Advent Calendar Day 9 – Pine

Today’s challenge is “pine.”  I wanted to do something a little bit different, but simple and remembered seeing this post from The Daily Nail a long time ago.  I love the simplicity of the pale gold and pine branches.  And I really love how this mani turned out!  Definitely one of my favorites of the challenge so far!


For the base I used OPI Glitzerland.  It had been on my wishlist for probably over a year before I found it at Ulta, and it has become my favorite gold polish.  I love it!  I used OPI Get in the Espresso Lane for the branches (which are almost completely covered).  I used three shades of green for the pine needles to create depth – Julep Diane, Finger Paints Tough Art to Follow, and Sonia Kashuk Emerald City.


I think this is just so pretty! The worst part about daily challenges like the one I’m doing now is having to take manis like this off after only a day.  At least I can still stare at the pictures.
