Happy New Year! Once again, I had to continue with my tradition of doing the simplest possible design for the new year, which is to paint the upcoming year. For this manicure, I made decals for the numbers using my new silicone mat. I honestly think that the numbers would have been neater looking if I had just painted directly onto my nails, but I really wanted to play around with the mat. I used Zoya Finley and Zoya Aurora for the base, and the numbers are Milani and Color Club Worth The Risque.

These are my last Christmas nails of the year, and I decided to just go with the basics, a tree, a gift, and candy cane stripes. For this, I used Revlon Posh, Revlon Cherries In The Snow, Xtreme Wear Perfect Pear-ing, Xtreme Wear Pop Chart, For the glittery tree I used KB Shimmer Christmas Now, and the glittery present is Maybelline Precious Pearl.

For this Christmas manicure I really wanted to incorporate a plaid design and I came up with the cozy fireplace around that. I find freehand painting plaid designs is impossible to get perfect, but I think it looks alright, especially if you don't focus too closely on it. For the plaid I used China Glaze Take A Hike and China Glaze Merry Berry.

I wanted to do a Christmas design that was a little bit different for me, so I went with all shades of grey. Although, I suppose there's nothing really Christmas-y about the design, so it's really more of a winter scene. I used Zoya Tove, Revlon Iconic, and glitter from Maybelline Clearly Spotted and Maybelline Precious Pearl.

I'm currently working on some holiday nails, but for now I have manicure that I did a few weeks ago. For this one I really just wanted to use the stars from my last post some more. The glitters are from Wet N Wild Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the purple is China Glaze Mix and Mingle. It could have been neater, but the polish from the stars mushed some of the lines around.
