Christmas is early this year

Goodmorning ladies!

Weekend!! Ok, I have to work today, but still. Do you have anything nice planned for this weekend?

Ok, so, it is still a little early to do anything christmas-y, but hey, you have to experiment first so you´ll know exactly what you are going to wear on christmas. My experiment actually failed, haha, so this is the first time I´m going to show you my other hand, since I messed up two fingers of my "regular" hand and I didn´t feel like re-doing it.

First is my basecolor on its own. Wow, what a pretty shade of green!!
This is China Glaze Jolly Holly, one coat and in artificial light to show the right color (my regular picture hand :P)

After this I put tape on part of the nails and painted the other half with China Glaze Party Hearty. This is a real christmas shade! It has glitter in different sizes and shapes in green, red and silver. It doesn´t get much more christmas-y then that.
I used the tape trick before and totally failed, but this time it did work just perfect! Only I wanted more... stupid me. So I used a toothpick to draw a small silver line. What was I thinking? I know I don´t have a steady hand so it was doomed to fail. And of course it did. So after 2 nails I decided that it wasn´t going to happen and didn´t do the rest of my nails with the silver line. This is the reason why I took pictures of my other hand.

Here it is:

I know, my fingers and cuticles are very dry. My skin really hates autumn and winter. There´s not much I can do about it, sorry.

I do like the result though. This might be my christmas mani, not sure yet.
Do you already have a mani planned for christmas? Or maybe something special for Sinterklaas? And what was your mani for Thanksgiving?

Thanks for watching!
