12 Blogging Days of Christmas - Lisa from Cosmetic Sanctuary

Hi Goddesses

Another day, another blogger :)  and something wonderfully simple and classic today from Lisa of Cosmetic Sanctuary.


Hello everyone! This is Lisa with Cosmetic Sanctuary and I am so thrilled to have secured a spot for the 12 Blogger Days of Christmas with The Crumpet!  When I saw her idea I was hoping there was room for me, and here I am!

I am not amazingly good at nail art, so I generally try to keep it simple.  I was happy with how my holiday manicure turned out!

I started off with a base of China Glaze Glistening Snow (which I desperately need a backup of).  I used 3 coats for the base then topped it off with a quick dry top coat.  I sat with this on for almost an hour trying to decide what else I wanted to do.  Finally I decided to attempt Mistletoe on the accent nails!  I just got my first nail gem wheel so I opened that up and used 3 red gems for the berries.  For the leaves I was a little stumped.  I don't have nail art brushes or small nail art pens.  I grabbed a toothpick and dabbed some OPI Here Today... Aragon Tomorrow onto a plastic ziploc bag.  I used the toothpick to outline the mistletoe leaves and then dot the color in towards the middle.  Then I used Ciaté Ladylike Luxe to draw a thin line down the middle of the leaves.

Then I was finished!  My simple holiday manicure!

Thank you so much for allowing me to have a spot for the 12 Blogger Days of Christmas Debbie and I hope you all liked my mani!

Wow - Glistening Snow is gorgeous!  And I love the elegance of this mani.  Thanks Lisa <3
