12 Blogging Days of Christmas - Smashley Sparkles

Hi Goddesses

Today sees the start of a series called The 12 Blogging Days of Christmas, where I have persuaded / blackmailed 12 blogger friends to help me celebrate Christmas and Hannukah.   First up today is the lovely Ashley from Smashley Sparkles.

Hello lovely people!  I am so excited to be here on The Crumpet's blog as a guest poster today.  When Debbie told me she was looking to do a 12 Days of Christmas/Holiday series I couldn't resist.  I really love the holidays and have so much fun doing my nails accordingly.

I definitely think no matter what you celebrate, no holiday mani is complete without some glitter!  So, for the base of this design I did a glitter gradient of China Glaze Ultamate Holiday (which I scored on clearance last year, woo!) and Orly Here Comes Trouble.  Ultamate Holiday is this gorgeous gold holo micro glitter and boy does it sparkle!  Here Comes Trouble is a bright green micro gitter with a few larger green glitters in there for a more chunky look.

I was originally going to marble over this base with red and clear, but that didn't work out too well for me, so I decided to do these stripes instead.  I used my striping brush and China Glaze Pointsettia.  I am still working on getting even widths and spacing when using my striper, but I think this time I did much better than I have in the past!

Thank you so much for reading, and thank you Debbie for having me!  I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with for the rest of this series!


Thanks Ashley !  I love that combination - the red really pops!  Stay tuned for the rest of the week where we'll have  a different blogger each day to treat you to a Christmas mani.

Enjoy xx :)
