Advent Calendar Day 7 – Ornaments

Today’s challenge theme is “ornaments.”  Since I didn’t really feel like painting actual ornaments on my nails, I thought I would take inspiration from an ornament design.  I really liked these ones from Crate & Barrel (they come in different colors, too), and since my cats would shatter them in a minute, having them on my nails is a nice option.  I really like how they turned out!

For the white base, I used my new favorite white polish, OPI Alpine Snow.  I really liked the shimmer of the dots on the ornaments, so I went with butter LONDON Victoriana for the dots.  It’s such a gorgeous color!  I actually just picked it up in the BL Cyber Monday sale, and this was my first time using it.  A little bit darker than the inspiration, but I love that it’s still frosty and wintry looking!

My dotting skills need a bit of improvement, but overall, I really like how these turned out!  I am really loving Victoriana.  I need to wear it as a full mani soon.
