12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge ~ Gifts

Hello Dahlings!
 
As you can see, we're on the 6th challenge day & we're half way done! I've really enjoyed myself & am pretty sure I'll continue to do so. Many thanks to
Kristine & Lorene for hosting!!!
 
Tonight's line up zig zagging from left to right: Ruby Kisses Whiter Than White, Snow White, African Violet, Mardi Gras, Cast A Spell, Twilight Zone, Teal Envy & Steel Magnolia; plus Orly Be Brave. I was going for an all Ruby Kisses mani, but alas, I don't have a pink holographic bar glitter polish from Ruby Kisses.
 
This is 2 coats of Whiter Than White. It isn't streaky to apply nor does it dry to a chalky finish like many white polishes.
 
This is 2 coats of Snow White over Whiter Than White. Like most light colored, shimmery polishes, this one does benefit from a pair of white undies if one doesn't want to apply umpteen coats to achieve opacity & remove VNL.
 
Ta Da! OK, so not my best nails ever, but I think I did a reasonable job. I used my detail brush to place the bar glitters where I wanted them to create the ribbons & bows. I used the brushes in the bottles to paint the boxes & polish bottle, then used my short striper brush to straighten things.
 
Thanks for stopping by & please visit the other challenge players. They continue to do FANTABULOUS nail art for our viewing pleasure!
