Obligatory Christmas nails

I haven't been posting much lately. I'm just so tired these days... no matter how much I sleep :/ dunno what's wrong with me haha I must be getting old

Here is what I'm probably going to be wearing for Christmas... debating whether or not to redo my nails right now. There is some pretty bad tip wear on my right hand and a large chip on my right thumb but I just did my nails last night and am feeling a bit lazy. I didn't do any cute nail art mainly because I can't draw. Also I'm not really into Christmas. Not that I have anything against Christmas I just don't get very excited about it. I absolutely HATE Christmas music and I feel like Christmas shopping is such a chore sometimes. I'm always shopping at the very last minute and totally stressed. My boyfriend keeps calling me the Grinch. Anyway I thought about doing red and green but just went with red and some glitter in case I didn't change my nails again for a while. I didn't want to have totally Christmas nails after Christmas! 

still trying to fiddle with the lighting in my light box. My skin looks so pale and washed out here but at least the polish is the right color

OPI - Big Apple Red (2 coats)

Accent nail: 1 coat of OPI Excuse Moi over 1 coat OPI Big Apple Red

OPI Big Apple Red is a crelly (jelly finish but more opaque than true jelly). It was thin but easy to control and each coat was extremely even. There was still some visible nail line at 2 coats but I was too lazy to do a third. It is not very noticeable normally just under bright light. Underneath Excuse Moi I didn't feel that more coats were necessary since the dense glitter would mostly cover the nail and hide any VNL. 

OPI Excuse Moi is a pink tinted base with silver and pink microglitter and medium sized glitter in various colors. I didn't expect the pink tinted base to change the color of the base color this much. At a distance it almost looks more like Valentine's Day :(. But I got a fair amount of green glitter on most of my accent nails so I think it can still pass for Christmas.
