Crowstoes Making Christmas Gradient (with macro!)

Merry Christmas!!!  I hope all my readers are having a wonderful holiday season filled with love and joy.  Despite being far away from our families while we are here in Sweden, Mr. Sparkles and I are making the best of our Christmas.  It is our first one as a married couple, and his first white Christmas.  We've got about a meter of snow outside, and it was snowing all morning... It is probably the whitest Christmas I've ever had myself.  Yesterday we went to an outdoor museum here in Stockholm, and it was lovely with all the snow.  They have a bunch of native animals there as well, so we got to see some fun things like reindeer, moose, foxes and lynxes playing in the snow.  Today we are making a Christmas ham for dinner and lounging around the house staying warm!

I did these nails today because I just had to use Crowstoes Making Christmas.  I've just gotten this and two other Crowstoes polishes in the mail from OverallBeauty.com.  Making Christmas is better than I imagined, but it was hard for me to capture the little holo bits in my photos.  It is so much more than a red, green, and silver glitter.  It is 100% my favorite Christmas polish and I can't wait until next year when I can use it again!

I layered MC over Zoya Sooki, which, in my opinion, is the perfect red crelly.

Mmmm look at that festive goodness!! This is certainly Christmas in a bottle.
