Day 16 - Fairy Lights Light-meh


Day 16 – Fairy Lights

Hi Goddesses

I’ve had a few differing ideas for this one, and in the end just got a bit muddled and could not decide which idea to go with.  I knew I wanted my lights to just be dots, but I have LOVED the manis I’ve seen where they have done lights on the wire – they have been awesome.

So, 5 nails, 3 bases.  Thumb and pinkie are based in CC Revvvolution, middle finger is CG Glittering Garland, and index and ring fingers are CG Cosmic – a black with silver glitter.  All were 1 coaters.  I was tempted to add a 2nd, but didn’t want to create too much dazzle for my lights to compete with!

The thumb and index finger are basically dot patterns, made with a variety of CG Twinkle Lights (how could I do this mani without using that) and CC Worth The Risque and Fashion Addict.  I picked dark backgrounds to represent the outdoor lights people do.

On the ring finger I took this a stage further.  We have some crazy people near us to do unbelievable Christmas displays in their gardens, so this is an example of one that I see regularly – a twinkle light Snowman, with hat of course.

Little finger is the word XMAS – my first real writing – haza!

And then the middle finger, possibly my fave, just CG Glittering Garland and CG Twinkle Lights to represent the lights on the Christmas Tree.

I quite like this, but I wish the thumb and index weren’t quite so similar – in my head they were going to look more different, but it didn’t quite happen!

PS if you want these 3 Color clubs, they are available for swapsies, just Facebook me 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.
