And Now I Have To Do NATIVITY ????!!!!!


Day 20 – The Nativity

Hi Goddesses

Wow we’re 2/3s through, and here we are, now, at the meaning of Christmas.

When I told Beth this was one of the challenges, she laughed.  Not a little giggle either, but an evil, hysterical mwahahahahahaha.  I would take umbrage at her, but she does have a fair point, and I was pretty stressed about this mani, although I think it sort of got there in the end.

All I have to say is, thank god for the angel!  The angel got recycled from Day 13, and gave me the confidence to realise I could use that shape to recreate various other characters.

So Crumpet – what “art” are you torturing us with now?  Wellllll ….

Thumb – the lovely angel on a background of Wet n Wild Hannah Pinktana

Index – Mary, wearing robes of CG First Mate, with white embellishment.

Middle – swaddled baby Jesus!  Hurrah, I pulled it off!  Swaddling uses Zoya Dove for the stripes.  Both Mary and Jesus are on a background of Fearne Brown (representing the stable)

Ring finger – I didn’t want to do the shepherd because I thought too many nails might look samey so I opted for the sheep!  I remembered Sarah Chalkboard Nails had done a decent sheep and I also Googled some images.  He’s ok, but he does look more like an albino pig.  Also, the CG Laser Lime background has given him jaundice.  Oh well, can’t win em all!

Pinkie – the king.  On a background of OPI Ogre The Top Blue with a CC Foiled crown (man those Foileds are useful!), and with Fearne Brown hair.  The boyf thought this was a deer with antlers ……. Oh dear …..

Phew, thank the LORD that’s over.

Enjoy xx J


Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
