Color of the Week – Belated Christmas Nail Art

Some of you guys wanted to see more nail arts and thank you for letting me know. Though Christmas has already passed and I’m doing a Christmas themed nail art 3 days after Christmas seems weird. But I got good news for you, I have more giveaways already lined up. Hopefully I can do it monthly or quarterly to show my appreciation. I just noticed I hit 400 followers.

So yea back to today’s CotW. As the first step, I pre-painted the nails with green, white and red, Christmas colors!

Instead of nail polishes, I used gel this time. I happen to have ibd Tropical Waterfall, Day Dreams and Satin Kimono. They’re the closest green, white and red colors I can find.

I also pushed myself to another level by playing with some acrylics. This is my very first time doing it. I wanted to be able to shape the design as I wanted. The product I used is the ibd FLEX sample kit.

It’s a lot harder to do than it seemed on the nail magazines and books. This is what I came up with, a snowman, a Christmas tree and a bow tie.

It’d be better to have the colored acrylic powders but since I only have the pink and white, I had to color it with some paints afterwards.

For more bling bling, I added nail jewels on it. Now it looks much better than before.

So how do you think of my first acrylic nail art work? I know I probably even didn’t do it right and it looked ugly. At least I had fun and I hope you did too reading it. And don’t forget to join my holiday giveaway which ends this weekend.

    Very cute, I’m liking the bling 🙂 But in all honesty, I don’t think nail-art will ever become my thing, well maybe on one nail on a long evening if I am extraordinarily zen… 😉 And congratulations on the 400!
