12 Days of Nail Art: Day #10 - Inspired By A Holiday Song

I'm back!

That means its time to show you another manicure for Plump & Polished's 12 Days of Nail Art!

Today's prompt was "Inspired by a Holiday Song".

Now, there are a multitude of songs to choose from of course, and with them a ton of amazing ways to represent them in nail art form.

I've seen quite a few lovely manicures in the past.  However, you know me, I always try and break the norm, so I wanted to depict a song that maybe not everyone knows or thinks of.

A true Southern classic...guessed it yet?

That's right!!  Elmo & Patsy's "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer"!

If you haven't heard it, here's the video haha.

A comedy masterpiece for the holidays of course!

So, now, you're probably wondering how I could have possibly made this into a manicure...well here goes!

 I wanted to make a background that looked like a grandmother's house coat.  So i used China Glaze Sweet Hook for the blue and painted on the little flowers using a dotting tool and acrylic paint.  And of course, it's not enough to have a housecoat patterned nail...this grandma got run over after all!  So i had to add little hoof prints and sleigh tracks with black acrylic paint and a black striper.

Here's a close up!

So what do you guys think? 

Leave me comments, questions, suggestions, and requests below!

Hugs & Kisses & Great Polishes!
