12 Days of Christmas: Wrapped Presents

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 12 Days of Christmas nail art challenge is presents. I really enjoyed creating this one and I hope you’ll like it too! These pictures almost didn’t make it to the blog. Something weird happened while I was copying them from my camera and I lost the whole folder. I tried to restore them but I couldn’t and I thought they were lost forever… luckily my boyfriend came to the rescue and he was able to restore them! Now we can all enjoy them 🙂Painted Fingertips | Christmas Present NailsI was inspired by this post by The Nailasaurus, where she also did multicoloured wrapped presents. I loved her version so I was very keen to try it myself. Painted Fingertips | Christmas Present NailsI used a different base colour for each nail plus 3 different bow colours. Starting from the thumb, the base colours are: Renaissance Cosmetics Rosie-Osie, ILNP Mutagen, Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Lava, Revlon Fierce, and Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Scarab. The bow colours are Tip Top Gold Mine, Nails Inc Cambridge Terrace, and ILNP Cygnus Loop. I did the outlines with white acrylic paint.
