12 Days of Nail Art: Day #11 - Christmas Tree


Time for another 12 Days of Nail Art mani! 

Today was a wonderfully cute traditional Christmas prompt...the Christmas tree!!

Now for Christmas trees you can go literal or abstract and just have fun with it, right?

Well, that's what I did!

I can't take all the credit, I did get the idea for my Christmas tree from the lovely MissJenFabulous, who showed her YouTube viewers three adorable Christmas tree nail ideas!

If you haven't watched her other tutorials, they're all really fun!

Anyways, I fell in love with her dot trees and wanted to do my own version!

 For the base I used four coats of Milani HD, a holographic silver (though taking pics in sunlight the holo doesn't show very well at all).  Then for the tree I used various size dotting tools and China Glaze Exotic Encounters, China Glaze Def Defying, Wet n Wild I Red A Good Book, and Pure Ice Free Spirit to make the tree.  And as a finishing touch I fished a pair of gold stars out of my bottle of Wet N Wild Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Here's the close up!

So what do you guys think?!
