Holiday Nail Art Challenge: Day 5, Christmas Decoration
Hi guys! Today is the fifth day of The Crumpet's Nail Tarts Holiday Challenge. Our theme for the day is Christmas Decorations. I chose to do a Christmas tree. I have been planning this mani since November, and I did it in the beginning of the month, and I've been saving it for this occasion! (Which was difficult because I wanted to post it right away!)
I just knew I had to try to make a Christmas tree with a water marble! Apparently I wasn't the only one with this idea, since I have seen one on Globe & Nail and my friend Jacki from Adventures in Acetone has done one as well. Jacki and I actually discussed that we both had this idea back in Novemeber as well, and I was so amused since she and I always seem to think alike about our nail designs. (<3 Jacki!!)
Anyway, the colors I used for this marble are China Glaze Holly-day and Ulta Professional Green with Envy. As usual I used one coat of OPI Funny Bunny to prep my nail before marbling. Both greens worked well in the water and together, so this was a pretty easy marble.
I wanted to add something that looked like the colored string of Christmas lights, so I used my dotting tools with multi-colors that would match. The colors I used were Zoya Isla, Orly Sweet Peacock, China Glaze Paper Chasing, and Color Club Almost Famous.
So there you have it, some water marbled Christmas trees! Hope you've enjoyed these, and I will try to get at least one more Christmas-y water marble up this week sometime for you guys.
