So, last week I received my second “Black Box” from Cult Cosmetics. The colors were definately fall colors but they didn’t strike me as Christmas-y!

I will be honest and tell you that I got the inspiration for this Christmas nail art from a Christmas card that was sent to us.

I was very surprised by how well the colors worked in the holiday theme.

Step 6. Apply painters tape to the bottom portion of the nail to mark off area where a large stripe of green will be.

Step 8. Once the green has dried, use “Rose Bowl” and a small pointed nail art brush to form a tear drop shape to the nail. While that is still sticky apply any type of sparkly nail jewels.

Step 9. I added some green stones to accent the green in the nail polish.

Finish with top coat and let dry!K_marked

I really liked it with just the stripping on it as well.  And I suppose that I could have used some green stripping tape for the ‘string that holds the ornament’. But, hey, that’s what makes nail art fun. You can play and play and play.

I hope you are enjoying all the Christmas art that I have been posting. I’m kinda addicted to it right now! It’s making me very excited for Christmas.
