12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge ~ Wreaths

Hello Dahlings!
 
HFG! I can hardly believe we're on day 9 of the challenge already
& by next Tuesday...we'll be done.
 
Today's line up: Ruby Kisses Whiter Than White, Pitch Black Darkness
& Snow White; plus China Glaze Red Pearl.
 
I showed both Whiter Than White & Snow White recently, so I skipped my usual base color swatch shot & went straight to the nail art. I started with the 2 whites on 8 fingers & Pitch Black Darkness on my accent nails. I then added French tips in PBD & big dots using the largest ball dotting tool I have to add the Red Pearl. For the wreath I used WTW & the same dotting tool to make the roundish wreath shape & then added SW. The bow was made using Red Pearl, my dotting tool & short detail brush followed by baby dots of Red Pearl. A coat of Seche Vite & I was done!
 
Thanks for stopping by & please visit the other challengers!
Thanks Miss K & Lorene for hosting this awesome challenge!

    1. Thanks! It takes a lil effort, but growing long nails is doable. I'll be posting how I grew mine this long in the next week or so.
