Winter Holiday Challenge Week 2

This is an update to my previous post about Zoya Ornate. This week for the challenge we're doing Festival of Lights and also Presents and Gift Wrap. I decided to once again combine the two themes for a manicure... and also looking at next week's themes I kind of went ahead with the first one as well. So anyway, since my family hasn't been Jewish for a few hundred years (to the best of my knowledge) and I was raised Protestant, I went ahead and did a Christmas lights theme for the Festival of Lights theme.

So this manicure did not come out as planned AT ALL. I was planning on doing some stamping, but it just did not want to work for me. It was just one of those days. So instead, I just did some freehand work using Zoya Holly, Konad Special Polish Green, Kiss Nail Art Polish in Black, and miscellaneous glitter polishes. I wanted it to look like you were looking down through the branches of a Christmas tree, down at the presents. I used Zoya Electra as a final touch to give it a hint of tinsel or garland. We always used tinsel on our Christmas trees in my family, so my first thought was tinsel. It definitely looks like a Christmas tree exploded on my nails, but not quite what I had in mind :P

eh, I tried!
