Christmas Challenge Day 17 - Decorations


Day 17 – Putting Up The Decorations

Hi Goddesses

Yay, we are now officially in the home straight.  Over half the challenges done, and sometimes the biggest challenge seems to be not to repeat yourself!

There were so many ways I could go with this one, but I didn’t want it to just be a rehash of another Christmas mani, so this time I picked some of my favourite things about Christmas Decorations.

Firstly, on the thumb, yes we STILL have that angel – hasn’t she been useful lol.  I always have an angel on my tree to look down and bless us, so I kept her.

My index finger is just a simple tree made with a dotting tool.  I have silver and red baubles on my tree which came from a very posh shop in York called Christmas Angels.  They are really good quality and will last generations.  As well as the baubles, I have wooden stars, hearts and trees that hang off the tree.

Without ruining the Santa mani to come, I thought I would just do a very simple glimpse of the big man.  There is always a display of Santas around my house at Christmas and I have only one rule – they must be fat!  I like my Santas to have a big belly and a big bottom, otherwise they don’t join the club J

Ring finger is a close up of one of my red baubles.  I have 6 huge red disco / glitter balls that hang off the tree and reflect light – they are simply amazing and probably my favourite decoration of all.

And then to keep with the simple theme, the pinkie is CG Starboard with CG Golden Enchantment sprinkled over it to represent the twinkling lights on the tree.  I have to have my lights on pretty much all the time – it brings the tree to life and makes me so happy.

It’s getting closer !!!

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.
