Merry Christmas!! Winter Scene with Mom

For Christmas, I decided to do matching manicures with my mom. She loved the idea even though she wasn't sure about it at first.

I first painted both of our nails with a base of L.A. Girl Color Addict in Hooked. She certainly wasn't sure about blue nails! :P

Then, I stamped snowmen from XJ1, XJ6, and Cheeky Jumbo Plate 6 as nail decals with Funky Fingers Black Knight. I colored them in with a dotting tool using Funky Fingers Gesso. Then I put the decals on her nails and stamped the snowflake image on her ring fingers as an accent from Cheeky Jumbo Plate 6 with Konad White.

I used the same base and accent nails on my hands. I made decals with the trees from plates XJ1, XJ6, and Cheeky Jumbo Plate 6 with Funky Fingers Black Knight. I colored them in with a dotting tool using Konad green stamping polish.

I really enjoyed doing my mom's nails and really loved matching them to mine. My Uncle decided to get in the show and pulled out all kinds of Christmas items to take her photo with different poses. He really enjoyed thinking of poses for her!

I finished off the photos with intertwining her nails and mine to take a photo and it looks like a winter-wonderland!!

Have you ever done matching manicures with anyone?

H is for Holographic: Cheetah Style

Today for the A2Z Challenge, we have H is for Holographic. I wanted to do something different so I went for cheetah print over a holographic base.

I started off with Glitter Gal Wysteria on all nails.


Then, I stamped the Cheetah print from Sugar Bubbles SB002 with Kleancolor Pastel Purple and topped with Seche Vite.

Isn't this a fun manicure?
