Holiday Nail Art Challenge: Day 2, Gingerbread Men and Candy Canes

Hello again!  It is Day Two of the Crumpet's Nail Tart's Holiday Challenge!!  Today's theme is Gingerbread Men and Candy Canes.  Yum!  Gingerbread is very popular here in Sweden for the holidays so I have been eating a lot of it lately.

So for this challenge I did some stamping as well as some freehand nail art (which I desperately want to improve at!).  I started off with two coats of China Glaze Pointsettia on all of my nails.  Once those were completely dried I stamped them using my MASH Nail Art Polish in White and a diagonal stripe design from MASH Plate 40.  Next I freehanded on my gingerbread friend.  I used Color Club Gingerbread Man for his body, because, well, I just HAD to!  Finally, I decided that I would add some dots onto some of the candy cane stripes, and I did that with my dotting tool and Poinsettia.

Which do you guys prefer, candy canes or gingerbread?


  1. Adorable! I love your little gingerbread man!

  2. Aw, this is so cute! I love gingerbread man!

  3. This is great, Ashley! I love it! Haha speaking of gingerbread in Sweden, have you seen the craze going on now about gingerbread men are supposedly offensive to black people? It's all over Facebook after some news article about it... The country of taking offense, I'm telling you! ;)

  4. Stamping looks really pretty and I love that freehand gingerbread man.. Looks like something we make out in the oven :)
