I WISH ): Unfortunately, it doesn't snow here in Australia, rather, it's a hot sticky summer Christmas for us. So a white Christmas is definitely on my bucket list! It probably won't be fulfilled any time soon, but hey, a girl can dream right :P
We finally have our Christmas tree up in the living room ...no thanks to me haha All thanks goes to my younger siblings who are still thrilled by the notion of decorating the tree. I let the two youngsters run wild with the decorations, lo and behold, they dug out the red and gold baubles from last year, and et voilà, they are now on my nails :D
The baubles themselves had a matte finish with the detailing done in gold and silver metallic paint, so I decided to mimic the effect by using a matte topcoat over the red before painting the gold details.
I painted a dotted design on the matte nails before the gold detailing just so I wouldn't a have a plain flat background for the snowflakes and tree. I used Orly Forever Crimson on the pointer, middle and pinky and Orly See Yah on the accent nails. For the gold, I used my ever trusty Orly Glitz.
Hoping for a more delicate snowflake design in the near future... fingers crossed!
