Holiday Nail Art Challenge: Day 7, Santa and Elves

Hi guys!! The Crumpet's Nail Tarts Holiday Challenge is almost through, this is the second to last post.  We have done Santa and Elf theme today.  I did these on Saturday night and am still currently wearing them, which is rare for me!  These were inspired by two different sources... I saw the Santa hat nail on Pinterest, but the photo didn't link back to a website, so I've got no idea who to credit!  If you know who did the original, which can be seen here, please let me know so I can link them!  The elf portion of this mani was from a cute tutorial I saw on TotallyCoolNails, which is here.

The polishes I used for these were China Glaze Paper Chasing, Orly Star Spangled, and Orly Au Champagne.  The belts and the buttons on the elf suits were done with acrylic paints.  I stuck a pearl on as the ball of the Santa hat, which came from that same gem set my mom sent me. (Thanks Mom!  You're the best!)  The pearl was attached with a bit of Au Champagne, and then sealed with top coat... surprisingly enough, this is still on my nail, and that is after doing a bunch of dishes!  I guess I will be sealing my gems from now on because this one wore sooooo much longer than the ones I used the other day.

Merry Christmas, everyone!  I hope you all enjoy some time with your loved ones, eat some yummy food, and receive whatever you may be wishing for.
