smaller green and teal hexes, and a really fun smattering of pink/red and purple smaller glitters. The color contrast was fantastic! The polish did need two coats of top coat to be smooth, but didn’t go on thick or gloopy. I was on the fence about buying this one, but I’m so glad I did!

~ Gold: Essie – Penny Talk
~ Red: OPI – All I Want For Christmas (is OPI)


Hope you enjoyed my Christmas mani! I got Monet’s Garden from Llarowe, if you love it enough to get one yourself. I have two more coming, so stay tuned!
