Happy Day-After Christmas!  I hope your holidays have so far been merry and bright and everything you wished them to be.  I got five new bottles of nail polish from the wonderful Boyfriend... the two Butter London polishes up there (which I had been eyeing but couldn't justify buying for myself, and so he snapped them up for me at ULTA while he was getting a haircut!) and two ORLY polishes and a top coat.  Isn't he a wonderful enabler?


This is my holiday manicure!  After I did my base coat, I sponged the tips with China Glaze Tinsel Town, which was very cranky and chipped continually as I did my holiday cooking and baking and dish washing.  I hope it'll hold up better as a whole-nail color... it perfectly matches the exorbitantly expensive amazing pewter sequined heels I bought for my recital (Happy Christmas to me!)


I stamped the holly leaf pattern from Bundle Monster Image Plate BM14 with Essence Stamp me! White and then with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lickety-Split Lime and dotted the three berries with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Rapid Red.  I was inspired by this guest post by Marta from ChitChat Nails on Ivana Thinks Pink... I think her holly leaves turned out better than mine.

I hope you are all enjoying your holidays and time with your families and new toys and everything else fun for the season!
