Happy Ho Ho Holodays!

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates!

I have been having too much fun playing with nail studs lately and although I had something entirely different planned for today, this happened at the last minute and I love how it turned out. Truly I think often the best manicures are the spontaneous, unplanned ones...

The manicure was inspired by my favorite pair of holiday earrings which I have been wearing a lot recently. The trees were made by my dad and his coworkers. For the past five years, they've come up with a different design, including these trees, snowmen, champagne flutes, bells, and even the Space Needle (yay Seattle!). I always look forward to wearing these during the holidays and each year I look forward to see what they have created. I wanted to find a way to capture these trees in my manicure...

For the manicure I used the beautiful green holo base of Lacquer Lust Ho Ho Holodays! I stamped the snowflakes from Winstonia plate W120 using Pure Ice Silver Mercedes and lots of patience, since each snowflake is stamped individually. Although I love the flexibility of being able to arrange them any way I want I won't deny there is the lazy part of me wants them all prearranged in a full nail stamp....

I created the tree using triangular nail studs from Winstonia and topped it off with a star from the BornPrettyStore. I curved one edge of the triangles to better fit the nail curve and keep the corners from sticking out as they did when laying completely flat...

Thanks for looking!
