Christmas Mani #4: String of Lights!

Good Morning Lovelies!!!

I hope you are all doing wonderfully today!

Today's Mani is another fun Christmas design.

I started off with a basic french manicure.
1 coat of my Franken blush polish for the base, and a coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri "Whirlwind White" for the tips.

Then I took my Black Stripe Rite and drew random squiggly lines on each nail.

For the 'bulbs' I used:
Sally Hansen Extreme Wear, uh, not sure on the name, but it's the creamy yellow.  sorry!
Pure Ice "Crimson"  i think...I lost the paper I wrote the names down on!
Sinful Colors "Let's talk" (this shows up blue in the pics.... again.)
China Glaze "Frostbite"
Sinful Colors "San Francisco"

For the plug prongs I used the gold glitter stripe brush from the Color Club's "Pretty Shiny Things" Nail art kit that I received from them for review.  Review on this coming soon!!!



 There ya have it!

That's all for today my wonderful readers!

I hope you all have a fantastic day!

{{{Hugs}}}
Christy
