12 Days of Christmas: Freestyle

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of the 12 Days of Christmas Challenge from Challenge Your Nail Art! I’m so glad to have made it to the end. Today’s nail art is inspired by some recent Christmas decorations nail art from Will Paint Nails For Food. I really love Meghan’s blog and her nails always look beautifully artistic with perfect line work. I couldn’t get mine looking as perfect as hers but I liked my hanging Christmas decorations nonetheless! Painted Fingertips | Christmas decorationsI started with a base of Tip Top Champagne Whispers and topped that with Essence Laser Show to get the sparkle and black specks. The rest was done freehand with a small nail art brush. Painted Fingertips | Christmas decorationsI started with black acrylic paint for the outlines then filled in the decorations using Essence Miss Universe, NYXΒ Matte Chocolate, and Tip TopΒ Gold Digger. I topped it all with a matte top coat. Painted Fingertips | Christmas decorationsI hope you’ve enjoyed all my posts for this challenge! I’ve had fun doing it! I’m hoping to join in on another challenge in January but I will still see if I have time for it. 12_days_of_christmasTake a look at some more nails for the last day of the challenge at the link:
