O Christmas Tree

Hello! Christmas is less than a week away, can you believe it? After today I hope to have three more holiday manicures planned out for you, so stay tuned! That will be eight designs in total, so hopefully I'll give you some ideas for your Christmas manicure if you haven't thought of one yet. I'm pretty impressed with myself this year, considering that I only did a measly two designs last December :P

Monday's manicure was predominantly red glitter so this time around I went for green. I've seen a lot of creative Christmas tree manicures this season and wanted to try one too. I went for a very geometric version using a triangle print. For the most part I like it but I messed up the sides of the tree on the thumb a little. I guess I didn't plan it out well enough. Also, the stars were a last minute decision so I wish I had left enough room to put one on the thumb too :P

I started off with American Apparel T-Shirt. I used striping tape to block off triangles and filled them in with China Glaze Mistletoe Kisses. Then I went in with a white striping polish and painted the little triangles, finishing off the tree tops with star-shaped rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by!
