Glittery Christmas Trees


Hi everyone! Sorry I'm a bit behind on commenting! I wanted to get this mani done and up ASAP for Nail Polish Canada's Holiday Nail Art Contest. I'm not very good at freehand and I don't really have many holiday stamping images so I decided to recreate this look by @banicured.

I started with Layla No. 24 as my base. Once that was dry I taped off triangles and sponged on Sephora by OPI Flurry Up! (silver microglitter and medium size hex glitter) and then Icing Lemme See Your Peacock (medium hex glitter in magenta, blue, and green). I peeled off the tape immediately. I felt that my trees needed a topper so I went in with a dotting tool and Revlon Gold Coin.

It was hard to get a crisp line because some glitter ended up right on the edge of the tape and came off, making the lines a bit jagged. I think it's so sparkly that it's hard to notice though.

If you like my mani please consider voting for me in Nail Polish Canada's Holiday Nail Art Contest! :) Thanks for your support everyone!
