Hey everyone! Today is Day 4 of The Crumpet's Nail Tarts Holiday Challenge, and we are doing Presents and Gift Wraps as our theme. I made my nails into tiny gifts for you guys!

Last week I teased this photo of the base for this nail art on my Facebook page. This is two coats of Models Own Scarlet Sparkle, a beautiful red jelly polish with glowing red micro glitter in it. It has that lit from within look that makes a polish really special.
After my base was dry I stamped on this plaid design from MASH Plate 50 using my MASH Nail Art Polish in Black. I am always afraid to use designs like this with straight lines in them because I am not so good at lining the design up on my nail, but I amazed myself by getting them really straight on the first try! Don't you love it when that happens?
Once my wrapping paper design was all finished I added the ribbons and bows using CND Gold Chrome. I freehanded the ribbons with a striping brush, and then stamped the bows with a design from MASH Plate 28. Since the bows were the same color as the ribbon they needed a bit more detail added to them, which I did with a small nail art brush and MASH Nail Art Polish in Black.

I am soooo in love with how these turned out, I think they may be one of my favorite designs I've done yet! I wore these to my work Christmas party too, they seemed so appropriate. :)
Don't forget to see what everyone else came up with for today's theme!
